The CaixaBank logo crowns the Kio tower that housed the Bankia headquarters since last Saturday, and throughout the weekend the logos of the most emblematic buildings of the dissolved entity were replaced, while in the next fifteen days it will begin to change the brand in the offices.
This last process is expected to be finalized in June or July, as advanced yesterday by the president of the new CaixaBank, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri, at a press conference held after the effectiveness of the legal merger.
“Today Bankia disappears, it is absolutely true, a nine-year stage in which we have worked a lot is ending, there has been an extraordinary transformation,” he stressed.
The Kio towers, built between 1990 and 1996, already housed the headquarters of Caja Madrid, being one of them acquired by the entity, and they became that of Bankia as of 2010.
The merger between Bankia and CaixaBank became official this Friday with the registration of the new entity in the Mercantile Registry, as planned since September.
However, the new CaixaBank has ensured that customer operations will practically not change, until the migration of each entity’s operating platform, in a process that it plans to carry out before the end of the year.
