Credit Suisse has named Rob Cox, global editor/co-founder of Reuters’ Breakingviews financial commentary site, group head of corporate communications. He will join the bank in Zurich on April 12.
He helped launch Breakingviews in London in 2000 and then guided its U.S. expansion in 2004, including the oversight of daily columns in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times.
Reuters acquired Breakingviews in 2009 and Cox became editor-in-chief in charge of about 40 columnists in New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris.
Earlier, he worked at Bloomberg News and American Banker.
At Credit Suisse, Cox will take over from Christine Graeff, who was appointed global head of human resources in February 2022 and report to CEO Thomas Gottstein.
Dominik von Arx, who handled PR on an interim basis, will become deputy group head of corporate communications.
Gottstein said Cox will help Credit Suisse pursue its goal “of becoming a more client-centric bank with risk management at its core.”
