Alex W. Widmer, the chief executive officer of Bank Julius Baer, has passed away unexpectedly.
Widmer died overnight on Wednesday, aged just 52.
He joined the bank three years ago as a member of the Group Executive Board, and the Private Banking division’s chief executive officer.
Late last year he was promoted to become CEO for Bank Julius Baer, and as such set the bank on a strong and successful footing.
Chairman of the Board of Directors, Raymond J. Baer, has paid tribute to the man he described as a dear friend, a good colleague and a charismatic leader.
The bank’s leadership will be assumed by Hans de Gier, formerly CEO of the Julius Baer Group until September.
