Leadership Event


We are pleased to invite all interested parties to the ECS Leadership Event which will take place in Basel and is kindly hosted at Syngenta’s premises.

During the event also the ECS Leadership Working Group co-chaired by Gabe Shawn Varges and Roman Mazzotta, will be officially launched.


Date 22 April 2015
Time 4.30 pm
Place Syngenta, Schwarzwaldallee 215, Basel

During the event we will tackle the subject by looking at leadership at two levels: leadership from the top and leadership at the level of the compliance office.

While Michel Demaré (Chairman of the Board of Syngenta, Vice Chairman of the Board of UBS, President of SwissHoldings, and former CFO of ABB) will share his experience from an executive leader perspective, Alexander Zinser (Reynolds American), Robert Lutz (swissgrid) and Roman Mazzotta (Syngenta) will address the role of leadership at the level of the compliance officer.

Gabe Shawn Varges will moderate the event.

The event will be followed by an Apéro, which will also offer an opportunity for those who expressed interest in the Working Group to meet and exchange ideas for future activities and events.

The event is free of charge for ECS Members and at a CHF 30 surcharge for Non-members.

Thank you for registering for the event until 17 April 2015.
