Notenstein La Roche appoints new CEO as Künzi exits

Notenstein La Roche appoints new CEO as Künzi exits

Notenstein La Roche has appointed Patrick Fürer as CEO, the bank has announced.

He will start in his new role on 23 October, replacing Adrian Künzi, who spent six years at the bank.

Fürer is currently CFO/COO at Notenstein La Roche and has been in this role since July 2017.

Prior to that he used to work as COO and later CEO at Morgan Stanley Switzerland. Previously he was in charge of the settlement and IT department at Raiffeisen Group, where he also was a member of the executive board.

Silvio Hutterli, general counsel at Notenstein La Roche, will succeed Patrick Fürer as business area head of finance on an interim basis.

Commenting on the new CEO chairman of the board Patrick Gisel said:

‘Continuity is paramount for us. I am therefore very pleased that we were able to recruit Patrick Fürer for this function. In just a few months he has been able to gain the trust of the employees, the executive board and the board of directors.’

This is one of the most recent senior management changes at the bank. Earlier in July head of asset management Roger Ganz left for Zurich-based wealth manager Clarus Capital.

In May 2017 Fabian Dori, who was head of offering, portfolio management and advisory, also exited the bank to later assume the role of quantitative strategist at Aquila Group.

These moves were preceeded by the earlier departure of Werner Kruesi, who was responsible for the bank's business in eastern Switzerland, and head of Zurich Silvan Schriber, who departed at the end of 2016.
