Credit Suisse Names Tibor Kossa Head of German, Austrian M&A

Credit Suisse Group AG (CSGN), the second-biggest Swiss bank, named Tibor Kossa the head of mergers and acquisitions for Germany and Austria as it realigns leadership in Europe’s biggest economy.

Kossa, 35, will start the new job immediately, the Zurich-based bank said in an e-mailed statement today. He has been with Credit Suisse in Frankfurt since 2002 and has advised clients in energy and utilities, financial services, industrials and infrastructure.

Credit Suisse last month named Nicolo Salsano as head of the investment-banking department for Germany and Austria. He is succeeding Ken Oliver Fritz, who is leaving to become Lazard (LAZ)’s co-head for Germany with Eric Fellhauer.
