Gabriela Nistor will be the new CEO of Idea::Bank

Gabriela Nistor, Deputy CEO at Banca Transilvania, with responsibilities in retail banking and network development, will be the new CEO of Idea::Bank. An experienced leader, Gabriela Nistor has been working for Banca Transilvania since 1995. For the past 17 years she has been coordinating the retail, private banking and network development activities and since 2013 she has been the bank’s deputy CEO. She has represented the bank in several boards of BT Group companies. She Chairs the Executive Committee of Visa Romanian Member Forum (since 2008) and is Vice President of the Romanian Banks Association (since 2022). Gabriela Nistor holds an EMBA degree from the University of Sheffield and was a finalist in the Study UK Alumni Awards 2021, Professional Achievements category, Europe.

Banca Transilvania’s plan is to build a 100% digital bank around Idea::Bank, for customer segments with an appetite for remote banking. While previous bank acquisitions have contributed to the consolidation of BT due to their size, Idea::Bank is part of the strategy to accelerate the digital transformation of Banca Transilvania. 

“I am extremely honored to accept this challenge of building the first exclusively digital bank . I am confident that we will continue the success of Banca Transilvania with the new bank, part of the BT Group, which has Idea::Bank as its foundation. We are thus preparing the BT Group even more for the future. We have big ambitions and we are allocating all the necessary resources and, as always, we are putting our soul and heart into the project that is starting now. I want to thank my retail banking team at Banca Transilvania for everything we have built so far together, to the BT top management for their trust and I look forward to joining the new team.”  StatesGabriela Nistor.

She will be appointed on the new position once the approvals from the supervisory authorities have been obtained.

Part of the Idea::Bank’s Management Committee is also Sinan Kircali - Executive Vice President Operations, Alin Fodoroiu - Executive Vice President Business and Sorin Dumitrescu - Executive Vice President Risk. Mioara Popescu, Executive CEO of the Management Committee and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Idea::Bank, will continue as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Idea.

The Idea::Bank acquisition agreement was signed in October 2021. Since then, the two banks have operated separately and the integration was achieved with the help of the both banks’ employees.
