Personnel changes at Congrex Switzerland!
A few days ago, Managing Director Alain Pittet announced, that he would leave Congrex Switzerland to take on new professional challenges.
Julia Bicher, Director Operations & Key Accounts who acted as his deputy will temporarily take over the position as Managing Director. She will be supported by Sabine Adam, Director of Business Development & Key Accounts and Saskia Strahberger, Director of Finance & HR, both members of the executive management. The board will make the final decision on his succession during the next weeks.
The board and management deeply regret the departure of Alain. He has been contributing significantly to the establishment and enhancement of the international reputation of Congrex Switzerland.
He leaves the company after a very successful 2017, in which several important multi-year contracts with new clients have been signed and some long-term collaborations could be extended until 2023. This very good order situation allows the new management to look very positively into the medium to long-term future.
“I am happy to leave Congrex Switzerland in a moment where the company again occupies a leading position in the European competitive environment”, says Alain Pittet.
