Global wealth management platform FNZ has appointed Renata Mrazova (pictured) as group chief people officer, based in Prague.
Mrazova will be part of the global leadership team and will focus on developing FNZ’s long-term people strategy, ensuring that it continues to build the structure, talent and capabilities needed.
She was previously group chief people officer at consumer finance provider Home Credit International, where she successfully implemented a range of people management improvements around compensation, evaluation, HR digitisation, learning and development.
Mrazova transitioned into people management when she was promoted from NN’s chief executive officer (CEO) for the Czech and Slovak Republic to global head of HR. Prior to this, she held various senior positions including chief financial officer (CFO) and CEO at ING Group for the Czech and Slovak Republic, CEO at Direct Pojistovna, as well as CFO at Astra, where she coordinated the merger with British Zeneca.
Mrazova co-founded Impact and Inspire, a network dedicated to improving inclusion and diversity through mentoring, coaching, workshops, events and conferences. Among others, she was awarded the Stanton Chase Diversity Award in 2019 for her contribution to diversity and inclusion.
Mrazova said: “I am thrilled to be joining the business at this point in its journey. We have a very exciting people, culture, and transformation agenda ahead of us, and I’m looking forward to the new challenge, contributing to FNZ’s future growth and making an impact.”
Adrian Durham, CEO of FNZ Group, added: “I am delighted to welcome Renata to FNZ. She’s a hugely respected HR leader with extensive experience and, with her depth of business and financial market knowledge, is perfectly positioned to support FNZ as we work together to deliver ever greater value to our colleagues and customers around the world as we continue our mission of opening up wealth.”
