Swissphone Assets Transfer to Management, Entrepreneurs
Friday, June 21, 2019 | Comments

As part of Swissphone Wireless’ corporate succession arrangements, the shareholdings of the critical messaging and alerting firm will be transferred to the present management team and a group of entrepreneurs from Switzerland and Germany.

The Köchler family, founders and former owners of Swissphone Wireless transferred ownership of the company to the current management team and a group of Swiss and German entrepreneurs, advised by Rigeto Unternehmerkapital. This arrangement is part of the company’s corporate succession plan and takes effect immediately.

2019 is also the company’s 50th anniversary. Helmut and Erika Köchler, both active members of the board of directors until recently, launched the company in 1969 and successfully developed it to become an international provider of alerting and critical messaging solutions.

Swissphone will continue under its existing management. Those responsible for the parent company in Samstagern, as well as the subsidiaries in Germany, Austria, France and the United States, will all continue in their roles. There will be no changes affecting either Swissphone’s customers or workforce, a statement said.

"The support and commitment of investors from the German-speaking region, working in tandem with the present successful management team, has ensured the company will continue on a sustainable footing,” said Angelo Saccoccia, CEO and new co-owner. “Thus, we have put in place the essential prerequisites for consolidating our future market and product leadership, both nationally and internationally, and for effecting the advancement and even expansion of our present growth strategy.”
