Resolute will be hosting the 2023 Resolute Advisors MENA Restructuring Forum at the Ritz Carlton DIFC in Dubai on Tuesday 16 May. The event will be a chance to discuss broader risk and restructuring challenges and trends in an informal forum with professionals from banks across the Gulf Region.
Christos Megalou, Chief Executive Officer of Piraeus Bank, will be joining as Keynote Speaker and Angus Dodd, Formerly Co-Head of European Real Estate, Lone Star Funds & CEO of Quintain Limited, as guest speaker.
Under Christos’s stewardship, Piraeus Bank, the leading Systemic Bank in Greece, has moved from being a highly challenged institution with an NPL ratio of more than 40%, to a position of revitalised market leadership focusing on capturing the strategic opportunities present in its target markets. Christos will be discussing how Piraeus Bank achieved this turnaround.
