Austrian Foundation ERSTE Stiftung has appointed Boris Marte as CEO. Marte has been a member of the foundation’s Managing Board since 2016, as well as acting as deputy CEO. He replaces Mario Catasta.
The chairman of the Supervisory Board Andreas Treichl said: ‘I would like to thank Mario very much for everything he has done in his life for the Erste Group and the ERSTE Foundation and I am happy that he will stay with our family. Boris Marte will primarily promote the further development on the content and project level and strengthen the positioning of the core shareholder of the Erste Group.’
Treichl also said, ‘Mario Catasta informed me last week that he wanted to step down for private reasons, but that he would like to continue his availability to the ERSTE Foundation’s Managing Board.’
ERSTE Stiftung is one of the members of the Host Committee for the upcoming EFC Conference in Vienna.
