Hans Blaser has strengthened the Board of Directors of Hoppler AG since 2015. During this time, we have mastered numerous challenges and gone through changes. Thanks to his expertise, experience and ability to find constructive solutions, we have successfully navigated around numerous pitfalls. I know Hans Blaser as a solution-oriented sparring partner who, with his empathy and flexibility, finds pragmatic solutions in difficult situations and then pursues and implements them with determination. I hope we can continue to benefit from his great know-how and motivating personality for a long time to come.
