Hélène Weber-Dubi has decided to step down as CFO of ORIOR at the upcoming Annual General Meeting on 26 March 2015. She will have served as the Group’s financial chief for more than 15 years. From summer 2015 Hélène Weber-Dubi will be available to ORIOR for special Management Services jobs, so the company will continue to benefit from her knowledge and her energy.
 
The Board of Directors has appointed Ricarda Demarmels (born 1979) as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. The economics graduate (lic. oec. HSG) previously worked as Investment Director for private equity company Capvis Equity Partners AG, and in this role gained an in-depth knowledge of ORIOR. Before that she worked for the Oliver Wyman consultancy firm and the Swiss National Bank. Ricarda Demarmels takes over as CFO in April 2015.
 
The Board of Directors and her colleagues on the Management Board would like to offer Hélène Weber-Dubi their heartfelt thanks for her outstanding work over many years. Speaking on behalf of both bodies, Rolf U. Sutter, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said: “Hélène Weber-Dubi has played a significant role in ORIOR Group’s development. She has long expressed a wish to step back a little, and the Board has agreed to this. At the same time we are very pleased to have found a very well qualified successor in Ricarda Demarmels.”
