The Board of Directors has appointed Lucius Gerig (35) as the new Head of Division Switzerland and a member of Stadler Group's Executive Board with effect from 1 January 2023. He succeeds Markus Bernsteiner, who will take over the function of Group CEO from Peter Spuhler. From now on, Peter Spuhler will focus on the chairmanship of the Board of Directors. Lucius Gerig will represent the largest division of the Stadler Group on the Group's Executive Board.

With the appointment of Lucius Gerig, Stadler will continue the generational change on the Group Executive Board that has been initiated in the past few years. Lucius Gerig has been with Stadler since 2014. He initially helped Markus Bernsteiner to build up the Division Components before taking direct responsibility for the Corporate Development unit under the then Group CEO Peter Spuhler. In this role, he was instrumental in the successful acquisition of what is now Stadler Rail Valencia S.A.U. and in the founding of the Angelstar joint venture, the cornerstone of today’s Division Signalling. In 2019, he took over the function of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Division Central Europe. Since December 2020, he has held his current position as CFO of Division Switzerland, which he will lead as CEO in the future. Lucius Gerig has a Master of Arts in Business Innovation from the University of St. Gallen (HSG) and a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship & New Business Venturing from the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM).

“In Lucius Gerig, we are pleased to have found an extremely well-qualified new head for our largest division from within our own ranks. Lucius Gerig has an excellent network in the Stadler Group and has successfully demonstrated his entrepreneurial strengths and strategic foresight in numerous management roles. The Board of Directors is convinced that it has made the right choice for the management of Division Switzerland,” says Peter Spuhler, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Group CEO a.i. of Stadler.

Division Switzerland comprises the Stadler plants in Bussnang, St. Margrethen, Altenrhein, Erlen, and Salt Lake City. Together they employ around 3,800 people.
