Wealth management IT firm Avaloq has added three new members to its group executive board.
Chris Beukers is now regional manager Asia Pacific, Tobias Unger is regional manager Switzerland and Liechtenstein, and Brian Hurdis is chief service delivery officer.
Mr Beukers most recently worked at Pactera International and Mr Unger at Falcon Private Bank.
“I would like to extend a warm welcome to Chris, Tobias and Brian as new members of the group executive board, and I look forward to working with the new leadership team,” said Juerg Hunziker, group chief executive.
“This expert team, together with the talented Avaloq workforce and new organisational setup in place, will continue to execute the vision of our chairman Francisco Fernandez to drive future growth. We will be focusing on standardisation and will bring banking to the next level of industrialisation while we continue to innovate and deliver highest quality to our customers.”
Mr Hunziker became group chief executive recently, replacing Mr Fernandez, following global private equity firm Warburg Pincus increasing its stake in Avaloq, having acquired Raiffeisen Switzerland’s 10 percent stake, taking its total stake to 45 percent.
Headquartered in Switzerland, Avaloq has branches in Berlin, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Leipzig, London, Lugano, Luxemboug, Madrid, Manila, Nyon, Paris, Singapore, Sydney and Zurich.
