Credit Suisse hires group head of corporate comms

Credit Suisse has appointed former Reuters and Bloomberg journalist Rob Cox as group head of corporate communications, the most senior comms role at the financial services company.

Rob Cox, who joins Credit Suisse in April and will be based in Zurich, succeeds Christine Graeff, who last month moved to the role of global head of human resources. Cox will report to chief executive Thomas Gottstein.

On Cox’s arrival, Dominik von Arx, who is leading the function on an interim basis, will become deputy group head of corporate communications.

Cox helped found, build and oversee Breakingviews, which was sold to Thomson Reuters in 2009 as is now Reuters’ international commentary arm. His most recent title was founding editor of Breakingviews.

Cox, who has lived in Zurich since 2020, previously held editorial roles at Bloomberg News in New York, Milan and London, and American Banker in Chicago.
