BUCHAREST - Maria Rousseva, a seasoned banking executive with over twenty years of experience, has been appointed as the CEO of BRD-Groupe Societe Generale (OTC: SCGLY ) for a four-year term. The announcement comes after the National Bank of Romania gave its approval, as confirmed by a Bucharest Stock Exchange report today.

Rousseva, holding a Master's in Business Studies from Leipzig University, has previously held significant positions within the banking sector, including Deputy CEO at Expressbank Bulgaria and Executive Board Chairman and CEO at Societe Generale Bank Serbia. She is also recognized for her contributions as a member of the Management Committee at BRD.

Her appointment follows the resignation of François Bloch on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, who stepped down to pursue other responsibilities within the Societe Generale Group. Rousseva's tenure as CEO will commence from the third working day following her approval, at which point she will step down from her current role as Deputy CEO of Global Corporates.

Petre Barac conveyed this strategic leadership shift, which is expected to harness Rousseva's extensive expertise gained through her various roles across Eastern Europe and Russia. Rousseva's appointment signifies a new chapter for BRD-Groupe Societe Generale as it continues to navigate the evolving banking landscape.
