Peter Bosek

Chief Retail Officer, Managing Board Member, Erste Group

Peter is leading the digital transformation at Erste Group in his role as the managing board member responsible for retail banking. He is a driving force behind Erste’s widely-admired digital banking platform George, which already has over 4.5 million users in four countries and will continue to grow in the group’s home markets in Central Europe and possibly beyond.

Founded in 1819 as the first Austrian savings bank, Erste Group went public in 1997 with a strategy to expand its retail business into Central and Eastern Europe. Since then Erste Group has grown through numerous acquisitions and organically to become one of the largest financial services providers in the Eastern part of the EU in terms of clients and total assets.
