UniCredit Global Securities Services (GSS) is pleased to announce that, with effect from 1 April 2014, Borislav Hitov will be taking over responsibilities as Head of GSS in Bulgaria following the internal promotion of Veselin Stefanov to Business Development Manager in Global Transaction Banking (GTB).
Borislav has been part of our GSS team as a relationship manager in Bulgaria since 2012, playing a key role in the development of our Bulgarian business. He started his career in 2006 working in custody operations at another Bulgarian bank, gaining valuable experience in servicing a wide range of international and domestic customers. Borislav is a graduate of the University of National and World Economy in Sofia.
During the upcoming months, Veselin will be gradually handing over all tasks and responsibilities to Borislav, ensuring a smooth transition in the operation and management of our local team.
We are also pleased to announce that, again with effect from 1 April 2014, Elmedina Garibovic will be taking over responsibilities as Head of GSS in Slovenia, following the personal decision of Vanda Mocnik-Kohek to step down and allow her to concentrate on the client relationships with our cross border client.
Elmedina has been part of the GSS team in Slovenia as a relationship manager since 2009, supporting Vanda and the whole team in developing and enhancing our product range and service quality. She started her carrier in a local brokerage company in 2000, gaining substantial experience in the securities industry. Elmedina graduated in 2012 at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana from banking and finance.
During the upcoming months, Vanda will be handing over all tasks and responsibilities to Elmedina, while continuing to work at UniCredit GSS in Slovenia as a relationship manager for international clients. Vanda's experience and knowledge of our business have been key in becoming the number one securities services provider in Slovenia and her ongoing support in the future will ensure the continuity of service excellence offered by our team in Ljubljana.
Please join us in congratulating both Borislav and Elmedina for their new appointments and in wishing them further success in affirming the leadership position of UniCredit GSS in their respective countries. At the same time, we would like to thank both Vanda and Veselin for their valuable contributions as Heads of GSS in Slovenia and Bulgaria respectively. We wish Veselin all the best in his future endeavours and continued career within the Group and, in Vanda’s case, are happy to be able to continue counting on her in her future relationship management role.
