Rakefet Russak-Aminach Chosen to Head Bank Leumi


The Board of Directors of Bank Leumi elected Rakefet Russak-Aminach, Sunday, to be the bank's next Director-General. An eight-year veteran of the bank, Russak-Aminach was appointed Deputy CEO in charge of the business division last summer by outgoing chief Galia Maor.

The appointment is subject to approval by the Bank of Israel. The Globes business publication reports that former Bank of Israel banks supervisor Roni Hizkiyahu was one of four other contenders for the position.
