GAM has confirmed the resignation of Tanja Weiher from her position as board member, due to her taking on another role in the Swiss financial services industry.
Weiher has been part of GAM’s board since April 2013 and has served as a member of the Audit Committee and of the Governance and Nomination Committee.
Alongside her position at GAM, Weiher is owner and founder of weiher partners ag, an independent consulting boutique based in Zurich. She has close to 20 years of industry experience, among others as CFO of the Wealth Management and Retail Banking Division of UBS AG.
The company will nominate a new candidate for election to the Board of Directors at its upcoming Annual General Meeting, scheduled for 27 April 2016.
Johannes A. de Gier, chairman of the Board of Directors, said: “I have a great appreciation for Tanja Weiher’s contribution to the Board and her impact on our company’s evolution over the past three years. On behalf of the full Board of Directors, I would like to express my gratitude and, whilst we are pleased for Tanja that she has been offered this new opportunity, our sincere regret that she has been required to step down and will no longer be able to work with us.”
