Digital asset banking platform SEBA Bank this week announced a number of additions to its management team.
Mathias Schuetz, current regional head of Avaloq Switzerland and CEO of Avaloq Sourcing (Switzerland and Liechtenstein) AG, has been appointed head of Client and Technology Solutions and member of the Executive Committee as of Oct. 18. Schuetz brings more than 20 years of international experience in digital banking solutions and business development and technology with a focus on B2B.
The Markets and Investments Solutions division will be jointly led by Urs Bernegger and Ritesh Dutta. Philipp Baretta, founding partner of SEBA Bank and current head of Client and Investment Solutions, has decided to retire from his executive role but he will remain closely involved with the company as a strategic advisor.
Alena Nicolai Gwerder has been appointed as CFO and member of the Executive Committee following a term as deputy CFO and head of Finance. She is succeeding David Matter, who has left the company.
“Since receiving a FINMA license in 2019, SEBA Bank has demonstrated sustained growth globally, currently offering its services in 25 markets,” CEO Guido Buehler said. “The changes announced today enable us to maintain this outstanding growth by strengthening our client solutions with scale and durability, as well as ensuring greater access to market liquidity and product development.
I am very delighted that Mathias Schuetz, a unique expert in B2B technology and digital banking solutions, is joining SEBA Bank. He is a proven business leader and well equipped to take our platform to the next level. I am proud that in Alena Nicolai Gwerder, we are able to promote internal talent to the CFO position. Alena has been with SEBA Bank since the foundation of the company. She will be a terrific addition to the Executive Committee.
“I would like to thank Philipp for his contribution to the founding and development of SEBA Bank. Despite his wish to take a step back from day to day operations, his willingness to make himself available to SEBA Bank as a strategic advisor will be of huge benefit to the organization.”
