ZURICH Dec 5 UBS said on Tuesday SAP
executive Hubertus Kuelps will take over as
communications and branding head on Jan. 1, the second
high-profile move in the unit in a month.
Kuelps, who will report to the Swiss bank's operating chief
Ulrich Koerner, replaces Michael Willi, who is leaving UBS after
20 years to take on an undisclosed role outside the
Kuelps' appointment comes five weeks after Stefan Nuenlist
took over Swiss communications from Peter Hartmeier, an
influential former editor of Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger.
Kuelps' job means he will be a standing guest at meetings of
the Swiss bank's 12-person top management board.
