Thomas Helbling appointed Head of Public Affairs at the Swiss Life Group


As of 1 July 2003 the 42-year-old Bernese lawyer Thomas Helbling will assume the newly created position of Head of Public Affairs at the Swiss Life Group. In this capacity his primary concern will be to develop a systematic procedure for the cultivation of the SL Group's relations with political figures and the business community, reporting directly to CEO Rolf Dörig.

Thomas Helbling studied law in Bern and London (LLM). From 1990 to 1995 he worked as an attorney at a law office in Bern, followed by two years at a law office in London. From 1998 Mr Helbling served as personal assistant to Federal Councillor Adolf Ogi, and continued to serve in the same function under Councillor Samuel Schmid following Mr Ogi's departure from the federal government. In July 2001 Mr Helbling was appointed project coordinator for Switzerland and Austria's application to co-host the European football championship in 2008, leading the bid to its successful conclusion in December 2002.
