Through the new specialized direction, OTP Bank aims to support the business environment and liberal professions with banking products and solutions adapted to the specific needs and size of this type of entrepreneurial companies, which usually do not have sufficient own resources to support the proper development of the business, and which are also the most affected in times of economic downturn nation-wide.

The Micro Department will operate within the Retail Division, coordinated by Roxana Hidan, Deputy General Manager, Retail Division, and the position of Director of the Department rests with Radu Râmbeț.

„The new development of OTP Bank services, by launching the Micro Department, is part of our orientation towards the entrepreneurial environment and supporting the activity of this segment of companies of high importance at national level. It is also a new step in the bank’s development strategy for the next five years – Apollo, announced last year, through which, together with a dedicated team and customized products, we will focus on small companies in Romania,”
