The agreement for the transfer and development of the property that will house the new offices of the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank at Thessaloniki's west entrance was signed yesterday.

The ceremony took place in a central hotel in Thessaloniki, in the presence of government officials, members of the diplomatic corps, Bank officials and media representatives.

The CEO of DIMAND said in his speech: “The signing of this agreement marks an important moment for us at Dimand. It is a great honor and pleasure to undertake the development of the new privately-owned offices of the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank. Based in Thessaloniki, the Black Sea Bank plays an extremely important role in the development of business in its 11 member-states and the choice to relocate to the heart of the city’s Western Entrance regeneration area comes at a time when a historic renaissance is taking place. A renaissance that has long been announced by the Prime Minister himself, as well as actively supported by the Region of Central Macedonia and the Municipality of Thessaloniki. In the same area, in addition to Dimand’s project to create the first large-scale sustainable business park, HUB26, and the redevelopment of the historic former FIX brewery, the Holocaust Museum and the new park on the HRO (Hellenic Railways Organization) site will soon begin. The Bank’s new office building will be located in an area that will gain added value in the near future, thanks to all these redevelopments and major projects that are being implemented. Our aim is to contribute to the development of the regions through urban regeneration, revitalizing economically and socially dead areas. We greatly appreciate the trust shown by the Bank and look forward to working with passion and commitment to create an advanced work environment that serves the needs of the Bank and its executives.”

In his statement, Dr. Serhat Köksal, President of the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank, said: “Today marks a new chapter for the Black Sea Bank as we lay the foundations for our future. Our new offices, which will be completed in spring 2025, just over 25 years since our establishment, will facilitate the expansion of our operations, strengthen our presence and improve the Bank’s efficiency and effectiveness across the entire Black Sea region.”
