Daniel Wüest becomes new CFO at DocMorris

The Board of Directors of DocMorris AG has appointed Daniel Wüest to succeed Marcel Ziwica as CFO. Daniel Wüest will take over his new role on 1 October 2024.

Marcel Ziwica (49) will leave the company at his own request at the end of the year in order to reorient himself professionally after 23 years. Walter Oberhänsli, Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented: “We would like to express our sincere thanks to Marcel Ziwica. With him, a man from the very beginning is leaving the company, who has played a key role in all major projects of the last two decades and who has decidedly shaped the development of DocMorris. The company owes him a lot, both professionally and personally. We wish him all the best for his new start. With Daniel Wüest, DocMorris has been able to gain a competent successor and proven financial expert for this important position.”

The Swiss economist Daniel Wüest (54) has spent the last five years as Group CFO of the listed building supplier Arbonia, where he was actively involved in the strategic and financial realignment of the Group through acquisitions and disposals. Prior to that, Daniel Wüest worked for UBS for more than twenty years in various investment banking positions, where he advised on numerous mergers, acquisitions, debt and equity financings, and IPOs.

CEO Walter Hess is pleased about the new member of the Executive Board: “Daniel Wüest is a proven expert in corporate finance. His broad background of experience in the international corporate environment as well as in financial management and capital markets is extremely valuable to us. I am very much looking forward to working with him. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Marcel Ziwica for his excellent contribution, which is characterised by mutual respect and appreciation, which we will continue until his departure.”
