«Better Together»: Synpulse Appoints Two New CEOs
Following Dr. Christoph Nützenadel’s retirement announcement on January 4, the company has announced the nomination of two new leaders. Effective February 1, 2021, Yves Roesti and Konrad Niggli will be appointed CEOs of Synpulse Group.
Synpulse is one of the world’s leading management consulting companies for financial service providers. Since opening its first office in Switzerland in 1996, Synpulse has seen rapid growth, especially in recent years. Appointing two new CEOs covering the Western and Eastern hemispheres is an optimal solution that will benefit both clients and employees around the globe.
Konrad Niggli (pictured in the video above left) joined Synpulse as a consultant and became a partner in the area of reinsurance in 2011. He currently heads the global reinsurance practice, focusing on digital reinsurance operations. He also led the company’s US practice in New York from 2014 to 2017. Niggli has many years of experience in client centricity and underwriting processes in commercial primary insurance and reinsurance. His work revolves around ongoing digitalization and smart automation in reinsurance.
Yves Roesti, who is currently responsible for Synpulse’s consulting business in Asia, started his career at Synpulse in 2006. Since his relocation to Singapore in 2008, he has led the Asian consulting team to impressive growth, not only in Singapore, but also across five other key markets: Hong Kong, the Philippines, Australia, Indonesia, and India. In 2015 he was appointed partner. His particular focus has been promoting banking operating model transformations and digital roadmaps.
«Client contact and proximity to the local market is one of the main objectives of the co-CEO role, » explains Niggli. «It’s not about focusing on the individual, but about standing together – in the interests of our clients and their needs. » Roesti adds: «Better Together! ‘Co’ is on trend – for example co-creation, one of the most effective tools we have for partnering with our clients, experts, and talents.»
