The Federal Council elects Swiss Post Ltd’s Board of Directors every two years. On the reference date (31 December 2015), it had nine members. The Board of Directors is responsible for implementing the strategic goals, for submitting reports to the Federal Council on their attainment and for providing the latter with the information it needs for verification purposes. The Board of Directors is also governed by the rights and duties set out in the provisions of the Swiss Code of Obligations on the subject of corporate law.
Members do not have any business relationships with Swiss Post or its subsidiaries, nor have they been involved in an executive capacity in Swiss Post Group in the past four years. In accordance with the Postal Organization Act, employees have the right to appropriate representation on the Board of Directors. In 2015, this representation was once again provided by Susanne Blank and Michel Gobet.
After the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors, members are listed in the order in which they took office.
