On 1 January 2021, Sabrina Kensy (38) took on the role of Divisional Board Member leading Commerzbank’s corporate clients business in the Central/East market region. In this role, she is responsible for the division in the five eastern federal states and Berlin, as well as in Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. She succeeds Michael Kotzbauer, who has taken over the position of Board Member for Corporate Clients.
In addition to many years of experience, Sabrina Kensy brings along her excellent expertise in all aspects of the corporate clients business.
