UBS Executive Dies After Heart Attack While Playing Tennis


Sad to report.

George H. Weiler III, senior vice president for wealth-management services at UBS, has died. He was 69.

Bloomberg reports that he died on May 29 at New York-Presbyterian / Columbia University Medical Center, his wife, Mary Ann Weiler, said Friday in an interview.

He entered the hospital three days earlier after suffering a heart attack while playing tennis at the Bronxville Field Club in Bronxville, New York, where he lived.

onetime civil-rights attorney in Washington, Weiler practiced corporate law before starting his financial-services career in 1984 at Dillon Read & Co. in New York, where he worked in corporate and executive services such as structuring stock-option plans.

In 1997, Dillon Read was bought by Swiss Bank Corp., which combined the firm with its investment bank, SBC Warburg. The next year, SBC merged with Union Bank of Switzerland to form UBS, Switzerland’s biggest bank. Weiler joined UBS’s U.S. Wealth Management division in 2000.

At the time of his death he was senior vice president for wealth management and ran a unit, Weiler Financial Services, from UBS’s office in the MetLife Building, at 200 Park Ave., in Manhattan.
