Maor says no to Hapoalim CEO job, shareholders hold out hope

Should Maor agree, an acting CEO would cover the nine month period of her cooling off period

President and CEO of Bank Leumi, Galia Maor, yesterday told controlling shareholders in Bank Hapoalim she had no intention to accept the CEO position they had offered her, replacing current CEO Amiram Sivan, Yedioth Ahronoth reports.

Top executives at the bank said yesterday that the controlling shareholders of the bank, the Arison-Dankner group, are still hoping to convince Maor, and are trying to convince her to accept the appointment.

If she is appointed, Moshe Amit, vice chairman of Bank Hapoalim, will be appointed acting CEO until Maor's mandatory nine-month cooling off period ends.
