Synpulse Management Consulting, a European-origin consulting firm dedicated to the financial services industry, has appointed two new partners.

Both Marcel Loetscher and Daniele Abbruzzese have been promoted internally. The latter advisor has been with the international consulting firm for nine years, growing the ranks from consultant to now partner.

Abbruzzese started his consulting career in 2011 at Synpulse in Zurich, after completing his studies in electrical engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and at Imperial College in London. After working a few years in the firm’s Zurich office, he relocated to Geneva to setup Synpulse’s second Swiss office. Today Abbruzzese heads the firm’s growing business in French-speaking Switzerland.

His promotion now sees him take the helm of Synpulse’s banking practice throughout Switzerland. Personally, he advises clients in the private banking and wealth management sectors, with a focus on business and technology transformations, risk management and regulatory challenges. Abbruzzese also has an international mandate – he is a member of Synpulse’s global banking operational excellence management team.

Meanwhile, in the United States, Marcel Loetscher has been promoted to partner. Synpulse Management Consulting launched in the US in 2014 with a focus on the insurance sector, and two years later the consultancy extended its offering to also support commercial and retail banks, and asset managers. 

Loetscher has been with Synpulse in the US since the very start, having previously worked for Swiss airline Swiss, the Wealth Management arm of UBS, and as a consultant for Synpulse in Switzerland (then Solution Providers) in his first spell at the firm. 

He leads cross-functional teams that help large to mid-size insurance and reinsurance companies to develop into more efficient, scalable digital enterprises, as well as to improve their profits, reduce costs, and deliver value to customers and shareholders. In addition to his US role, he is globally responsible for the Enterprise Architecture and Augmented Intelligence practices.

The duo grow Synpulse’s leadership team to fourteen partners, led by chief executive officer Christoph Nützenadel. Globally, the privately-held management consulting firm has around 480 consultants and staff working from 13 offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
