Maja Stevkova Shterieva Ph.D. is the new president of the Macedonian Banking Association. The current Chief Finance Officer and member of the Board of Directors of Komercijalna Banka AD Skopje comes to the place of Kosta Mitrovski, who, according to the Statute of the Macedonian Banking Association, terminated his mandate prematurely due to the termination of his function as a member of a bank’s board of directors. This is the only decision at the 11th meeting of the Assembly of the MBA.
– I am very grateful to the trust you have all given me to lead this important association. The Macedonian Banking Association is a significant factor in the banking sector in the country and although it acts as an independent entity for a relatively short time, in the past period it has realized many important activities. In the next period we will continue with the activities and programs that the MBA has practiced so far, but we will try to introduce some new programs and projects that will contribute to strengthening and improving the banking sector and getting closer to all stakeholders. In fact, it is one of the basic roles of the MBA, stated Shterieva after the appointment of the new function.
