Tages-Anzeiger newspaper reported on Saturday.

Mike Dargan, who has been with UBS for 7 years, and Francesca
McDonagh, who joined Credit Suisse last September, will be
tasked with unifying the two banks.
It is unclear when the merger will be completed.
UBS has agreed to buy Credit Suisse for 3 billion Swiss francs
($3.26 billion) in stock and to assume up to 5 billion francs
($5.44 billion) in losses, in a merger engineered by Swiss
($1 = 0.9199 Swiss francs)
