  • Due to this issue, the bank announced a restructuring plan in December. It will cut ~3,000 jobs.
  • On January 23, 2016, UniCredit’s central and eastern Europe business (EZU) head Carlo Vivaldi will be leaving Vienna for Milan.
  • His departure will coincide with the expiry of a contract keeping UniCredit’s central and eastern Europe business in Vienna.
