Christoph Brand, Chief Strategy Officer and Member of the Group Executive Board of Swisscom AG, has decided to leave the company in mid-2006 after more than ten years of service. Following a sabbatical, he will take on a new career challenge outside the Swisscom Group. Christoph Brand has held a number of positions at Swisscom since 1995, including serving as CEO of Bluewin and as Head of Swisscom Fixnet's Network Division.
The Board of Directors and the CEO would like to thank Christoph Brand for his excellent contribution in various functions within the company. Carsten Schloter, CEO of Swisscom AG, will take over responsibility for Strategy & Business Development until such time as a successor is appointed.
