„As assistant CEO and communications manager at Globalance Bank, I want to pass on my appreciation for people and enthusiasm for the cause.“


Sonja Suter is Assistant to the CEO and Secretary of the Board of Directors. She provides all-round support to Reto Ringger, heads various projects of Globalance Bank and is the first point of contact for the media.

Sonja Suter and Reto Ringger are a well-versed team: already at SAM Group, Ms Suter was Reto Ringger’s right hand for many years. She was also Secretary of the Board of Directors for SAM Group Holding Ltd. In those functions, she has acquired extensive knowledge in the fields of sustainability and future-oriented asset management.

Before venturing into the world of banking, Sonja Suter spent several years with the AXA Winterthur Group in the corporate communications area. She was a member of management and project head for the company’s annual report. Her last job at AXA was as Financial Communication Manager for the Investor Relations department.

Sonja Suter completed a commercial banking apprenticeship and followed up with continuing education studies in project management. She also holds an AKAD diploma in corporate communications.

„I like to travel. Hotels with perfectly organised procedures, where the employees respond graciously to the needs of each guest and take pleasure in their work – those are places that exude sheer magic. You’re always happy to return there. Recently, I experienced on a Mediterranean island how employees provided guests from various nations with a summary of the local news in their home country, right at the breakfast table! So all I can imagine is that the managers got up very early in the morning and compiled tailor-made news reports on behalf of their customers. That kind of courtesy demonstrates clearly that ‹Nothing is too much for us when it comes to you as our customer.› This esteem for people and enthusiasm for what one offers them is something I want to pass on at Globalance Bank as CEO Assistant and Head of Communications.“
