The supervisory board of German bank Commerzbank has appointed Sabine Mlnarsky (pictured) to its board of managing directors, where she will assume responsibility for the group human resources division.
Effective from 1 January 2023, Mlnarsky will succeed Sabine Schmittroth as chief human resources officer and labour relations director. Schmittroth is leaving Commerzbank when her contract expires at the end of 2022.
Mlnarsky has more than two decades of experience in the field of human resources and is joining from Austria’s Erste Group Bank, where she led the human resources department from 2016. She was also responsible for human resources at the Lufthansa subsidiary Austrian Airlines between the 2013 and 2016.
Helmut Gottschalk, chairman of the supervisory board at Commerzbank, said: “We are pleased that with Sabine Mlnarsky we have acquired a manager who is both experienced and dynamic, someone who is not only highly familiar with our industry, but who has also demonstrated her extensive abilities in periods of transition.
“She will bring fresh impetus to the human resources work at Commerzbank while developing new prospects for working in the bank and reinforce the sense of optimism in the company and enhance the image of Commerzbank as an employer.
“At the same time, the supervisory board would like to thank Sabine Schmittroth for her services to the company in various functions over the course of nearly four decades and wishes her all the very best in the next phase of her life.”
