Christoph Weber (47), currently Deputy to the CEO of ATAG Asset Management, will join Banca del Gottardo’s Executive Board on 1 March 2007 as Head of Private Banking North. In this function, he will be responsible for managing and expanding the Private Banking business in Switzerland's German and French-speaking regions as well as in Luxembourg.
As a member of the Executive Board of ATAG Asset Management, a subsidiary of Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank, Christoph Weber has been responsible for the former’s private and institutional clients since 2000. He previously held management functions at Zürcher Kantonalbank and Bank Vontobel.
The Private Banking North business area was created as part of the Bank's strategic reorientation and increased focus on Private Banking, and is currently headed on an interim basis by CEO Rolf Aeberli. The Bank thus underscores its declared aim of further expanding its business outside the Canton of Ticino and northern Italy, where it has traditionally enjoyed a strong position. Private Banking North encompasses the branch offices in Zurich, where Banca del Gottardo has been present since 1971, Geneva (since 1991), Lausanne (since 1971) and Luxembourg (since 1980). Christoph Weber will be predominantly based in Zurich.
Rolf Aeberli, CEO of Banca del Gottardo, said, "I am very pleased that we have found such a capable and experienced personality to take over the position of Head of Private Banking North. I am convinced that Christoph Weber, together with our branch managers north of the Gotthard, will make a substantial contribution to our growth."
