The 42-year old holder of a degree in political science will be responsible for external and internal communi­cation and will act as the bank's press spokes­person. He is assuming this role from Wolfgang Kuß, who is entering retire­ment. Schweitzer will report to Dr. Sven Matthiesen, the General Manager of Helaba's Central Staff & Group Strategy Division.

"Mr Schweitzer is a communi­cations professional with a wealth of experience in many different sectors and we are honoured to have him on board. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mr Kuß, who has played a leading role in successfully shaping Corporate Communi­cation at our bank for almost 25 years", commented Herbert Hans Grüntker, the Chairman of Helaba's Board of Managing Directors, on the new appointment.

The PR expert brings more than 17 years of professional experience in the communi­cation industry with him and specialises in strategic corporate communi­cation as well as digital public and media relations.
