GF’s Chief Financial Officer Roland Abt (59) has been proposed for nomination as member of the Board of Swisscom AG. He has therefore decided to step down at the end of 2016.
The nomination of Roland Abt at Swisscom will bring his total external mandates in Swiss listed companies to two, temporarily exceeding the amount allowed by the GF Articles of Association. In the remaining course of the year, he will help ensuring a proper transition with his successor who will be nominated in due time.
Roland Abt can look back on a very successful career at GF including as CFO of the corporation over the last 13 years. We congratulate him for this nomination, certainly a testimony of his excellent competence and reputation inside and outside of our company. Board and Executive Committee thank him very much for his outstanding contributions over the last 21 years at the service of our company and wish him much success in his new roles.
