Bernd Träxler named EBRD chief compliance officer


Former Erste Group chief compliance officer will begin his new role in February.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has announced the appointment of Bernd Träxler as its new chief compliance officer.

Bernd Träxler will lead the Office of the Chief Compliance Officer and will take a direct role in ensuring the EBRD’s integrity and reputation by promoting ethical standards across its activities.

Mr Träxler replaces Lisa Rosen, who left the EBRD in October 2021, and will take up his new role on 15 February.

EBRD president Odile Renaud-Basso said: “We look forward to benefiting from Bernd’s in-depth knowledge of compliance, regulatory affairs and banking, as well as his considerable leadership experience.”

An Austrian national, Mr Träxler has a wealth of experience managing compliance and financial crime for global financial institutions, especially in central and eastern Europe.

He joins the Bank following his most recent role as chief compliance officer at Erste Group. Before this, he was head of compliance and regulatory affairs at Western Union International Bank.
