Press Release

René Zahnd – CEO of Swiss Prime Site AG – to Join Supervisory Board of
DIC Asset AG

René Zahnd (aged 53) was court-appointed to join as new member of the Supervisory Board of DIC Asset AG as of 21 May 2019 and through the end of the next annual general meeting.

René Zahnd has been Chief Executive Officer of Swiss Prime Site AG since 1 January 2016. René Zahnd started his professional career with the law firm of Bratschi Emch & Partner in Bern and Zurich. He moved on to serve in a number of senior positions with real estate companies and property developers, including Implenia from 2009 to 2015 where he eventually became head of the Modernisation & Development unit and a member of the Group Executive Board. He then joined Swiss Prime Site AG. René Zahnd succeeds Ulrich Höller, who had resigned from his Supervisory Board mandate.

Prof. Dr. Gerhard Schmidt, chairman of the Supervisory Board of DIC Asset AG, had this to say about the change: “On behalf of the entire Supervisory Board and the members of the Management Board, I would very much like to thank Ulrich Höller for the always great and successful collaboration, first as CEO, later as member of the Supervisory Board. Mr. Höller significantly contributed to build the company and stayed with the company as a member of the Supervisory Board after his retirement as CEO. Mr. Zahnd with his expertise as CEO of a large listed real estate company will contribute his experience from this position to the Supervisory Board. We are very happy to have won Mr. Zahnd over for the position in our board and we are sure that we have thereby greatly strengthened and supplemented the expertise in our Supervisory Board.”
