Sergio Ermotti Second In Line to Oswald Grubel

After the $2.3 billion rogue trading scandal, plans to accelerate CEO Oswald Grubel's departures accelerated in order to speed up restructuring and senior management changes. In 2009, Grubel was brought out of retirement to run UBS following huge losses on subprime assets that lead to its bailout by the Swiss government. Sixty-seven year old Gruebel had run Credit Suisse and was retired when UBS sought him to clean out UBS from the fallout of the subprime mortgage debacle.
