ALSO strengthens Group Management
General Counsel and Senior Vice President HR becomes member of the Group

For several years, the Executive Committee of ALSO Holding AG has been
working very successfully in a matrix organisation consisting of the
responsible managers of the 23 ALSO countries as well as the Senior Vice
Presidents of the various specialist areas. During this time, the team has
achieved excellent results, both in terms of regional expansion,
strengthening of the market position and the development of the 3 business
models Supply, Solutions and Service. This successful course requires
reinforcements within the Group Management. As has already happened several
times in the past, selected members of the Executive Committee are appointed
for this purpose.

Current activities focus on dealing with the different legal systems in the
newly added countries, mergers and acquisitions, service level agreements
and the support of new business models such as It-as-a-Service. Effective
immediately, the ALSO Group has therefore appointed its General Counsel and
SVP Human Resources, Thomas Meyerhans, as a member of the Group Management.
Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX:ALSN): «Through his work
in the Executive Committee, Thomas Meyerhans has qualified for this position
over the past years. With his expertise, he will make an important
contribution to the further development of the company from both a regional
and technological perspective. »

After studying law in Heidelberg, Lausanne and Mainz, Meyerhans pursued his
professional career in three international commercial law firms before
joining ALSO. The future focus of the lawyer's work, in addition to heading
the Group Legal Department, will be to support the Board of Directors in
close cooperation with a Swiss law firm. In addition, he will continue to
head the Center of Competence for HR and drive forward the digitization of
the legal and HR departments.
