Birgitta Leijon to become General Manager of Helaba’s Stockholm branch

Birgitta Leijon is taking over as General Manager of Helaba's Stockholm branch on 1 February 2019. From there, together with the "Nordic team" operating in Frankfurt and Stockholm, she will be respon­sible for the bank's real estate business in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark. Helaba's business activities in Northern Europe include commercial real estate finance as well as the divisions of Business Clients and Corporate Finance.

Helaba converted its re­presen­tative office in the Swedish capital into a branch as recently as last year. In doing so, the bank under­scored the impor­tance of the Nordic markets and positioned itself even more prominently as a reliable partner close to its local customers. Michael Kröger, respon­sible for inter­national real estate finance at Helaba, emphasises: “Birgitta Leijon is an experienced real estate banker and will contri­bute her in-depth know­ledge and experience both in the market and business environ­ment and in the management of a local branch for an inter­national bank. We are de­lighted that she has agreed to join us.”

Most recently, Birgitta was a branch manager at Aareal Bank in Sweden, where she was also respon­sible for the Nordic region. A native of Sweden, she can look back on over 30 successful years in the real estate industry, during which she held management positions at Swedbank and Catella, among others.
