Affichage Holding strengthens its management structure


Affichage Holding, market leader in the Swiss "out-of-home" sector which operates in international markets, is to reorganize its management structure with effect from January 1, 2011. Daniel Strobel and Markus Ehrle will join the company. 

Publicly listed Affichage Holding SA has announced that it will streamline its management structure from January 1, 2011 and has named the new members of its management board. In future, the management of the Allgemeine Plakatgesellschaft APG will be based on functional departments controlled directly by members of the management board. Moving from the NZZ Media Group to the new Affichage management board are Markus Ehrle and Daniel Strobel, two managers with proven track records in the Swiss advertising and media market. The date for their move has yet to be determined.

In future, the management board of Affichage Holding will comprise Dr. Daniel Hofer (CEO), Dr. Ulrich von Bassewitz (CFO), Thomas Rainer (International Markets), Walter Oeschger (Logistics), Beat Holenstein (Partner & Product Management), Daniel Strobel (Advertising Market & Subsidiaries Switzerland), Markus Ehrle (Marketing & Business Development) und Oliver Achermann (Corporate Center).

The current managing director of the Allgemeine Plakatgesellschaft APG, Ivan Schultheiss, intends to take advantage of these changes by taking a sabbatical break to undertake further management studies before embarking on a new career path. The board of directors and the members of the management team wish to express their appreciation to Ivan Schultheiss for his successful and dedicated service. He has made a significant contribution to shaping the fortunes of APG in Switzerland in recent years.
