Newly organised management of Ernst Schweizer AG
As of 1 February 2024, there will be changes to the management bodies of Schweizer:
The Corporate Management is adapting to the changed internal and external conditions and realigning its structure and personnel. Gunnar Johansson and Marc Bremgartner now complete the company’s four-member operational management team, which continues to include Samuel Schweizer (Chairman) and Laurent Baechler (Finance and ICT).
The solar business, with its considerable share of sales and European presence, will be given the weight it deserves at UL in the person of Gunnar Johansson. He will also remain Head of the Solar Systems unit.
Marc Bremgartner will be responsible for all topics relating to the supply chain at Schweizer. Against this background, the Production + Infrastructure unit will also report to him in future. The Wood/Metal, Folding and Sliding Walls and Mailboxes and Parcel Boxes units will report to Samuel Schweizer.
In addition to the members of the Corporate Management, the Executive Management comprises the heads of the business units. These are Reto Meier (Wood/Metal), Martin Rohrer (Folding and Sliding Walls), Timotheus Abegg (Production + Infrastructure) and Christoph Moser. At the beginning of January, the latter took over the management of the Letter boxes and Parcel Boxes unit from Roger Bapst, who is retiring at the end of March and is playing a key role in the transition of the division.
There will be two changes in the management of the specialist departments: Purchasing management changes from Marc Bremgartner to the previous deputy Ruedi Wernli. The previous deputy is also taking over in ICT: Juan Luis Sanz replaces Christian Schmid, who is leaving the company at the end of April.
Samuel Schweizer is looking forward to working in the new setup: “I am very pleased that we were able to fill our management bodies with tried and tested faces, thus ensuring the necessary continuity. I congratulate all colleagues on their new positions and look forward to intensive collaboration.”
