Bellevue Group strengthens its wealth management expertise:
Thomas Pixner to become the new CEO of Bank am Bellevue -
Veit de Maddalena to be proposed for election to the Board of Directors
 

Over the past three years Bellevue Group has enhanced its profile as an asset
and wealth manager with broad expertise and a wide range of investment products.
After restructuring Bank am Bellevue and discontinuing the Brokerage and
Corporate Finance operations, steps are now being taken to further strengthen
Bellevue Group's investment competencies. The Board of Directors has appointed
Thomas Pixner CEO of Bank am Bellevue and a member of the Executive Board of
Bellevue Group, effective February 1, 2018 at the latest. In addition, Veit de
Maddalena will be proposed for election to the Board of Directors at the Annual
General Meeting in March 2018. Both have many years of experience in the wealth
management business and stellar track records.
 

Thomas Pixner (55) has held various executive positions in international wealth
management for more than 20 years. Since 2007, Thomas Pixner has served as a
member of the Executive Committee Wealth Management & Trust and Head Investments
Switzerland of Rothschild Bank AG, Zurich. Before that he headed the Private
Banking operations of VP Bank AG in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. He will lead Bank am
Bellevue as CEO from February 1, 2018 at the latest and advance the growth of
the wealth management business for entrepreneurial private clients in
collaboration with the existing teams.

André Rüegg, CEO of Bellevue Group, comments: "Thomas Pixner is an
internationally experienced wealth management expert. As CEO, he will further
strengthen the new positioning of the wealth management franchise in a joint
effort with the already successful operational team headed by Christian Zenker.
With his many years of experience and valued competency, Thomas Pixner will be
instrumental in guiding the bank through its next stage of development and
accelerating the ongoing extension of our services."

Thomas Blum (42) is also joining the team as Senior Client Advisor. He is a
talented client advisor with more than 15 years of experience in working with an
international clientele, primarily at Rothschild Bank AG, Zurich and, before
that, at VP Bank in Vaduz.

Given the stronger focus on the asset and wealth management business, the Board
of Directors will also be strengthened with the election of Veit de Maddalena
(50) as a new director at the Annual General Meeting in 2018. Veit de Maddalena
has a deep understanding of the international wealth management business. His
long international career includes various assignments and key positions at
Credit Suisse and, since 2006, at Rothschild & Co. Veit de Maddalena headed for
years the Wealth Management & Trust Division, was a member of the Group
Management Committee of Rothschild & Co. and served as Chief Executive Officer
of Rothschild Bank AG, Zurich. He most recently held the position of Executive
Vice Chairman of Rothschild Bank AG, Zurich.

Thomas von Planta, Chairman of Bellevue Group, comments: "We are pleased to have
Veit de Maddalena help guide the further development of Bellevue Group. His
extensive knowledge of the international wealth management business will be of
great benefit in strengthening Bellevue Group's new strategic profile."

Bellevue Group will publish its half-year results for 2017 on July 28, 2017.
