Swiss private bank Julius Baer has poached Yvonne Suter from Credit Suisse to serve as its new head of corporate sustainability and responsible investment (CSRI).

Suter assumes the new responsibility immediately and reports to the CEO Office as well as the bank’s sustainability board.

Her stint at Credit Suisse started in 2005. She most recently served as the bank’s head of sustainable investment, a position she held for five years.

Currently, she has been tasked with building the CSRI strategy of Julius Baer.

Referring to Suter, Julius Baer CEO Philipp Rickenbacher said: “Thanks to her comprehensive knowledge and network, as well as her many years of experience, she has all the prerequisites for further developing Julius Baer in the areas of sustainability and responsible investment and expanding the Bank’s activities.

“This will further enable us to meet the ever-increasing demands in all aspects of sustainability: economic, social, as well as environmental.”
