Argo Kiltsmann, who has previously worked not only in Bigbank but also in SEB Pank, has become the fourth member of the management board of Bigbank AS. His area of responsibility on the board will be financial management. Continuing as the other three members of the board are Martin Länts (chairman), Sven Raba and Mart Veskimägi.
“Above all else, we need Argo’s support on the management board so that we can fulfil our ambitious strategic goals,” said Länts. “In addition to everything else he’s achieved in the nine years he’s worked for Bigbank, Argo’s been one of the chief architects in the development of the financial system for our new IT system, Nest. I’m really glad the board’s gaining a long-standing Bigbank employee and an experienced financial manager.”
Kiltsmann says that he is grateful for the opportunity he is being afforded. “And also for the trust that’s being extended to me, because I’m sure the biggest challenges in my career still lie ahead of me,” he said. “I’ve been given the chance to really develop professionally within one of the biggest Estonian-owned companies there is, and I’ll definitely take the new challenges I face seriously. I’m convinced I can make a significant contribution to the bank’s development.”
Kiltsmann graduated from the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Tartu with a BA in Company Finance. He has led the Management Accounting Department in Bigbank and has served as its Head of Finance since September 2017. From 2008-2012 he was a credit analyst with SEB Pank.
