Brady W. Dougan
Before assuming the role of CEO, Dougan served as CEO of the Credit Suisse Investment Bank. He also served as CEO of Credit Suisse Americas, where he oversaw Investment Banking, Private Banking and Asset Management in the region. Before joining the Credit Suisse First Boston in 1990, Dougan was part of the Derivatives Group at Bankers Trust Company.
In December of 2010, Dougan announced that Credit Suisse would issue billions of dollars in contingent-capital bonds in 2011 to help the bank's financial strength ahead of new Swiss regulations. He called them "coco" bonds and aims to insure investors and regulators that there is adequate demand for the bank's debt. The banks bullish stand on cocos differs from their competitors at UBS who has said it would not consider issuing these instruments in the near future. 
Dougan received a B.A. in Economics in 1981 and an MBA in Finance in 1982 from the University of Chicago.
