Bianca Gähweiler to succeed Prisca Huguenin-dit-Lenoir at the Hotelplan Group

After twelve years as Head of Communications and Media Spokesperson at the Hotelplan Group, Prisca Huguenin-dit-Lenoir has decided to seek a new challenge outside the company. Bianca Gähweiler, currently media spokesperson for Interhome and communications specialist, will take over as her successor in mid-September 2019.


Bianca Gähweiler has been working as a media spokesperson for holiday home agent Interhome since 2017, while also supporting internal communications for the entire Hotelplan Group. The 33-year-old completed her diploma training in journalism at the Swiss School of Journalism MAZ in Lucerne. After working for six years as an editor and presenter at Schaffhausen's Radio Munot, she was project manager for communications at Generis, a company specialising in politics and business. "I am looking forward to this career step, which I will take on with respect and great pleasure," says Bianca Gähweiler. She will report directly to Thomas Stirnimann, CEO Hotelplan Group, from mid-September 2019. 

Markus Fässler is also responsible for internal communications and sustainability, and will deputise for Bianca Gähweiler as media spokesperson in her absence. The search for personnel to complement the communications team has been initiated.

Prisca Huguenin-dit-Lenoir took over as head of Hotelplan Group's communications department in October 2007 and played a key role in building it up. For the last twelve years, she has also worked as a media spokesperson and was voted Switzerland's best press spokesperson three times in a row for the tour operator. The 46-year-old has now decided to seek a new challenge. "The decision to leave the 'Hotelplan family' was a difficult one for me. But I realised that after all this time, I would like to take another look at another company and I am open to different industries," says Prisca Huguenin-dit-Lenoir.

"We are extremely sorry that Prisca Huguenin-dit-Lenoir will be leaving us. She has shaped the communication of the Hotelplan Group over the last twelve years and was always available for employees and also journalists. We sincerely wish her only the best, both privately and professionally, wherever her journey may take her," says Thomas Stirnimann, CEO Hotelplan Group. "At the same time, we are delighted that we have been able to recruit Bianca Gähweiler as an ideal successor within the team to head up Corporate Communications. We already wish her every success in her new role."
