Zurich (ots) - Peter Silberschmidt, Managing Director of ERG (Swiss Export Risk Guarantee), is to join Euler Hermes, Switzerland's leading credit insurer. Peter Silberschmidt has been active for Euler Hermes since the beginning of May 2006, and will primarily be involved in the Business Development and Client Relations areas. "I look forward to the new position with a strong partner," comments Peter Silberschmidt.
For Jules Kappeler, Director of Sales & Commercial at Euler Hermes Switzerland, collaboration with the former head of ERG is a stroke of good luck: "We are delighted that we have been able to gain Peter Silberschmidt with his extensive experience in the export field." "The timing in particular is perfect," adds J_rn Volk, Managing Director of Euler Hermes Switzerland. "Many export-oriented companies now realise that credit insurance is a modern and efficient risk-hedging tool for the export business." This trend is leaving its mark.
