ZURICH, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Credit Suisse’s head of private and wealth management clients for Switzerland, Christoph Brunner, will leave the Zurich-based bank, a spokesman said on Tuesday.
“We can confirm that he will leave the bank, but as soon as a successor is found,” a spokesman for Credit Suisse, Switzerland’s second biggest bank, said.
The news was first reported by Swiss newspaper Finanz und Wirtschaft.
Brunner’s planned departure follows a host of changes at Credit Suisse under new Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam.
The bank said last month it planned to raise 6 billion Swiss francs ($6.06 billion) from investors, trim its investment bank and cut jobs.
Thiam has also made several additions to Credit Suisse’s top management. ($1 = 0.9909 Swiss francs) (Reporting by Joshua Franklin; editing by Adrian Croft)
