21.12.17 - Stefan Kessler (Jenins/GR) and Stephan Kuhn (Schaffhausen) have been proposed as members of the Axpo Holding AG Board of Directors for a term from 2017 to 2019. The Board of Directors will propose the two members to the General Meeting on 19 January 2018. With these two personnel changes, the restructuring of the Board of Directors that commenced in 2017 will be completed.
The two new members will succeed State Councillors Köbi Frei (AR) and Robert Marti (GL), who are stepping down. The Board of Directors thanks the two retiring members for their dedication to Axpo Holding AG and wishes them all the best for the future.
In 2017, the General Meeting of Axpo Holding AG reduced the number of board members from 13 to 9, eliminated double mandates with cantonal utilities, and replaced State Councillors with professional experts with no political mandates. Two new professional experts have been proposed to the Board of Directors with Stefan Kessler and Stephan Kuhn.
"We are pleased to have found two additional, qualified experts with these candidates, who ideally complement the Axpo Board of Directors in important key areas," said Thomas Sieber, who looks forward to collaboration with the new Board of Directors.
The proposed, future mandate holders have an excellent track record and long-standing professional experience in key areas that are of great importance to Axpo Holding AG:
After their appointement at the Annual General Meeting on 19 January 2019, the restructuring of the Axpo Holding AG Board of Directors under the leadership of Chairman Thomas Sieber will be completed as planned.
