July 8, 2019

The Board of Directors of Julius Baer has appointed Philipp Rickenbacher as new CEO, effective September 1, taking over from Bernhard Hodler who will retire from his role and from the Julius Baer Executive Board on August 31.

Rickenbacher is currently Head of Intermediaries & Global Custody of Bank Julius Baer & Co. Prior to that, he was Head Advisory Solutions for two years, responsible for the development of the Bank's advisory approach and of holistic wealth management solutions. He joined Julius Baer in 2004 from McKinsey & Company.

Julius Baer says the appointment is the outcome of the Board's long-term succession planning and that the leadership progression underscores its ambition to anticipate the ongoing secular shifts in the wealth management industry. Hodler will assist Rickenbacher and the Board to ensure a smooth transition into 2020, before pursuing other projects.
