Credit Suisse confirms new Australian CEO

Credit Suisse has announced the appointment of a senior banker from Deutsche Bank in Hong Kong as the CEO of its Australian business. 

Credit Suisse has revealed that Richard Gibb has been chosen to lead the group’s Australian operations, effective from October 2019.
 
Mr Gibb joins Credit Suisse from Deutsche Bank where he has worked for the past 10 years, most recently as head of corporate finance, Asia Pacific, based in Hong Kong. Prior to that, he was the bank’s global head of financial institutions, based in New York.

Mr Gibb has more than 30 years of experience in investment banking senior leadership roles across Hong Kong, New York and Sydney, and has worked for Merrill Lynch, Bankers Trust and Westpac. 

As CEO of Australia, he will lead the Australian franchise across investment banking and capital markets, private banking, markets and financing, driving the business and client strategy to maximise profitability, to harness business opportunities and grow the business.

Mr Gibb will also focus on maintaining a strong corporate governance framework and regulatory relationships in Australia.
