UniCredit Bank Celebrates 25 Years in Saint Petersburg
UniCredit Bank celebrates anniversary of its operation in Saint Petersburg where the Bank opened the first regional office 25 years ago. Today, the Bank’s branch in Saint Petersburg is a great contributor to the regional economy. It provides services to retail customers, and small and medium-sized enterprises in 15 additional offices, as well as to major enterprises of the Northwest Federal District in Saint Petersburg and Arkhangelsk, where the Bank operates as a branch and a representative office, respectively.
«For 25 years of operation in the Northwest Area, we have been able to establish longstanding partnerships with top-ranked regional companies. Together, we have delivered many interesting projects, even in the challenging periods for the economy. Furthermore, we have cooperated actively with international companies engaged in the localization of business in Russia, and, specifically, in Saint Petersburg and the Northwest Area, by providing them with a high level of services that UniCredit Group offers all over the world and retaining the position of the largest Russian bank with foreign capital1,» comments Mikhail Alekseev, Chairman of the Management Board of UniCredit Bank.
«I believe that the best performance indicator is loyalty expressed in the time length spent with the company. It refers to both our customers and employees. Companies of the region have been doing business with us for decades. I joined the branch in 2003 and have known many of them for 15 years. On top of that, many customers who obtained their first car loans back in the 2000s are still with us. Today, in addition to traditional banking services, they take advantage of structured investment and insurance products, use multi-channel banking services, grow and develop together with us. As for our employees, people feel comfortable working and growing as part of our team, and this is supported by the fact that 13 people have worked in the branch since it opened its doors twenty five years ago,» comments Svetlana Stavitskaya, Branch Manager of Petersburg Branch of AO UniCredit Bank.
The long-term objectives UniCredit Bank set for the region include maintaining and strengthening its strong positions in the banking sector, as well as further improvement of its product offer and customer services. Additionally, special emphasis will be placed on the development of multi-channel services in accordance with the current market trends.
