29.06.2016 – Logitech International announced that its board of directors will ask shareholders to approve the election to the board of Patrick Aebischer, president of the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The election will take place at Logitech’s annual general meeting (AGM) in Lausanne, Switzerland on September 7, 2016.
Long-standing director, Kee Lock Chua, has decided not to stand for re-election to the board at the 2016 AGM when his current term ends. He has been a non-executive member of Logitech’s board of directors since 2000. He is the chair of Logitech’s Nominating Committee and also serves on Logitech’s Audit Committee.
Guerrino De Luca, chairman of Logitech, commented: “Patrick’s transformational tenure as EPFL president has made the school a model for universities around the world, yet this is far from the only attribute to recommend him. He is also a tech entrepreneur and senior leader of a number of Swiss companies, with a global world view and strong strategic experience. As we prepare ourselves to welcome Patrick, I’d also like to thank Kee Lock for his sixteen years of invaluable service to the board and company. He will always remain a friend of Logitech.”
