Former Ramp General Counsel Artur Bilski has joined Poland's Alior Bank as its new Head of Legal.

In his new role, Bilski will be in charge of all legal affairs related to corporate and investment banking as well as IT, fintech, and innovations. He joined Ramp in 2018 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 2018). He spent two previous years with Hogan Lovells, where he worked, among other projects, on the securitization of lease receivables by Europejski Fundusz Leasingowy (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 10, 2017) and on the establishment by mBank Hipoteczny S.A. of a mortgage-covered bonds program (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on August 7, 2017). 

Before joining Hogan Lovells in 2016 he spent two and a half years with Clifford Chance, where, among other things, he advised Arctic Paper S.A. and its subsidiaries in Poland and Sweden on the refinancing of their indebtedness (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 9, 2016).

From 2012-2014 he was an analyst in the ECM & Corporate Finance Department of PKO Bank Polski.

Bilski commented for CEE Legal Matters that the main reason for change is that he would like to try his "luck as a manager" and develop his leadership skills. He added: "I will still be deeply involved in new technologies and the Fintech sector; it is also worth noting that Alior Bank is clearly one of the leaders in the industry, known for its disruptive approach and the first bank to use a public blockchain for a direct customer service solution." Talking about his previous role, he said: "There’s a big part of me that’s sad to be saying goodbye to this amazing project and people that I call friends"
