MARTIN BÜRKI BECOMES NEW CEO OF SWISSTEACH AG.
With effect from September 1, 2020, Martin Bürki (45) will take over the position of CEO from Heinz Gerber (62), who wants to "cut back" a little for reasons of age and hand it over to the next generation. Gerber had been CEO of Swissteach AG since its foundation and successfully led the company to its current status as a solid e-learning service provider, which has been firmly established for years with well-known customers such as Bosch, Telekom and the Otto Group.
Martin Bürki has been managing director at Gassmann Media AG for the last 12 years and is looking forward to the new challenge: "Swissteach AG is aiming for significant growth in the next few years. With Global Teach we have an outstanding product. I look forward to further establishing the comprehensive e-learning solution together with the strong team".
The federally certified Head of Marketing Communication began his professional career in 1994 at the Berner Zeitung and has 20 years of management experience at executive and management level in the communications and media environment. Before joining Gassmann Media, he was Managing Director of conRadio TV AG for Espace Media in Bern.
"With the change to the e-learning industry, I can bring my management and marketing skills to a future-oriented market, learn new things and give new impulses," says Bürki.
The current CEO Heinz Gerber will continue to contribute his know-how and passion for sales to the company.
