Now it is clear who is the successor of Andreas Meyer to the top of the SBB . Vincent Ducrot, since 2011, at the top of the Freiburg's transport holdings, TPF, will be the new chief.
Ducrot is a Surprise. The 57-Year-old, no one on the Radar was. He was in the past eight years, head of Freiburg's transport holdings TPF. Prior to that, he was for a long time in the SBB. From 1999 to 2011 as chief of the long-distance transport division. For a short time, he tracks led on an interim basis the total passenger transport by the Federal government.
Lead at Bombardier-procurement
When he moved in 2011 to the TPF, don't let it take the SBB to communicate the successes of Ducrot. A point is all. "Under the leadership Ducrots the purchase of 59 double-deck trains, the largest vehicle procurement in the history of the SBB, for example, was prepared." This procurement, therefore, the accident-prone double-Decker trains from Bombardier, has developed into a veritable Disaster.
Ducrot is a trained electrical engineer EPFL, and was already entered in 1993, in the case of the SBB and was then head of IT-development. After that, he climbed the career ladder steadily high. The last few years, he worked under Andrew Meyer, who took over in 2007, the chief Item. Ducrots ascent to the Manager happened under Meyer's predecessor, Benedikt Weibel.
Meyer's uncertain future
What is the outgoing Andreas Meyer after his time in the SBB, is still unclear. On a Post in a Board of Directors of the SBB partner company, he refused, according to a report in this newspaper. He didn't want to leave the impression that he mixed up his Position as CEO of the SBB, with future mandates.
currently there are no specific mandates that he take the eye. "I'm going to take a few months time, after my departure, other activities watch. I have deliberately chosen my resignation so that I can make something New," Meyer said in November. He had a ban even after its time in the SBB, not a competition.
The big Interview with the SBB-President After the resignation announcement of the rail-heads we spoke at the Beginning of September with Monika Ribar on the leadership style of Andreas Meyer, but also about driverless trains and ticket prices.
