Credit Suisse has announced a number of changes to its Board of Directors.

The present vice chairman, Hans-Ulrich Doerig, is to be appointed chairman subject to approval at the firm’s AGM in April.

Doerig will succeed the incumbent Walter B. Kielholz, who is relinquishing the post to concentrate his energies on his role as Swiss Re’s chairman.

Kielholz will however stand for re-election to the board as a member without specific duties.

Doerig has paid tribute to Kielholz’s contribution the firm over the last few years, adding that he was pleased prospective new members Andreas Koopmann, Urs Rohner and John Tiner were to stand for the Board.

Andreas Koopmann is CEO of Bobst Group, and John Tinner is ex-CEO of the UK’s FSA and presently CEO of Resolution.

The bank’s chief operating officer and general counsel, Urs Rohner, is to stand for election as vice chairman on a full-time basis.
