Swisscom will remain a customer of SXB Managed Mobility Ltd. The cooperation between Swisscom and SXB Managed Mobility Ltd shall continue as before. Stefan Reber, Chief Executive of Business Fleet Management AG: “SXB Managed Mobility Ltd shall continue to act as partner for the Swisscom vehicles fleet with responsibility, in particular, for vehicle maintenance, claims management and firstlevel support for all Swisscom employees entitled to a vehicle from our fleet.”
SXB Managed Mobility Ltd will still be located at the established premises of Sixt Leasing in Urdorf. Sixt Leasing (Switzerland) Ltd will also retain the service portfolio and the existing, experienced staff team. With the termination of the joint venture and the company’s full integration within Sixt Leasing, Heike Arnold, the former chief executive, will be leaving the company.
Dirk Fuchs, Chief Executive of Sixt Leasing (Switzerland) Ltd: “With the complete takeover it will bring clear added value for our customers. Fleet customers are increasingly looking for a mobility partner who is also able to provide consultancy services in addition to fleet management and driver assistance. This full integration with the parent company gives us the benefit of international experience and the opportunity to assist our customers more intensively with their projects moving forward: whether by cutting costs, optimising processes and quality or reducing CO2 emissions. I am delighted that Swisscom is to remain one of our major customers.”
