Ikano Bank has announced that it has promoted Henrik Eklund to Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Eklund is currently Chief Operations Officer (COO) and has been interim CEO for Ikano Bank since the beginning of the year.

Eklund joined Ikano Bank as Chief Operations Officer in May 2018. Before that, he was COO of Resurs Bank responsible for the Operations department and its transformation into a sales performance-driven customer centre.  Eklund has extensive experience with banking from his time at Resurs Bank, and he brings entrepreneurial drive and knowledge of e-commerce from his years with CDON.

Mats Håkansson, Chair of the Ikano Bank Board said “After a thorough external recruitment process, we decided to appoint Henrik as we believe he is the right person for the job, but since he is still relatively new to Ikano, he is initially appointed interim CEO to enable a smooth handover. He is down-to-earth, energetic and shows strong leadership that fits Ikano’s culture and values.”

“We are convinced that he will successfully continue the work started to increase the speed in Ikano Bank’s business transformation. Together with my colleagues.”
