Marc Bühler Takes Over as Head of Ti&M’s Singapore Officeby Fintech News Singapore July 27, 2020
ti&m has named Marc Bühler as the head of its new Singapore office, which opened in late 2019. As the managing director of Asia Pacific, he has been leading the company’s operations there since the start of June.
The office had previously been managed on an interim basis from Switzerland by Samuel Scheidegger who heads the product division and serves an executive member of the board at ti&m.
Bühler comes to ti&m from Julius Baer, where he began his career as an integration and security engineer in 2008, having graduated with a degree in Information Technology from ETH Zurich. In 2009 he transferred to Singapore, where he was promoted to head the IT architecture department in Asia Pacific.
In this role he was a member of the IT Management Team, which is responsible for more than 200 IT staff across Asia. Over more than 11 years in Singapore, he has become a high-profile expert in the city state’s banking scene. They said he is therefore the ideal person to establish and expand the new ti&m office.
“I am very much looking forward to this new challenge at ti&m. The Singapore office is the perfect combination of being a new start-up locally yet also having the backing of a great brand and a healthy company that wants to invest in the new location. My main objective is to establish ti&m as a trusted brand in Singapore and the region as a whole,”
When it comes to managing the new Singapore office, Bühler has a wealth of experience to draw from having acted as a consultant for several of start-ups.
“For us, Marc is the ideal fit for the Head of Singapore role. He has many years of wide-ranging experience, not only in Singapore itself but in the entire Asia region. He also shares our values of agility, passion, courage to innovate and entrepreneurship. Marc will help us to position the office sustainably in the market,”
says ti&m CEO and founder Thomas Wüst.
