With the appointment of Tobias Unger and Markus Gröninger to the Board of Directors, Etops Group is preparing for future development steps. The two new board members bring many years of experience in building technology and service solutions for the financial industry. They will support the WealthTech provider in refining and implementing its strategic vision and in initiating further phases of growth.

Etops Group can look back on an intensive expansion phase. Through its own efforts and targeted strategic acquisitions, it has become a leading technology provider for the financial industry in recent years, covering the entire value chain for financial service providers on a modern platform. The task at hand is to merge the different company structures to unity and to leverage synergies. The two new board members will monitor the necessary measures with their management experience as well as market and digitalisation expertise and will also actively advise the company in the business development field.

The further development of Etops Group will follow the strategic vision to revolutionise the financial services industry with data-driven products and the use of Machine Learning and GenAI. The solutions will enable market participants from the wealth management, family office, pension fund and private banking sectors to tackle complex challenges around their clients' financial lives by providing information, tools and products through a curated ecosystem.

Tobias Unger looks back on many years of experience as COO and CEO in the areas of financial technology, private banking, investment banking and M&A. He was COO and deputy CEO of Falcon Private Bank and CEO of Avaloq Switzerland, as well as a member of the board of directors of various companies in the finance and technology sector. Today, he is the owner of a private equity advisory firm and CEO of a banking services provider in Germany.

Markus Gröninger, a proven digitisation expert and experienced top manager, is joining the Board of Directors. He can rely on a long career in IT companies and was the country manager of large IT groups. Most recently, he held management positions in the Avaloq Group, first as CEO of the Avaloq outsourcing subsidiary B-Source and later as Group Chief Markets Officer. For the past five years, he has been supporting SMEs and start-ups in their digital transformation with his own consulting company and also acts as a professional board member and investor.

With the appointment of Tobias Unger and Markus Gröninger as independent, non-executive board members, the Board of Directors is extended to three members. Pius Stucki, who founded Etops more than ten years ago and has been CEO ever since acts as Chairman.

"With Tobias Unger and Markus Gröninger, I have two strong sparring partners at my side for the strategic development of Etops," says Pius Stucki, CEO of Etops Group AG, looking forward to working with the two new board members.
