Reto Isenring starts in the newly-created function of chief operating officer and deputy CEO. Isenring will also be a member of executive management. He was previously interim CEO of the bank's Singapore branch, pending the appointment of Ian Irvine Pollock, who now officially takes over as CEO of VP Bank Singapore, in addition to his leadership role in Hong Kong, subject to regulatory approval.

Pollock has headed VP Bank Group's activities in the Asia-Pacific region since 1 January 2012. His move last November from his previous employer, Julius Baer, was first covered here. As a member of the board since February 2012, he is responsible for the management and development of VP Bank Singapore and VP Wealth Management Hong Kong. He brings 30 years of financial services experience, the last 20 of which was in the private banking industry.

Previously, he held senior executive positions in the Hong Kong and Singapore offices of the likes of Security Pacific National Bank, Republic National Bank of New York, HSBC Private Bank and Julius Baer, where he was jointly COO for North Asia and CFO for Asia for two years.
