Last month, the group announced the new management structure and as a result announced four new CEOs to spearhead the company’s growth. The group appointed Francesco De Ferrari as CEO of the group’s wealth management division and named as interim CEO of Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region. Christian Meissner, the CEO of the investment bank division, was appointed as CEO of the Americas region. Helman Sitohang was appointed as the CEO of the Asia-Pacific region while Andre Helfenstein was named as the CEO of the Switzerland region.

As of January 1 2022, the group organized itself into four business divisions, namely, asset management, wealth management, investment bank, and Swiss bank, and four geographic regions such as Asia-pacific, EMEA, Americas, and Switzerland. The aforementioned developments followed Credit Suisse’s plans to curb investment banking and shift towards wealth management.
