With effect from 1 October 2018, Gregor Bäurle will assume the function of Swiss National Bank (SNB) delegate for regional economic relations for the Central Switzerland region.
He succeeds Walter Näf, who is taking on a new position, representing the SNB in the Swiss delegation to the OECD in Paris as of 1 January 2019.
Bäurle went on to work as an energy market analyst for a company in Central Switzerland. He has been employed at the SNB since 2010, most recently as economic advisor in the Economic Analysis (Switzerland) team. He is also an Associate Lecturer at the University of Bern.
The SNB’s eight delegates for regional economic relations represent the SNB in the various regions of Switzerland. They maintain regular contact with companies from different industries, and provide the Governing Board with information about the economic situation. They also have the task of briefing their regions about the SNB’s policies.
