At a time when the Swiss body-politic is trying to come to grips with an economically self defeating immigration quota system, championed by an overzealous far right party, they parachute in a renowned African technocrat in Tidjane Thiam, an Ivorian, to revive the fortunes of the country's (including world's) oldest and biggest bank, Credit Suisse. We live in a big global village after all!
not the world's oldest bank, not by a long stretch

As for Thiam, let's wait until the next round of bonuses are announced and I'm sure the euphoria will melt away as people see he's no more a messiah than any of his predecessors.
