He joins the services provider from Strategy&, where he latterly was Managing Director of the Swiss organisation and a partner in the Financial Services practice.

It’s fair to say now that I’m a banker and much work lies ahead. Digital has claimed center stage in the industry, and I’m much looking forward to embracing my new role.”
