John Gubert, chairman of the executive committee of the Global Securities Services division at UniCredit, is stepping down after working with the bank for the last five years.

“After nearly five years working with UniCredit GSS, firstly as an advisor and latterly as Chairman of their Executive Committee, I am now leaving my official post in the company and will be focusing on my other interests,” said Gubert, in a statement released yesterday. “It has been a pleasure working with the UniCredit GSS team during the exciting period we have gone through in the last five years. I would like to take the opportunity of wishing all my former colleagues within GSS all success in the future.”

Gubert joined UniCredit in 2010 as an external adviser on their securities services strategy, becoming chairman of the executive committee in late 2011. He was previously global head of securities services at HSBC, where he stepped down in 2006, and has also served on the boards of both Euroclear and SWIFT.

Gubert, who has written prolifically about the industry since leaving HSBC in 2006, will continue to provide consultancy services and commentary.  “With 40-plus years of experience in financial services, including over 25 years in securities services, I have no intention of leaving the industry and will continue, through my 'JSG Consulting' business, to be involved in the many challenges arising from our fast-changing markets,” he says.
