Former FSA chief executive officer John Tiner has been put forward for election to join Credit Suisse’s board of directors.

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.

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.”
