Stéphane Chrétien (pictured) has been appointed as new chief executive officer Quilvest (Switzerland) in Zurich, effective since 1 April 2018.
He succeeds Philippe Monti, who retired after a 12-year tenure with the firm and who will join its board of directors.
Quilvest Wealth Management (QWM) said Chrétien’s appointment forms part of a farsighted succession planning to secure the long-term leadership of the company.

Marc Hoffman, CEO of QWM, said: “We are very pleased to have Stéphane Chrétien taking over as CEO of Quilvest (Switzerland). Stéphane is a very experienced and acknowledged wealth management professional with a profound knowledge of the industry and of the comprehensive needs of our clients.
“His appointment ensures continuity in our successful strategy and our ambition to be one of the leading partners for wealth management and family offices services in Switzerland.”
Hoffman also lauded former Quilvest’s Swiss CEO Monti for his contribution to the firm during his 12-year stint with Quilvest (Switzerland).
