Close Bros opens Zurich office

Independent corporate finance house Close Brothers has opened an office in Zurich, Switzerland and has appointed a new managing director to head its Swiss operations.

Jürg Glesti joins Close Brothers from BNP Paribas where he was a global relationship banker for mid-cap and large corporates. Prior to that he spent nine years at KPMG where he headed the Swiss corporate finance division.

Close Brothers is opening a Swiss office after advising on two mid-market transactions in the IT sector in recent months.
