Two women make up the Migros in front of the Gretchen question

of The 23. March is for the Migros a fateful day: At the delegate Assembly, the new Chairman of the Board of Migros is selected and thus setting the course for the future. The candidates could hardly be more different. The initiative, direct and quick-thinking comes at the end of Jeannine Pilloud externally. You should stand up for change; the lecturer, and many years of Migros-wife Ursula Nold for a preserving course.

That it stands for renewal and Tempo, is also Pillouds Argument for her candidacy – only you put it more diplomatic: "There are new challenges, not only in digital but also in the international area. According to national competitors such as Coop and stationary competitors such as Aldi and Lidl, as well as global corporations such as Amazon, which must consist it increasingly." Now, it is crucial to create a national platform in this environment. You have a clear idea of where Migros had. The former head of passenger traffic at SBB, but also to the special DNA of the group: "the values of The Migros are one of the reasons why I am interested in the Position," said Pilloud, referred to as "Migros child has always been". You've proven in the SBB, that the balancing act between local Rooting, national identity and international competitiveness. Last Pilloud, SBB was delegated for the public TRANSPORT industry development.

With its 23 members, the panel occurs at all homogeneous.

Pillouds against player Ursula Nold chaired for ten years the Assembly of delegates of the Federation of Migros-genossenschafts-Bund and is well connected. This brings you to your comrade-in-arms have the advantage that they can lobby for themselves. As Pilloud externally their campaign strategically aims to operate, it is apparently still unclear. It would be up to the administration to advertise for Pilloud. After all, she has sent the SBB-wife as the official candidate in the race. However, with its 23 members, the panel occurs at all homogeneous.

Nold sees himself less as a Transformatorin because as a mediator. According to carefully worded: "There is a certain degree of cultural change will be necessary, and one of the most important tasks the President will be a consensus in the Migros community, to support the operational managers in the implementation of the strategy." The former teacher is considered to be a Team-player that likes to get a Geschenkli on the Desk of your colleagues and you to tile writes to hear as it is. All of this fits in with the Migros culture.

The President is stronger than in the past Just a sparring partner

: The sympathetic, but, due to the cumbersome culture of the group is put to the test, the financial pressure increases. How do people know, is supposed to be the year 2018 under the dash and everything else as well. The results are on 26. March presents. The Department of Commerce, in which the subsidiaries are pooled, is said to have written according to different sources an even larger loss than 2017. At the time, he was 83 million Swiss francs. The ten regional cooperatives have a large achievement gap. This requires measures as drastic. The Bureau receives under this perspective, a stronger form of weight. The President will increasingly need a sparring partner for the business line.

But to enforce rapid changes in the Migros difficult. "The cooperative structure allows it to decide on measures, and this top-down enforce like in other businesses," says Ursula Nold and speaks of the "consensus" was needed. Pilloud is likely to approach researchers. For the time being, but you have to win the 110 delegates. "I'm going to prepare myself in the next few weeks, seriously," she says. Intimidating the Migros experience of competitor Nold? "I met the other candidate professionally, they have learned but in the meantime, short to know," says Pilloud.
