Harford currently serves as the head of investments at UBS Asset Management. Before joining UBS, Harford spent 24 years at Citigroup.
Group COO Sabine Keller-Busse will assume the EMEA president role, in addition to her existing responsibility. Previously, she too worked at Credit Suisse.
Koerner will remain as a senior adviser to UBS group CEO Sergio Ermotti until at least 31 March 2020.
Ermotti stated: “I congratulate Sabine on the expansion of her role. And I’m looking forward to having Suni and Iqbal join the Group Executive Board.
“Both of them bring strong leadership and people skills along with a track record of successful execution. They are great additions to the team and will help us drive sustainable growth and profitability for UBS.”
