On 31 January 2023 Marek Łazarz resigned from the position of Member of the Management Board of Millennium Leasing sp. z o.o. At the same time, the General Meeting of Shareholders of Millennium Leasing sp. z o.o. appointed Dorota Kotelska as a Member of the Management Board. The Management Board of Millennium Leasing will perform its duties in a four-member composition, in which Marcin Balicki as Chairman of the Management Board, Agnieszka Kozakiewicz-Pietrzak and Piotr Maj as Members of the Management Board remain in their functions.

I would like to thank Marek for his commitment to the Company's affairs so far. His substantive knowledge and personal qualities made him a teacher, support and mentor for many years. I am glad that he is staying with us and will supervise the AML area on behalf of the Management Board, but also support the entire organisation in those areas where his knowledge and experience will be helpful in the implementation of business tasks said Andrzej Gliński, Member of the Management Board of Bank Millennium S.A. and Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Millennium Leasing sp. z o.o..

- Almost twenty years of participation in the work of the Management Board of Millennium Leasing was an extremely intense, challenging and inspiring period for me. I had the honour of building this organisation and working with wonderful, competent colleagues for whom the company and its people were very important, and for that I thank you all very much. The experience gained while performing the function of Member of the Management Board is invaluable. I wish my colleagues from the Board continued success in leading the company, especially in this challenging time said Marek Łazarz, Millennium Leasing sp. z o.o.

Dorota Kotelska, appointed on 1 February 2023, has been associated with the Bank Millennium Group for 23 years. Until now, she was the Director of the Risk Management Department. Dorota Kotelska is a graduate of the Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Production Engineering. For over 23 years she has been dealing with credit risk in the Millennium Leasing, and for 20 years – she has held managerial positions in the area of credit risk management. She is the Deputy Chair of the Millennium Leasing Credit Committee and closely cooperates with relevant organisational units of the risk division of Bank Millennium S.A.

- Despite unfavourable external circumstances, such as rising interest rates, inflation and continued uncertainty in the economy, our challenge remains to maintain a balanced nature of growth: on the one hand, the acquisition of new customers, and on the other, to maintain the downward trend in the cost of risk. I am convinced that Dorota's competence and experience will allow us to achieve the expected goals in this area, and the structure of the Management Board, in which there is a place for the head of the Risk Management Department, properly reflects the importance of the risk area in the management of the Company said Marcin Balicki, Chairman of the Management Board of Millennium Leasing Sp. z o.o.

- The nomination for the position of Member of the Management Board is a great recognition and distinction for me. I am glad that I will be able to use my previous experience working for the organisation in a new role, but my main area of activity remains unchanged - ensuring safe growth through appropriate shaping of credit policy, taking care of the quality of the leasing portfolio and optimising the credit process - commented Dorota Kotelska, Member of the Management Board of Millennium Leasing Sp. z o.o.
