ATHENS, April 1 (Reuters) - Greece’s Eurobank has appointed former Minister of Finance George Zanias as its new non-executive chairman, the lender said on Monday.
The change was prompted by former chairman Nikolaos Karamouzis’ decision to depart, the bank said in a news release. Karamouzis announced his intention last year to bow out at the end of March 2019.
Zanias, who was Minister of Finance from May to July 2012, is currently a professor at the Athens University of Economics, and is also a former chairman National Bank of Greece and Piraeus Bank. (Reporting by Athens newsroom; Editing by Jan Harvey)
