The Board of Directors at Badrutt's Palace Hotel AG streamlines the organization of the traditional house and restructures the top management level. The board appointed Richard Leuenberger as the new Managing Director and transferred the operational responsibility to him.

With the future-oriented restructuring of the top management level, Badrutt's Palace Hotel AG will receive a slimmer organizational model adapted to the size of the hotel with a shorter level of decision-making.

The management now includes only two levels, consisting of Managing Director Richard Leuenberger and his subordinate department heads.

The Board of Directors looks forward to working even more closely with Richard Leuenberger, who has been a General Manager since November 2016 and previously held a leading position in the Engadine luxury hotel from 2008 to 2011.

Yves Gardiol, CEO of Badrutt's Palace Hotel since October 2016, will leave the company. The Board thanks him for his many years of commitment on behalf of the hotel, its guests and employees since 2004 and wishes him all the best for his private life and professional career.

Richard Leuenberger gave thanks to his capacity and his years of close relations with Badrutt's Palace Hotel for continuity in corporate governance, and took over his responsibilities with immediate effect.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Badrutt's Palace Hotel AG, Jürg Domenig, President.
