The cantonal bank of Ticino, Banca dello Stato del Cantone Ticino, has appointed the former CEO of Banca del Gottardo, Luca Soncini, to its board of directors.
Soncini has joined the board six months on from the announcement of his departure from private banking firm PKB, where he served as CFO and as a member of the executive board.
In March 2017, Soncini voiced his plans to leave the group in the second half of 2017 after almost 10 years with the group. In his place, Fabrizio Cerutti took over as CRO and a board member.
Soncini previously served as group head of private banking at Banca del Gottardo in Lugano, where he had worked for 20 years.
BancaStato's board of directors is led by Bernardino Bulla, who took over the position in July 2017 after Fulvio Pelli announced his departure.
