The EBA informed the Chair of the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON), Roberto Gualtieri, about its decision, in line with the EBA Regulation.
José Manuel Campa, who currently serves as Global Head of Regulatory Affairs at Santander, will be invited by the ECON Committee to a public hearing. Subject to objection by the European Parliament within one month, Mr Campa will succeed Andrea Enria as the new Chairperson of the EBA and will serve for a renewable five-year term.
