In a live broadcast to the over 6400 employees, Duda Melzer officially took over as Executive President of the RBS Group on Tuesday, June 3rd, and strengthened his commitment to the Group’s technological development while still retaining the human dimension in the three pillars of its business – communications, digital, and business education.
Nelson Sirotsky, the former Executive President and Melzer’s uncle, will remain on the Board of Directors and the Editorial Committee of RBS Group. Sirotsky has been with the company for 41 years, the last 21 of which were as head of the Group’s Executive Presidency. Despite his different role, Nelson Sirotsky will still be critical to the success of the Group’s management.
The inaugural ceremony was attended by 450 people, with Yamandu Costa performing the National Anthem, and Fernanda Montenegro delighted the entire celebration. The event also included RBS company history, photos, and tributes, including a memorable tribute to Ione Sirotsky, wife of RBS’ founder Mauricio Sirotsky Sobrinho (both now deceased), former company Presidents Jayme Sirotsky and Nelson Sirotsky, and the new CEO, Eduardo Sirotsky Melzer.
