Prior to that, she was Head of Wealth Management at HSBC in Athens. Lena Lascari started her career at Credit Commercial de France, where she worked from 1986 to 2001 in various roles, including Country CEO of the bank’s Greek branches from 1997 to 2001.
Adrian Kyriazi, Head of Continental Europe Region at EFG International: “We are delighted that Lena Lascari is taking on this new role. Our strategic hub in Luxembourg plays an important role in EFG’s overall growth strategy, particularly in the Continental Europe region. With her broad knowledge of EFG and her acknowledged experience in the private banking industry, we believe that Lena is the ideal person to lead this regional business forward and to further strengthen our footprint in Continental Europe. We also wish to thank Konstantinos Karoumpis for his valuable contribution to our bank and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
