Isabelle Welton and Rudolf Huber, members of the Board of Directors of Georg Fischer, will not stand for re-election at the next Annual Shareholders Meeting on 18 March 2015. The Board of Directors is to propose Eveline Saupper for election as a new member. A statutory reduction of the Board size from ten to nine members will be submitted to the shareholders.
 
Eveline Saupper, Swiss, studied law at the University of St. Gallen. From 1994 to June 2014, she was a partner of the law firm Homburger AG, Zurich, where she works as Of Counsel today. Eveline Saupper is a member of the Board of Directors and Chair of the Remuneration Committee of Baloise Holding Ltd, Basel. She is also a member of the Board of Directors and Remuneration Committee of Syngenta International Ltd, Basel, and a Board member of Stäubli Holding AG, Pfäffikon.
 
“We are pleased to propose Eveline Saupper for our Board of Directors. With her many years of experience in legal and remuneration topics she will certainly complement our Board in an ideal manner,” comments Chairman Andreas Koopmann.
 
Isabelle Welton is not standing for re-election as her new responsibilities in the Executive Committee of the Zurich Insurance Group restrict her time availability. She has held the mandate since 2012.
 
After serving on the Board for nine years, Rudolf Huber decided to step down at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting 2015 on account of his multiple other obligations. During seven years, he acted as Chairman of the Audit Committee of GF.
