Romeo Lacher will step down from the SIX Board of Directors at the 2020 Annual General Meeting at the latest. As announced in January 2019, he will be proposed to the shareholders of the Julius Baer Group as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors in April 2019. In the medium term, he intends to concentrate on this function and will hand over the SIX Presidium into new hands. The search for a successor will be initiated shortly.
Until his departure, Romeo Lacher will continue to accompany the transformation of SIX, which is already at an advanced stage. Last year, SIX realigned itself strategically and organizationally in order to actively advance the further development of the financial market infrastructure. Romeo Lacher has been a member of the Board of Directors of SIX since the beginning of 2008 and has been its Chairman since the beginning of 2017.
