- Alexander Libor joins the Concardis Payment Group from Zurich Insurance Group Germany
- As CHRO, Libor will help to achieve the integration of portfolio companies and the digital transformation of the newly founded Group
The Concardis Payment Group is continuing to expand its management team: Alexander Libor, previously Executive HR Manager at the Zurich Beteiligungs AG insurance company in Bonn and Frankfurt, will be taking up his new role as Chief Human Resources Officer from 1 July 2018. Shortly after the CEO Robert Hoffmann and CIO Jana Brendel (also starting on 1 July 2018) got on board, the Concardis Payment Group has thus gained another top manager who will drive the strategic alignment of the HR division to promote further growth and to bring about the group’s digital transformation.
Alexander Libor has over 15 years of experience in human resources. At Zurich Beteiligungs AG, he was responsible for all personnel matters and organisational issues within the Zurich Group in Germany. He initiated its digital transformation and successfully established flexible business units. Previously, Libor was responsible for the global HR management at Celesio AG in Stuttgart as Director of Human Resources after working as Global Head of Human Resources at GfK SE in Nuremberg for four years.
“The future development and long-term success of the Concardis Payment Group will depend on strengthening the entire team and the cooperation within the team while anchoring digital expertise within the Group. This will not only require new structures but also a significant cultural shift. I am delighted to be able to drive the Concardis Group forwards on this path,” Libor says.
“In terms of change within a company, it all comes down to the staff. In this regard, the Human Resources division will play a key role in our digital transformation. We are pleased to have Alexander Libor on board as a recognised expert. He will make a significant contribution to turning the Concardis Payment Group into a digital payment champion in the DACH region”, says Robert Hoffmann, CEO of the Concardis Payment Group.
The Concardis Payment Group was founded in early April 2018. On 4 June 2018, the Group announced its merger with Nets A/S, the leading provider of digital payment services in northern Europe. This merger is subject to the approval of the relevant antitrust authorities. The completion of the merger is expected in the fourth quarter of 2018.
