Nordics financial group Nordea has announced that Anna Storåkers, its head of Personal Banking Sweden and country senior executive Sweden, has decided to leave ending a nine-year stint with the company.
Storåkers will remain in her current role until 1 September and will continue in one or more of the board positions she currently holds in Nordea such as Nordea Life Holding. The process to find her successor will start immediately, Nordea said.
Storåkers held a number of positions at Nordea including head of Banking Sweden and head of Group Strategy and Corporate Development.
“After many great years at Nordea and in my mid-career phase, I have decided that it is time for me to think about the next phase of my career. This is a personal decision. I will stay in Nordea over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition”, said Storåkers in a statement.
“I am very proud of the cultural and digital transformation journey at Nordea, and how much we have accomplished together in bringing the bank into the future. Some examples are that Nordea in Sweden today runs 40% of advisory meetings online and the launch of Apple Pay last fall. The large investments into technology and compliance have put Nordea in a good position.
“So I feel confident in leaving Nordea at this stage, knowing that the bank is well prepared for the future. I am every day impressed by the quality of people in Nordea, and the many achievements made”, she added.
