Widmer-Schlumpf Says Hildebrand Resignation Didn’t Spark Vacuum

Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Swiss President Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf said the surprise regisgnation of Philipp Hildebrand didn’t leave a “vacuum’ at the Swiss National Bank.

‘‘We have an interim president,’’ Widmer-Schlumpf said at a briefing at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, today, referring to Thomas Jordan. People I met today ‘‘regretted the departure of Hildebrand’’ because ‘‘he was much appreciated. There were no concerns expressed that it weakened the SNB. I was positively surprised today.’’

She also said that ‘‘it’s a good sign’’ that the SNB is ‘‘considered this stable.’’
