GSS Newsletter January 2016 - Issue 177

Dear Clients, Partners and Friends,

Spring weather at Christmas, ski slopes edged by lush green, above-zero degree temperatures on the North Pole – the holiday season came in pretty unconventionally here in Europe; a perfect reason to examine old habits and push the reset button where necessary.

What remains constant, however, is our commitment to serving our customers at the best possible level. We wish you a great start into the new year and look forward to an exciting 2016 together with you!

In the name of UniCredit’s entire GSS Team,

Sven Trahan
Head of Global Sales & Relationship Management GSS
