In his new role as head Intermediaries & Global Custody, Rickenbacher will assume international responsibility for this B2B segment, developing a consistent strategy and tailored offering focusing on its specific needs and requirements.

In 2016 he was appointed to the Bank’s Executive Board and to his current role as Head Advisory Solutions.
As of 1 January 2019, Nicolas de Skowronski will succeed Philipp Rickenbacher as head Advisory Solutions and become a member of the Bank’s Executive Board. De Skowronski joined Julius Baer in 2005, with the Bank’s acquisition of Ferrier Lullin & Cie SA. Since then, he has served as head Investment Advisory and chief of Staff, and lately as head Advisory Operations and Development as well as deputy head Advisory Solutions. Over the past three years, he has been instrumental in developing and implementing Julius Baer’s advisory offering, its approach towards holistic advice and the related digitalisation efforts.
