Swisscard reports on upcoming change of CEO
CEO Florence Schnydrig Moser has decided to take on a new professional challenge outside Swisscard. CFO Wilhelm Rohde will manage the credit card company Swisscard on an interim basis until a definitive successor is found.
Florence Schnydrig has been CEO of Swisscard for two years. During this time, she prioritized investments in technologies that would also bring tangible additional benefits to customers in light of the ongoing digitization process. Together with the Executive Board, she further developed Swisscard’s strategy and vision and promoted the team spirit across all positions as well as the development of women in management positions.
Wilhelm Rohde is taking over the management of Swisscard as temporary CEO, in addition to his role as CFO. Before switching to Swisscard Chief Financial Officer in the fall of 2018, Wilhelm Rohde worked for American Express for many years in various positions in London, Sydney, New York and Singapore.
Rafael Marquez, President of the Swisscard Board of Managing Officers, says: "During her time at Swisscard, Florence Schnydrig has set an important agenda for our company’s strategy and implemented a number of forward-looking projects. On the basis of her strong leadership skills, she and her team have been able to significantly develop the vision and corporate culture. We would like to sincerely thank Florence for her great commitment to Swisscard and wish her all the best in her new role."
