UK/EUROPE – Ian Toner has joined UBS Warburg as European head of marketing and distribution management, moving from Salomon Smith Barney (SSB), where he was global head of marketing for global index systems.

Toner left SSB willingly to pursue what he terms “a very interesting next step in his career” and for personal reasons.

The new position is an internal role looking at the whole range of products and services that UBS Warburg offers the financial industry and helping senior management within their client relationships to understand the marketplace and their clients’ individual needs.

Says Toner: “This new position offers a fresh challenge as well as the chance to enjoy my new found status as a father, with any luck my new daughter will be able to recognise me more than American Airline flight attendants.”

Toner had been at SSB for 18 months and has 11 years experience working in the financial sector.
