Rupert Dollinger to join the Board of ERSTE Foundation

12. January 2012

Dollinger was staff manager of Erste Bank der oesterreichischen Sparkassen AG for 18 years until June 2010 and of Erste Group Bank AG from 2007. Under his aegis as Chief Human Resources Officer, the bank developed into a Central European player. He is more than familiar with the international perspective of ERSTE Foundation and its commitment to people.

The mandates of ERSTE Foundation Board Members Andreas Treichl (chairman), Boris Marte and Richard Wolf (both have been members since 2008) will also be renewed for a period of five years.

ERSTE Foundation evolved from Erste Österreichische Spar-Casse in 2003.  As an Austrian savings bank private foundation, it is committed to charitable work and, at the same time, has a special responsibility as the major shareholder of Erste Group. It invests the income it receives from its shareholdings into social development in Austria and Central and South Eastern Europe.
