Bank Linth is striving to increase its focus on comprehensive customer consultancy services, according to a press release issued by the bank, in which Liechtensteinische Landesbank holds a 75 percent stake. To this end, the bank is establishing a new Customers business unit, where all customer-related functions will be bundled, the press release explains further.
The private and corporate clients segments are also to be integrated in the new business unit. Up to now, they had reported directly to the CEO of Bank Linth, David Sarasin. The current Head of Private Banking and Investment Business, Luc Schuurmans, will assume responsibility for managing the new business unit. As part of his new responsibilities, Schuurmans will also be appointed Deputy CEO of Bank Linth.
“With these changes, we are placing a strong focus on the needs of our customers also in organisational terms”, comments Urs Müller, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Bank Linth, in the press release. He adds: “The new structure is a key step in strengthening collaborations across all departments and exploiting synergies more efficiently – all in the spirit of our bank of the future”.
