After nine years serving in senior positions in Nordea, Head of Personal Banking Sweden and Country Senior Executive Sweden, Anna Storåkers has decided to leave Nordea.
“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”, says Anna Storåkers.
Anna Storåkers has participated in Nordea’s transformation during the last decade through her different positions, among them as Head of Banking Sweden and Head of Group Strategy and Corporate Development.
“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”, says Anna Storåkers.
Anna Storåkers will keep close contact with Nordea, since she will continue in one or more of the board positions she has today in Nordea such as Nordea Life Holding.
Anna Storåkers’s manager, Topi Manner, Head of Personal Banking and a member of Group Executive Management, is sad to see Anna leave Nordea.
“I truly regret that Anna will leave our bank. At the same time, I would like to sincerely thank Anna for her great work, leadership and many accomplishments. She is a colleague who will be missed. Anna has built a strong and very capable management team that I trust to deliver on our plans for Sweden until we have a new person in place”, says Topi Manner.
The process to find Anna’s successor will start immediately. Anna Storåkers will stay in Nordea in her current role until 1 September.
