ZURICH: Swissair has named Rainer Meier as its corporate
The Swiss airline and leisure group - SairGroup's best-known subsidiary
- has handed Meier the brief in place of Beatrice Tschanz, who resigned
towards the end of last month after four years with the firm. Meier was
previously Tschanz's deputy.
Former journalist Meier has initially been tasked with helping
communicate the rebranding of Swissair, which recently changed its
corporate name from SairGroup.
SairGroup chairman Mario Corti announced the name-change towards the end
of last month at a shareholder meeting held at Zurich Airport.
He also announced that the group - which has recently suffered
disappointing financial results - would be selling off its holdings in
two French regional carriers, AOM and Air Liberte.
