Zurich – Postfinans CEO Hansruedi Kong becomes new CEO of Raiffeisen. This was announced on Monday in an industrial blog "Inside Paradeplatz", speaking about "a person who is affiliated with Raiffeisen's headquarters."
Spokespeakers from Raiffeisen and Postfinance did not want to comment on the AVP message. "We do not comment on speculation," the two institutions said.
15 years in Postfinance
Kong with berries 1966 is a veteran of Postfanza. For more than 15 years, she has been working in a subsidiary of the Swiss Post. From the beginning of 2012 he was the director.
Postfinance is currently a major topic in politics. The Federal Council wants to partially privatize the institute. In the future, Post offices should also be allowed to approve loans and mortgages. The reason for this proposal is a collapse of return.
At the end of August, post-financing declined by two-thirds in the first half of 2018. The main reason the company gave was a difficulty in the interest of doing business.
That's why Postfinans wants to cut down on the job. In June, it was announced that around 500 jobs would be lost by the end of 2020.
After Gisele's resignation
Last Friday, Executive Director of Raiffeisen Patrick Gisel resigned immediately after various media reported a love affair between him and member of the retired member of Raiffeisen.
The Board of Directors and Gisele agreed to present a planned withdrawal by the end of the year in order to complete a public discussion about their person and enable Raiffeisen to focus on the challenges ahead of us, he said.
Compared to Sunday's press, the new president of Raiffeisen Gui Lachappelle said he was "a bunch of candidates on the list" for the succession of Gisele.
The new boss should be appointed in his opinion before the end of the year. He also added that the new owner has ever led the bank and has to make a sales experience. "And of course, he must bring integrity," he said, referring to the Vincenz affair. (AVP / mc / ps)
