Changes to the Board of Directors at Schurter

7th May 2020

After almost 35 years success in leading positions including CEO of the family business, Hans-Rudolf Schurter is retiring. The reason for this is not due to a lack of enthusiasm for his duties, but to the company's Articles of Association.

According to these statutes, the term of office of a family member on the Board of Directors of SCHURTER Holding ends at the Annual General Meeting following the completion of his 70th year of age.

SCHURTER Holding is fully owned by the Schurter family, therefore the presidency of the Board of Directors shall continue to be exercised by a family member. Based on this consideration and in order to maintain continuity over the decades, Dr Thomas Schurter who has been a member of the Board of Directors of SCHURTER Holding since 1998 will take up the position.

In the coming years, the next generation of the family will gradually be prepared for tasks within the SCHURTER Group.

Thomas Schurter born 18.09.1955, is a doctor of chiropractic. He lives in partnership and has three adult children from his first marriage.

From 1984 to 2018 Thomas Schurter ran his own chiropractic practice in Lucerne. For the last 1½ years he has been getting to know the operative business of the SCHURTER Group in Lucerne and also at the group companies.

From 1988-2000 he was a member and from 2000-2020 Chairman of the Board of Directors of Heim im Bergli AG, which runs a private retirement and nursing home in Lucerne. He also held other board seats and chairmanships in smaller stock corporations.

In professional organisations he was a member of the board and president of the Central Swiss Chiropractors Society and a member of the Chirosuisse tariff commission.

Due to the retirement of Hans-Rudolf Schurter and the succession of his brother Thomas, a family mandate on the Board of Directors becomes vacant. In future, this will be assumed by Ralph Sigg-Schurter (born 1961), attorney and notary public in Hergiswil.
