Change in SWISS top management

21 November 2003

William L. Meaney, 43, Managing Director Commerce and a member of SWISS Executive Management, is to leave the company by mutual agreement. The decision has been taken in the light of differing views on the company’s future management structure.

In the wake of the decision by the SWISS Board of Directors to adopt a new management organisation based on the present three Managing Director positions, William L. Meaney and SWISS have agreed to part company.

The decision has been taken as a result of the parties’ differing views on the company’s future management structure. William L. Meaney will remain available to SWISS for a period of time to ensure a smooth and orderly handover of his duties and responsibilities. SWISS thanks William L. Meaney for the substantial contribution he has made to successfully initiating the company’s current turnaround programme.


Overall responsibility for the divisions under William L. Meaney’s charge will be assumed by CEO André Dosé until a new Managing Director Commerce is appointed.
