Thorsten Hartmann to become new Head of Julius Baer’s Branch in Basel




Bank Julius Baer appoints Thorsten Hartmann as its new Head of the branch in Basel, effective 1 April 2022.

Basel / Zurich, 25 October 2021 – Thorsten Hartmann will join Bank Julius Baer on 1 February 2022 and as of 1 April 2022, he will take over as Head of the Julius Baer branch in Basel. He will replace Claude Scharowski, who has led the Bank’s Basel office with great success since its opening in 2000. Claude Scharowski has decided to focus on client advisory services until his retirement in 2024, while gradually reducing his working hours.

Thorsten Hartmann brings with him long-standing experience in the financial sector and in private banking. He worked in various functions at Credit Suisse for over 17 years, mostly in the Basel region. From 2013 to 2020, he was Head of Private Banking HNWI Basel and most recently Head of HNWI Northwestern Switzerland. Thorsten Hartmann holds a degree in economics and a CAS in Digital Finance.

Gilles Stuck, designated Head Market Switzerland Julius Baer, says: “Claude Scharowski can look back on an extremely successful career and has made a significant contribution to the successful positioning of Julius Baer in Basel over the past two decades. We thank him for his contributions and look forward to working with him in the years to come. With Thorsten Hartmann, we have been able to appoint an excellent successor to the position of branch head. We are convinced that his profound knowledge, vast experience, and his local networking will prove very valuable in further developing our presence in Basel."
