Baloise congratulates Karin Keller-Sutter on her election to the Swiss Federal Council

Basel, December 5, 2018. Karin Keller-Sutter, a member of the Board of Directors of Baloise, was today elected to the Swiss Federal Council in the first round. As required by law, she will therefore be stepping down from the Board of Directors of Bâloise Holding Ltd on 31 December 2018.

Dr Andreas Burckhardt, Chairman of the Board of Directors, is delighted for Karin Keller-Sutter but is also sorry to be losing a capable, level-headed and prudent member of the Board of Directors. “During her six-year tenure on Baloise’s Board of Directors, Karin Keller-Sutter has provided outstanding service, regularly contributing insights from society and the world of politics to our discussions and looking at matters from the customer’s perspective. The public’s perception of Baloise has always been very important to her. I would like to thank her for all her hard work. On behalf of the entire Baloise Group and, especially, the Board of Directors of Bâloise Holding Ltd, I congratulate Karin Keller-Sutter on her election to the Federal Council and wish her every success in this public office, which carries considerable responsibility,” said Andreas Burckhardt.

Baloise is a committed advocate of the Swiss milizsystem, where public offices are held by volunteers, and the Company encourages its employees – whatever their function or position – to play an active role in society. This makes it all the more pleasing that, following her political career under the milizsystem, Karin Keller-Sutter has now been elected to the Swiss national government.
