Moscow, 17 October 2007 – The MDM Bank Board of Directors made a number of important decisions at its meeting on the 16th of October.

The organizational structure and management team approved by the Board are intended to bring the Bank’s managerial processes in line with the development strategy we aim to implement. We are planning for the bank’s future. We want the people who are leading the Bank today to think medium- and long-term. We are confident that the joint efforts of the Bank’s employees, led by the new management team, will secure the Bank’s stability, growth and innovation.”
