Michael Hansen, Head of the Swiss Life Network, outlines the journey he will pursue to build the future with the Swiss Life Network Partners, focused on communication, transparency and relationships.

Dear Reader,

As Theo Iaponas wrote in the last editorial, 2015 was an eventful year for us. I can guarantee that 2016 and 2017 will be just as eventful.

Huge steps have already been taken in order to make the Swiss Life Network ready for the opportunities ahead. I am very pleased to be back in Swiss Life and to continue the journey with my colleagues, Network Partners, global clients and brokers.

This will be a journey taking the Network to the next level. Our absolute top priority will be to deliver outstanding service to our clients. With my background as a Network Partner, I believe I know what our clients expect from Network Partners, and what our Network Partners expect from the Network.

Based on feedback from all our stakeholders, we will be focusing on communication, transparency, people, relationships and of course, new and existing business opportunities. Together, we will agree and bring to life our common strategy: to grow locally and globally.

This newsletter gives you an opportunity to learn more about our views looking ahead. You can also read some of our Network Partners’ local news and pick up some useful tips in our article on multicultural awareness.

Thank you in advance to our multinational clients, consultant and broker colleagues, and Network Partners for your past and future support, input and feedback. I am truly honored to be back working for and with you.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Hansen
CEO Swiss Life Network
