SIX Swiss Exchange has appointed Christoph Landis as the new division CEO.
The board of directors of SIX appointed Landis to the new role. The 56-year-old has 23 years of experience in various technology-related positions within the Swiss exchange. Landis was appointed to the management committee of SIX Swiss Exchange (then SWX) in 2003 and has been responsible for the operations unit since 2010, becoming deputy division CEO in 2012.
Landis replaces Christian Katz, who left SIX in April due to what was described by the firm as, "diverging views on the strategic direction and on the further development of the business area Swiss Exchange."
"With Christoph Landis we have a Division CEO who is experienced and has strong leadership qualities, who is highly familiar with the stock-exchange business, and who has made a crucial contribution to the successful positioning and development of SIX Swiss Exchange," says Urs Rüegsegger, Group CEO SIX. "In addition, he has already demonstrated on many occasions that he fits into the group executive board extremely well."
