Riboni, who was appointed to the role in 2013, has agreed to continue his duties until the end of April 2019 and gradually hand over to his successor.
In a statement, Emmi said: “The board of directors and group management wish to thank Jörg Riboni for his service and valuable contribution to Emmi. He has played a key role in shaping and driving forward the development and internationalisation of Emmi in the past five years.
“He has adapted the group’s financial management to the international expansion and built up a team of recognised specialists. His readiness to ensure a smooth handover of his duties to his successor highlights his loyalty and sense of responsibility towards the Emmi Group.”
Riboni, aged 60, has a degree in business studies, majoring in finance and accounting, from the University of St. Gallen, and is also a federally certified chartered accountant.
