Saxo Bank announces changes to its Board of Management

RELATED TOPICS​

Saxo Bank has announced two changes to its Board of Management designed to further strengthen client focus, corporate governance and strategy execution.

Members of the Board of Management are appointed by the Board of Directors. The Board of Management now consists of CEO Kim Fournais (pictured), Deputy CEO and COO Søren Kyhl, CFRO Steen Blaafalk and CCO Damian Bunce.
 
The changes strengthen Saxo Bank’s leadership and accountability in the Board of Management in relation to clients, shareholders, Board of Directors, regulators and employees.
 
With Damian Bunce as a new member of the Board of Management, Saxo further increases the essential client and commercial focus. The promotion of Søren Kyhl to the newly established role as Deputy CEO adds even more firepower to Saxo’s strategy execution and provides a steadfast long-term leadership of the Bank. As Deputy CEO and COO, Søren is the natural and logical interim successor to Kim Fournais should that become necessary.
 
Fournais says: “I am proud and satisfied that Søren has been appointed Deputy CEO and that Damian will join our Board of Management. The appointments reflect their excellent skills, knowledge, attitude, motivation and high importance to the Bank and our future growth journey. With these changes we ensure clarity, focus and accountability and the changes allow me to focus on constantly improving and executing the strategy for Saxo Bank while building a world-class team and organisation.”
 
“Søren is a very natural and competent Deputy CEO that I trust to run certain important strategic priorities. These changes will further strengthen and professionalise Saxo and I am proud to be leading such a unique team. I am more passionate and fired up than ever to ensure that Saxo will prevail and become the fastest growing financial institution within traders, investors and wholesale partners. This is therefore not a retirement plan for me but an upgrade of our leadership capabilities, better supporting our fiduciary duties as well as creating a natural deputy function for me and Saxo going forward.”
 
The Executive Team will continue to be the global executive leadership team in Saxo Bank. Besides from the Board of Management members, it consists of CIO Ashok Kalyanswamy and CHRO Stig Christensen.
