MADRID, November 8 (European press) –
The bank said in a statement that the chief risk officer at Swiss bank UBS, Christian Blum, has decided to leave his position at the financial institution to focus on his photography studio and further his career as a university academic.
The company decided to name Damien Vogel as a replacement for Bluhm. He will take office in May 2023 and will take a seat on the Board of Directors previously held by the current Head of Risk Management.
Vogel is the Chief Risk Officer in UBS Wealth Management. Since joining the bank in 2010, he has held various positions in both the wealth divisions and in the personal and business banking divisions.
“I am delighted to welcome Damien Fogel to the UBS Board of Directors as our new Head of Risk Management. With his strong track record, deep exposure to risk and expertise across asset classes,” said Ralph Hammers, CEO of the bank.
Bluhm has his own photography studio in Zurich. He specializes in custom commissions and large format photography, as well as portraits, fashion photography and wedding reporting. Similarly, he also has several books published on risk analysis and portfolio management.
