Norbert Biedermann, CEO of LGT Bank Ltd. since 2011, will retire at the end of June 2017. The Board of Directors of LGT Bank Ltd. has elected Roland Schubert as the new CEO.
"Norbert Biedermann has been at LGT for over 40 years. Only very few employees know our company and its procedures, pro-cesses and the inner workings of LGT and the financial sector as well as he does", says Thomas Piske, CEO LGT Private Banking and Chairman of the Board of Directors of LGT Bank Ltd. In 1974, after completing his banking apprenticeship, Norbert Biedermann joined LGT Bank in Liechtenstein, where he worked in a broad range of departments – including in accounting, internal audit, foreign exchange and money market trading as well as investment advisory – for the next 25 years. In 2001, he was appointed a member of the Executive Board and in October 2008, became Deputy CEO. In 2011, Norbert Biedermann assumed overall responsibility for LGT Bank Ltd. when he became CEO.
"Norbert Biedermann has made an important contribution to shaping LGT’s development over the last few decades. Under his leadership, LGT not only successfully mastered the transformation process in the banking and financial sector, but developed into an internationally recognized provider of private banking services. Norbert Biedermann is handing LGT Bank in Liechtenstein over in excellent condition and we thank him for his longstanding, untiring commitment and extraordinary dedication", says Thomas Piske. Norbert Biedermann will retire on 30 June 2017.
The Board of Directors of LGT Bank Ltd. has elected Roland Schubert as the future CEO of LGT Bank Ltd. Roland Schubert studied business administration and economics at the University of Paderborn.

Following this, he returned to LGT Bank Ltd. in Liechtenstein in 2013, where he has since served as a member of the Executive Board responsible for the direct clients business. "With the election of Roland Schubert, the Board of Directors has chosen a highly-qualified internal candidate with strong expertise in Private Banking who has for many years held a management position at LGT. This internal solution for succession underscores the importance that we attribute to continuity in management. We are convinced that this decision will set the course for the further successful development of LGT Bank Ltd." As CEO, Roland Schubert will continue to be responsible for the direct clients business.
