Media releases Changes to the Board of Directors of Bâloise Holding Ltd
Basel, December 17, 2021. The 2022 Annual General Meeting of Bâloise Holding Ltd will see some changes to the membership of the company’s Board of Directors. After serving eleven successful years on the Board of Directors of Bâloise Holding Ltd, in the case of Dr Andreas Beerli, and ten years for Thomas Pleines, both have decided not to stand for re-election at the next Annual General Meeting on 29 April 2022. The Board of Directors has nominated Claudia Dill and Dr Maya Bundt for election to the two vacant seats at the upcoming AGM.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to express my deep gratitude to Andreas Beerli and Thomas Pleines for their many years of invaluable work on the Board of Directors and in its committees. With their comprehensive knowledge derived from decades of working in the insurance industry they have played a crucial role in shaping the fortunes of the company while maintaining sound judgement and foresight at all times. Most recently, Andreas Beerli was Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors as well as heading the Audit and Risk Committee. Foremost among Thomas Pleines’ many contributions to the success of Baloise were his expertise in insurance sales and his leadership of the Remuneration Committee. We wish both of our colleagues all the best for the future. Baloise is going to miss them,” says Dr Thomas von Planta, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors is nominating two women for election at the next Annual General Meeting on 29 April 2022, whose expert knowledge of the insurance business and digital change processes will be a welcome addition to the Board. 

Claudia Dill studied business administration at the University of St. Gallen and holds an MBA from the University of Rochester/Bern. She has a proven track record in finance and insurance, having worked, among others, for Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank and Credit Suisse in the areas of management reporting, auditing and risk management. From 1999 to 2020, she worked for the Zurich Insurance Group in a range of managerial positions in Zurich, New York and São Paulo, most recently as Chief Executive Officer for the Latin American business while she was a member of the Corporate Executive Committee. Since 2021, Claudia Dill has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Finnish Nordea Bank Abp.

Maya Bundt has a degree in geoecology and a doctorate in environmental science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Since 2003, she has been working for the reinsurance company Swiss Re in a variety of roles. These include heading the Cyber & Digital Solutions department, and she is currently Cyber Practice Leader as well as chairing the Swiss Re Cyber Council. Before joining Swiss Re, Maya Bundt was a management consultant with Boston Consulting Group. Once she is elected to the Board of Directors of Bâloise Holding Ltd by the Annual General Meeting, Bundt will give up her operational activities in the reinsurance industry
Maya Bundt is a member of the Board of Directors of APG SGA AG and Valiant Bank AG.
 
“We are delighted to be adding the expertise of Claudia Dill and Maya Bundt to the Baloise Board of Directors, which will also make it more diverse. Ms Dill has worked in the core insurance business at international level and has a proven track record as an insurance industry expert. Dr Bundt has enormous expertise in the field of digitalisation with a focus on cyber security. The skills that both of these nominees offer Baloise will play a significant role during the next phase of our strategy, Simply Safe: Season 2,” says Thomas von Planta.
