Jan Maarten de Jong, Quintet board chairman, said in a statement released on 23 March:
“We are enormously grateful to Jürg for his visionary leadership and invaluable contribution in defining a long-term growth strategy for our firm. We will miss his presence as an inspiring colleague and man of great intelligence, integrity and honor.”
The board named Jakob Stott, who had been serving as interim group CEO since December 2019, as Zeltner’s successor. Stott was appointed wealth management CEO after joining Quintet, also from UBS, in May 2019.
