TrustBills, the auction platform for trade receivables, is expanding its business to Switzerland and Austria, hiring former banker Petra Suetter as senior vice-president of client solutions to drive this growth.

Suetter joins from NatWest, where, most recently, she was responsible for relationships with multinational companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as executive director of corporate coverage. Before joining RBS, she worked for Deutsche Bank for two decades, focusing on the coverage of multinational corporates in Switzerland.

“Petra brings with her a wealth of experience and a first-class network within the C-suites of German, Austrian and Swiss multinationals,” says TrustBills CEO and founder Jörg Hörster. “It is invaluable for us to build on the expertise of such a well-connected and highly respected person during the expansion of TrustBills.”

With Suetter joining, the dual leadership under Hörster becomes a trio. She complements the distribution and product marketing team of Claudia Haas, who joined from Marsh in February and Markus Wohlgeschaffen, UniCredit’s former global head of trade products, who joined in 2016.
