Julius Baer appoints Gabriele Odone as Market Head Geneva
Julius Baer, the leading Swiss private banking group, announces management changes in its home market Switzerland: Gabriele Odone, current Head Special Clients, has been appointed as Market Head Geneva as of 1 September 2014. His predecessor Olivier Baudry will become Senior Client Executive and remain member of the Region’s Executive Committee, being based in Geneva. Both will report directly to Region Head Giovanni M.S. Flury and remain members of the Executive Committee Switzerland.
Gabriele Odone, who joined Julius Baer in 2010 during the acquisition phase of ING Bank
(Switzerland) Ltd., has successfully led the Special Clients team in Region Switzerland. In addition,
he was interim Market Head Vaud-Valais from March 2013 until March 2014. Gabriele Odone can
look back on more than 20 years of experience in private banking with a strong regional focus on
the French-speaking part of Switzerland and Italy.
Olivier Baudry has been with Julius Baer since October 2009, being responsible for the Geneva
Market. During this time he has successfully developed the local positioning and offering, growing
the asset base and shaping the Bank’s footprint and brand in this important market. His new role as
Senior Client Executive will be focused on acquiring and serving key clients.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Gabriele and Olivier for their strong
commitment and valuable contribution in the past years and look forward to shaping the successful
future of our Region Switzerland together,” commented Giovanni M.S. Flury.
