Nordea Bank AB (NRBAY) said Tuesday that it has appointed Christopher Rees, currently deputy head of wholesale banking and head of markets, as its new chief financial officer with effect from March 1.

The Nordic financial-services group said Mr Rees has also been appointed head of group finance and treasury, as well as group executive management member.

Mr. Rees joined Nordea in 2015 as wholesale banking chief operating officer and his career in the sector began in 1996, the company said.

The company has been seeking a new CFO since November, following Heikki Ilkka's decision to step down from the role and leave Nordea.

The handover from Mr. Ilkka to Mr. Rees will start immediately, the company said.
