SBB: Media spokesman Jean-Louis Scherz retires

He served SBB for 46 years, the last 15 of them as media spokesman - and now he is retiring: Jean-Louis Scherz. He will be replaced by 31-year-old Patricia Claivaz from Valais, who will take up the post of SBB Group Spokesperson for French-speaking Switzerland on September 1.


Claivaz is currently responsible for several communications projects at SBB, according to an SBB release Wednesday. She studied political science at the University of Lausanne. She has worked for SBB Communications since April 2005 and has held various positions at both the Berne and Lausanne sites. In recent years, she has managed several communications projects, including the festivities celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Lausanne-Geneva railroad line.

Her predecessor Jean-Louis Scherz was SBB's media spokesman for French and German-speaking Switzerland in Berne for the last 15 years. He worked for SBB for a total of 46 years, holding numerous positions in railroad operations and central services.
