Anna Zakrzewski has been appointed group chief operating officer and member of the executive committee of Quintet Private Bank, based in Luxembourg and operating across Europe and the UK. This appointment is subject to regulatory approval.
Zakrzewski worked for more than 20 years at Boston Consulting Group (BCG) as managing director and partner, before being promoted to the financial institution’s leadership team and heading the wealth management segment worldwide. She joined Quintet in Luxembourg on Monday 25 September and will work closely with the outgoing group COO, Eli Leenaars, during a transition period.
Leenaars will leave Quintet at the end of the year after a career spanning almost 40 years in various management positions at four different banks in eight countries. He has a number of non-executive roles in the US and Europe, as well as personal business interests that will require more of his time and attention.
“I am grateful to Eli for his important contribution to Quintet, including significantly enhancing our core processes, facilitating greater efficiency and increased collaboration in service to our clients,” said group CEO Chris Allen, adding: “At the same time, I am delighted to welcome Anna to our firm. Building on her distinguished track record leading and implementing large strategy programs, post-merger integrations, transformations and growth agendas in wealth management, Anna will play a key role in driving Quintet’s sustained success.”
