Pinto was the first of three Israeli bank CEOs to announce their resignation in recent months. Rakefet Russak-Aminoach, president and CEO of Bank Leumi, announced her retirement two weeks ago after a seven-year tenure, while Lilach Asher-Topilsky, the CEO of Israel Discount Bank Ltd. since 2014, announced her retirement earlier in June.

On Monday, Discount named Uri Levin, the head of its New York division, as its new CEO.
