Change in Repower management: Samuel Bontadelli named as successor to Felix Vontobel

September 22, 2017

After more than 30 years with Repower, 25 of which as a member of the Executive Board, Felix Vontobel is stepping down from management and from his position as head of the Service Provision Division. This move is in line with his wish to devote himself to a number of projects and mandates in more depth and also have more time for his private interests. His successor as a member of the Executive Board and head of Service Provision will be Samuel Bontadelli, until now head of Trading.

After more than 30 years with Repower, deputy CEO and COO Felix Vontobel (b. 1958) has decided to reduce his professional commitments somewhat. He will continue to work for Repower, bringing his knowledge and long experience to leading and guiding strategic projects. Added to this he will also continue to perform various mandates for Repower. This move is in line with his wish to devote himself to a number of projects in more depth and have more time again for his private interests.

Felix Vontobel joined what was then Kraftwerke Brusio AG in 1987. Since then he has played a substantial role in shaping the business and its development into what is now Repower AG. "We understand Felix Vontobel's decision and are delighted that Repower will continue to be able to draw on his wealth of know-how," says CEO Kurt Bobst.

The Board of Directors and Executive Board would like to thank Felix Vontobel warmly for his highly valued work and engagement for Repower over the last 30 years, and wish him every success and satisfaction in his new role.

Repower's Board of Directors has elected Samuel Bontadelli to succeed Felix Vontobel as a member of the Executive Board and head of Service Provision. Bontadelli (b. 1979) has been with Repower since 2003, first on the transmission grid side, then as head of the Generation Switzerland unit. Since 2011 he has been head of Trading in Poschiavo. After an apprenticeship as an electromechanical engineer, he first did further training to become an electrical engineer and then, after several years of work experience, earned an Executive MBA from HTW Chur.

Samuel Bontadelli will assume his duties as Felix Vontobel's successor on 1 January 2018. At the same time Lorenzo Pola, until now head of Market Intelligence, will start as the new head of Trading in Poschiavo.
