Vaduz, 24 February 2021. The Board of Directors of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG (LLB) has appointed Dr. Gabriel Brenna as the new Group Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Group Executive Management of the LLB Group effective 1 March 2021, subject to the approval of the FMA. Gabriel Brenna is succeeding Roland Matt, who left the company at the end of January 2021.

Gabriel Brenna has been Head of the Private Banking Division and a member of the Group Executive Management and the Board of Management of the company since 2012. During two strategy phases, he drove the expansion of Private Banking and made a significant contribution to the growth of the LLB Group in the home markets of Liechtenstein, Austria, and Switzerland, as well as in Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Gabriel Brenna is also Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Liechtensteinische Landesbank (Österreich) AG and a member of the Boards of Directors of LLB Asset Management AG and Bank Linth LLB AG.

Before joining the LLB Group, Gabriel Brenna worked for the consulting firm McKinsey & Company in Zurich and London for eight years, ultimately as Partner and Head of the Swiss Private Banking and Risk Management Practice. In this capacity, he advised private banks, cantonal banks, and major international banks in Switzerland and Europe on a wide range of strategic and operational questions.

As expressed by Gabriela Nagel-Jungo, Vice Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, "The Board of Directors is pleased to be able to appoint Gabriel Brenna as Group CEO, a strong leader from within our own ranks who knows the LLB Group and its successful development from many years of experience and has helped shape it. In recent years, he has demonstrated his strategic strengths and his client orientation and will carry our broadly diversified business model into the future with great motivation and conviction on the basis of our values, together with a strong team."

Gabriel Brenna studied at the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) and at Carnegie Mellon University and Stanford University in the United States, obtaining his doctorate from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in 2004. He is a Swiss and Italian citizen, has been a resident of Liechtenstein since 2012, and lives with his family in Triesen.

Gabriel Brenna will continue to head the Private Banking Division of the LLB Group for now until his successor in this capacity has been chosen.

The Board of Directors would like to warmly thank Urs Müller, who served as interim CEO of the LLB Group and made a smooth transition possible. He will continue to serve as Deputy Group CEO and focus again on managing the Private and Corporate Clients Division and the chairmanship of the Board of Directors of Bank Linth.
