Ex-Footballer To Take Over Troubled Bank

Former Croatian football international Dario Simic is to be named on the Supervisory Board of troubled Karlovacka Bank in Croatia after an AGM on Thursday saw five-members of the previous board resign.

Karlovacka Bank recently hit the headlines in Croatia after majority owner Sandi Sola was arrested by police accused of embezzling more than 10 million euros. Simic, who is a shareholder in the bank with just under 4%, will be named on the board at the next meeting.

“I should have been named on the Supervisory Board, but it was decided that because of some legal matters that decision is postponed till the next board meeting, when I will become the fifth member,” said Simic to Jutarnji list after yesterday’s meeting.

Another famous face was also in attendance at yesterday’s meeting in Karlovac, former Wimbledon tennis champion Goran Ivanisevic. Ivanisevic was a 3.36% shareholder in the bank until he recently transferred that to his wife Tatjana.
