Before joining the Swiss bank he worked at Bank of America’s spot-trading desk. He left the firm after four and a half years.
The move comes at a time when Credit Suisse has been pressured to optimize its operations. The company has committed to float its stake in Credit Suisse Switzerland, which was recently established as a separate entity.
The estimated value of the float is close to CHF 5 billion ($4.95 billion) with the plan for a float being touted as one of the biggest offerings in Europe next year.
