The Board of Directors of the Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality (SSTH) in Passugg has a new leader: Dr. iur. Jürg Domenig replaces André Witschi as the President of the Board.

Dr. iur. Jürg Domenig, Member of the SSTH’s Board of Directors since 2014, was elected to become President of the Board. A lawyer residing in Chur, Domenig specializes in legal matters pertaining to the hotel industry and has been advising the head office of hoteller-iesuisse Graubünden, the hotel association of Canton Grisons, for a number of years. As a result of this long involvement, Domenig is a recognized industry expert with access to a broad network of contacts. His other roles include President of the Board of Directors of Badrutt’s Palace Hotel and HOTELA, the Swiss hotel industry’s social insurance service pro-vider. A board member of Gastgewerbliche Fachschule Graubünden since 1995, Domenig has long played an active role contributing to SSTH’s educational issues.

Previous President of the Board André Witschi thinks the time is right for a change. He had been instrumental in shaping the new strategic direction of SSTH. Now it will be up to Domenig to implement the new strategy. As President of the Board of Governors of Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, André Witschi will continue to be associated with SSTH. In addition, he plans to focus on his duties on the Boards of Directors and Governors of other organi-zations.

Michael Hartmann, Managing Director of SSTH: “With Jürg Domenig, we have a recognized expert at the top. He has a holistic understanding of the requirements of the hotel indus-try and is able to integrate this knowledge into training the next generation of hotel spe-cialists. We want to get even closer to the market in order to achieve our primary goal: become the top provider of practical and theoretical training of hotel industry leaders.”
