A committee consisting of members of the executive boards of the Jungfraubahn Holding AG and Berner Oberland-Bahnen AG has been engaged in the search for a successor. Now follows the next stage: advertisements will be placed in various German and French-speaking Swiss newspapers so as to reach as wide a circle of potential candidates as possible.

The search is on for an experienced person with managerial and business acumen, who will ensure the financial success of the company in a competitive environment.
