ZURICH, 14-Dec-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — Ms. Staiblin is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Alpiq, a leading Swiss energy services provider and electricity producer in Europe, but recently announced that she will step down from this role as per end of 2018. Ms. Staiblin had been proposed for election to the Board in March 2018 but withdrew her candidacy due to conflicts with other corporate commitments that she had at that time.

She brings a deep understanding of the changing needs of businesses, and the emerging risk landscapes that are of increasing importance especially to our commercial customers. Jasmin Staiblin will be a welcome and valuable complement to our Board, and as such, help Zurich to succeed in its ambition to be a truly customer-led insurer.”
Mr. Liès also thanked David Nish, a member of the Board since 2016, who will not stand for re-election at the next Annual General Meeting. “On behalf of the board and all shareholders, I would like to thank David for his outstanding service and commitment to Zurich. Thanks to his profound knowledge of the insurance industry and his experience in the UK, he has helped to position Zurich for an exciting future.”
