Czechoslovakian Kamila Spurna has rejoined Credit Suisse Asset Management (CSAM) as chairman of its management board.
Her appointment follows a four-year stint at Citicorp Investment Company, where she was a senior portfolio manager and member of the board.
Before joining Citicorp, Spurna was portfolio manager and a financial analyst at CSAM.
In her new role, she will be CSAM’s senior representative in the Czech Republic and will report to Glenn Wellman, head of central and Eastern Europe operations and chief operating officer for CSAM in Europe ex-Switzerland.
Spurna will be responsible for managing the firm’s business in the Czech Republic, which mainly focuses on providing investment services to institutional clients in the Czech and Slovak Republics. CSAM also intends to expand its distribution of its Luxembourg offshore funds once necessary regulatory consents have been obtained.
Commenting on Spurna’s appointment, Wellman said: “This important appointment is an expression of our confidence in the future development of the Czech savings markets and of CSAM’s commitment to expand its client base in the Czech Republic and across the whole region.
