Stefan Nünlist networks with employees and projects.

Stefan Nünlist has been the new Chairman of the Board of Directors of cablex since the beginning of the year. Nünlist previously held the position of Head of Communications at Swisscom for over 20 years and was a member of the Group Executive Board. He took over the position on the cablex Board of Directors from Eugen Stermetz, the Chief Financial Officer of Swisscom.

Stefan Nünlist's first few months in his new position were all about "meeting and greeting". With a great deal of passion and curiosity, he visited employees from various business areas and familiarised himself with the areas of activity at cablex. 

Smart energy solutions, network construction and civil work.  

In Lucerne, Nünlist gained some insight into two projects from the "Energy Management" division. He is very interested in intelligent installations and sustainable energy concepts. His visit focussed on smart meter installations and a tour of a building that cablex has equipped with photovoltaic modules and battery storage for a business customer.  

Even though Stefan Nünlist is very familiar with the telecommunications sector after more than 20 years at Swisscom, he didn't miss the opportunity to visit a Swisscom central office – with a completely new perspective on things. The on-site network construction team gave him an insight into cablex's areas of activity. Starting with actual optical fibre cable, the familiarisation tour finally led to the end point of the line in the customer's connection box.  

A visit to the civil work site in Unterentfelden was also on the programme. By laying the cable pipes, this division provides the structural conditions for installing the optical fibre cable. There was also enough time for a test drive with the excavator: and we can reveal that the new Chairman of the Board of Directors did very well.

Who is Stefan Nünlist?
