Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nova Ljubljanska Banka (NLB), which acquired 83.23% of the stake in Komercijalna Banka, Blaz Brodnjak has said that NLB will retain Komercijalna Banka’s brand. Brodnjak said at a press conference at the Kopaonik Business Forum that the purchase of Komercijalna Banka was a privilege and obligation for him, adding that he was proud that the Serbian Government had recognized NLB as the right partner for Komercijalna Banka. “There were many speculations these days about whether we will retain the Komercijalna Banka brand, we will keep the Komercijalna Banka brand, because we are impressed with the brand’s acceptance, so the bank will be called NLB Komercijalna Banka,” Brodnjak said. According to him, Serbia has always been the most interesting market for NLB, adding that it took them several years to buy something extra, although NLB Belgrade had excellent results, but that, as he said, was a “small operation”. “We plan to build a serious story with Komercijalna Banka, we will be one of the three most important players on the market, and what remains to be done now is a transaction with Komercijalna Banka,” Brodnjak said.
