Tiner, also chief executive officer of Resolution, joins Bobst Group chief executive Andreas Koopman and Credit Suisse chief operating officer Urs Rohner in standing for election.
The move comes after Credit Suisse chairman Walter Kielholz steps down from his role to focus on his role as chairman at reinsurer Swiss Re.
Kielholz will be replaced by Hans-Ulrich Doerig, currently vice chairman at Credit Suisse.
Doerig says: “I am delighted that we are able to propose Andreas Koopmann, Urs Rohner and John Tiner for election to the board. They will each be able to make a very important contribution to the continuing success of Credit Suisse.”
A statement released by the bank said the bank’s very strong capital base, clear strategy, experienced board of directors and excellent management team means that this is an appropriate time to make these changes to its board.
