Campelli will oversee the bank's transformation processes and its workforce, tasks previously shared by several executives. He is the global head of wealth management bank, but is starting his new role with immediate effect.
"Given the size of the task, there should be one Board member who will devote all his energies to this comprehensive transformation," Supervisory Board Chairman Paul Aclitner said in a statement.
The cost of the bank's reversal plan, released in July, is estimated at $ 7.4 billion.
