Zurich, 2 February 2023 – The Board of Directors of Julius Baer Group Ltd. will propose Juerg Hunziker for election as new member of the Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on 13 April 2023.

All other current members of the Board of Directors, which will newly consist of nine members, will stand for re-election at the upcoming AGM.

With their long-standing commitment and experience, they have provided important insights and significantly supported our Board. We wish them both all the best in their future endeavours.”

In 2022, he retired as Senior Advisor to the Group Executive Board from Avaloq, a Switzerland-based global leader in digital banking solutions, where he was Group CEO from 2018 to 2021 and served as Deputy CEO from 2016 to 2017.
