Profile: Charles Naylor, chief communications officer, Credit Suisse Group

When Charles Naylor takes up his new job in Zurich as chief communications officer at Credit Suisse Group on 6 December, he will have just a day to prepare for what could be one of the financial community's most dramatic rebranding announcements. Credit Suisse Group chief executive Oswald Grubel is set to announce the financial services giant's new strategy. There has been a flurry of speculation that it will sell insurance arm Winterthur and scrap First Boston from the name of iconic investment banking arm Credit Suisse First Boston. Grubel has yet to garner the ruthless reputation of his former co-chief executive John Mack - dubbed 'Mack the knife' after returning CSFB to profitability by cutting jobs and pay packets - who left the company in June after three years.
