Beat Krebs, President of the LSA, regrets her resignation: "I would like to sincerely thank Catherine Purgly for her great commitment. With her, we are losing a managing director who has successfully led the association into the future with a great deal of commitment. I would particularly like to mention her commitment to young talent and to the initiatives in the area of sustainability and climate protection. I very much enjoyed working with Catherine and find it a great pity that she is leaving the office, but I also understand the desire for a change."

Catherine Purgly adds: "It has been a great pleasure for me to play a major role in shaping the leadership role of the association and its members over the past eight years, together with a great team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Presidium and the Board for their trust and inspiring collaboration."

At its last meeting, the LSA Board initiated the search for a successor. We are looking for a committed and hands-on personality who feels at home both in the agency world and in the management of an association.
