Press release

Swisscom IT Services strengthens its market presence

Berne, 24 September 2010

From mid-2011, Swisscom IT Services and its subsidiaries Comit, Resource, Panatronic and Sourcag will appear on the market under the uniform umbrella brand Swisscom, a step that will clarify the company's leading position as an integral IT provider. Additionally, Sourcag Ltd, the BPO specialist for banks, will be incorporated into Comit at the organisational level. Johannes Höhener, a member of Comit's Executive Board, will assume control of Sourcag Ltd from 1 October 2010.

By having a uniform visual identity for all of its subsidiaries, Swisscom IT Services will be able to position itself more clearly on the market. The company has grown strongly in recent years and now offers a wide spectrum of IT services, ranging from traditional outsourcing to workplace and print offerings, consulting and solutions for the financial industry through to SAP services. The Group-wide Swisscom logo as a uniform umbrella brand will now reflect our customer promise of "everything from a single source" even more emphatically.

Concentrated IT competence - one originator

The Comit, Resource and Sourcag brands are to be replaced by the Swisscom brand. Differentiated designations with a uniform logic guarantee the recognisability of the individual subsidiaries and demonstrate our core competences in areas such as outsourcing, workplace services, services for the financial industry or SAP solutions. The uniform visual identity is intended to enhance the external visibility of our comprehensive IT competence and underline Swisscom IT Services' broad range of competences.

Enhancing services for the financial industry

This realignment will see Sourcag Ltd integrated into Comit, thereby bringing it under the roof of Swisscom IT Services. Sourcag, a specialist in business process outsourcing (BPO) for banks, already markets itself in tandem with Comit. In this context, there is to be a change of personnel at Sourcag's helm, as the current CEO, Beat Lehmann, has decided to leave the company at the end of September 2010. He will be replaced by Johannes Höhener, a member of Comit's Executive Board, from 1 October.

Johannes, a 52-year-old economist and business administration expert, previously managed the foreign companies and, as a long-term member of the Comit Executive Board, has been instrumental in building up the company. The current CEO, Beat Lehmann, has successfully built up Sourcag over the past nine years, developing the company into an important BPO provider for banks in Switzerland. The Board of Directors would like to thank Beat for his valuable contribution and wish him every success for the future, both professionally and personally.
