  • The Board of Directors of the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) has unanimously elected Dagmar Laub as the Association’s new Head of Communications & Public Affairs.
  • Dagmar Laub is currently Head of Corporate Communications at Zürcher Kantonalbank. She will take up her new office at the SBA on 1 October.
  • Until then, Carina Schaller, Head of Public Affairs, will act as Head of Communications & Public Affairs.

Dagmar Laub will take over as Head of Communications & Public Affairs at the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) with effect from 1 October 2023. In this role, she will be a member of the Executive Board. The SBA’s Board of Directors elected her unanimously.

Ms Laub has been Head of Corporate Communications at Zürcher Kantonalbank, Switzerland’s third-largest bank, since 2015.
