Christoph Mäder takes over the Presidency of Economiesuisse

Climate clause activists will remember that for eighteen years he was a member of the management of the Basel agrochemical group Syngenta; the keen eye of observers of Swiss politics, meanwhile, stopped on the line of his curriculum vitae which indicates his tenure as director at Ems-Chemie. Long run by Christoph Blocher, the company in Graubünden is now run by the daughter of the UDC’s tutelary figure, Magdalena Martullo-Blocher.

The Economiesuisse committee, for its part, was convinced by “the personality, availability and representativeness” of Christoph Mäder, summarizes Bernard Rüeger, member of the executive committee of the umbrella organization of Swiss companies. Aged 61, the Aargau lawyer was elected Thursday to succeed the Zurich resident Heinz Karrer, who resigned after seven years as president of the employers’ organization.
