New Appointments to Alternatif Bank Senior Management
Seçkin Mutlubaş was appointed as the Restructuring and Legal Follow-up EVP in Alternatif Bank, maintaining its operations with the consultant and prudent banking approach.
With regard to the new appointment, Alternatif Bank Deputy CEO and Board Member Hamdi İlkay Girgin stated; “I am glad to see Mr. Seçkin Mutlubaş, our valuable team member that fulfilled the role of Loan Restructuring and Legal Follow-up Director under the roof of Alternatif Bank, in our senior management as an EVP. As Alternatif Bank, we place great emphasis on keeping our asset quality at a high level in line with our ‘Prudent Banking’ approach. Here, particularly the improvement in our collection performance contributes quite positively to both our non-performing loan ratio and our financial results. I sincerely believe that Mr. Seçkin will make significant contributions to the goals of our bank in the upcoming period and, hereby, I wish him success in his new role.”
Hamdi İlkay Girgin, referring to the success of the Bank in assignment of its managers internally, thus completed his statement: “Growing with our own philosophy, values, and corporate culture are among our strategic priorities. In this context, we make a point of assigning our leaders, who will carry over our bank to the future, from within our organization. Thanks to the success of our talent programs, we make 80% our appointments and assignments at the level of manager and above internally. This ratio is meaningful and valuable in terms of validating soundness and advantage of our strategy.”
Gökay Dede, emphasizing that their biggest support in adoption of such innovations as the Bank was their clients, expressed “Our studies to improve the experience on our digital channels and increase our range of transactions are ongoing in consideration of recommendations and requests received from 9 separate channels that we established to hear from our clients, never forgetting that our focus is the expectations of our clients, we develop all of our projects in that vein. As the closest example to this approach, we made the pilot version of our new mobile application, which we will soon introduce to our clients and throughout Turkey, available for our clients to use and experience. We maintain our application development studies with the feedback and recommendations from our clients, who have been actively using our Bank for a long time. We are thrilled to provide our clients soon with brand-new value propositions in digital banking with our new mobile application. We will continue to add value to the lives of our clients with the effort to offer what is new and different at all times.”
Seçkin Mutlubaş, having been appointed to EVP position, made the following remarks with regard to his new assignment: “Alternatif Bank diverges positively from the broader sector in terms of loan portfolio quality and non-performing loan ratio. ‘Prudent and Consultant Banking’ approach of our Bank is a quite important factor in this success. Based on the strength derived from here, we will decrease risk cost of our bank further and continue our operations uninterruptedly with all of my teammates to achieve our goals.”
