Dr Hofmann is ideally suited to the role of independent representative on the Board of Directors, and we are delighted to welcome him on board. As a notary and lawyer, he strengthens the company and forges links with the federal government and the cantons – our most important business partners. The broad experience of Stephan Hänseler as our new Chairman and Daniel Schmucki as our new Board member also makes them ideal additions to SIX Terravis Ltd.
