In his new capacity, Dubey will oversee the two branches in Romandie, which includes offices in Geneva and Lausanne, from 1 November 2017 onwards.
Speaking to Citywire Switzerland, president and CEO of PKB Umberto Trabaldo Togna confirmed that Dubey will report to PKB’s head of private banking and executive vice president, Ettore Bonsignore.
In his new position, Dubey will work with the Geneva branch manager and senior vice president, Gennaro Caracciolo di Vietri.
