Christian Bluhm has decided to continue in his post as group chief risk officer and member of the group executive board for the foreseeable future due to the anticipated acquisition of Credit Suisse.
As a result, the handover to Damian Vogel, which was initially set for May 1st, has been pushed back.
Vogel has been appointed group risk control head of integration.
In this role, he will be in charge of risk control integration operations and identifying the best practicable structure for the firm’s integrated group risk control function.
Group chief executive officer Sergio P. Ermotti said: “Having both senior risk leaders actively engaged will help ensure that we’re well prepared and appropriately set up in an area that is crucial for our future success. I want to thank Christian for his readiness to continue in his role as Group Chief Risk Officer and Damian for his significant efforts in leading our integration efforts and designing our future risk function.”
