Germany's HypoVereinsbank Names New Private Client Head

The Munich-headquartered bank has made a couple of senior appointments, with one named as its new private client business chief.

HypoVereinsbank, the German bank that is part of UniCredit, yesterday announced that René Babinsky (pictured below) will become its new head of private client business.

His successor as regional manager for the North-East region will be announced shortly, the bank, which is headquartered in Munich (pictured), said in a statement. 

Separately, Georgiana Lazar (pictured below) is joining as head of “people and culture management.”

Babinsky will be taking up the role from 1 March this year. He has worked for UniCredit since 2008, initially in the corporate customer area. He has moved to a number of roles, such as becoming head of corporates for Berlin before moving into the private client segment in 2020.

Lazar and Babinsky will be promoted to management level. 

Marion Höllinger is the bank’s chief executive.
