The European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has appointed new national leads for Tunisia, Lebanon and Morocco, and a regional lead for Central Europe – an office covering the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovak Republic and Slovenia.

The new appointees will each serve as a head of EBRD operations in their country or region, including being responsible for investments underway. They are:

He is a dual Tunisian and French national who joined the EBRD in 2014 in Tunisia where he has led the EBRD’s investments and financing for the private sector. In 2020 he was appointed as acting head for Tunisia’s office and managed the Bank’s operations there. Before joining the EBRD, Mr Dinguizli worked for ten years in investment banking at Credit Agricole CIB in Paris.

Nodira Mansurova, Tunisia
Based in Tunis, Ms Mansurova succeeds Antoine Sallé de Chou, who has been appointed head of Morocco. She is a dual Uzbek and British national who joined the EBRD in 2001 as regional head for the bank’s SME finance and development programme in Central Asia.

Mr Sallé de Chou, Morocco
Based in Casablanca, Sallé de Chou succeeds Marie-Alexandra Veilleux-Laborie. A French national, he joined the EBRD in 2013 as senior counsellor for strategy and policy before being appointed head of office in Tunisia in 2017. Before joining the EBRD, he worked in management consulting in London, and with the French Treasury.

Nora Kocsis, Central Europe

Based in the Slovak capital Bratislava, Ms Kocsis is a Hungarian national who joined the EBRD in 2001 from ABN Amro Bank and held positions in the financial institutions department. She went on to senior roles, managing the bank’s operations in Bulgaria as acting director, serving as lead sector economist and adviser to the EBRD’s senior leadership.

The Central Europe role covers  the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovak Republic and Slovenia.

She commented: ‚ÄúI am delighted to take on this new role and look forward to making a real contribution as the economies of the region are facing the challenge to recover from the Covid-19 crisis not only swiftly, but also sustainably. The green transition is a big and urgent task ahead. We will work with our partners towards greener, more sustainable and digitalised economies.‚ÄĚ

The appointments follow the announcement last month of a new managing director of corporate strategy, Carlos San Basilio.
