Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Helvetia Holding AG is the highest management body of the company. It is responsible for the overall management and the strategic direction of the Group and it also appoints and monitors the Executive Management. As a result of the merger with Nationale Suisse and the unexpected death of its long-serving chairman, Erich Walser, at the end of December 2014, the Board of Directors currently consists of twelve members. The office of Chairman of the Board of Directors will be exercised by the vice-chairwoman Mrs Doris Russi Schurter until the end of the 2015 Shareholders’ Meeting.
Different committees have been formed in ­order to make good use of individual member ­expertise in the decision-making processes.

With the Strategy and Governance Committee, the Nomination and Compensation Committee, the Audit Committee as well as the Investment and Risk Committee, Helvetia has four Board committees which ensure the effective control and monitoring of the company.
