Thomas Gross, CEO of Financial Information, will leave SIX as of 5 June 2013 to pursue a new direction in his career.
Thomas Gross took over management of the Financial Information Division in April 2009. Under his leadership, the number of financial instruments mapped was significantly increased and the costs of data production substantially reduced. The improvement in data quality over the past years has been a further key element in ensuring that SIX Financial Information has been the regular recipient of prestigious awards. The Board of Directors would like to thank Thomas Gross for his valuable contribution to the further development of the Financial Information business area at SIX in a difficult market environment and wishes him all the very best in his professional and private life.
Marcel Bättig, currently COO of the Financial Information Division, will take over management of the business area on an interim basis.
