2015 was a momentous year for Sunrise, defined by our initial public offering (IPO) on February 6. CVC Capital Partner’s (CVC) decision to list Sunrise on the SIX Swiss Exchange has increased both international awareness of the company and the strength of our brand in our home market. As a result, we were able to strengthen our market position throughout the course of the year, and were delighted to welcome Roger Federer on board as our Brand Ambassador. Although it was a year of change, our key values haven’t changed: fairness, transparency and customer orientation are at the heart of our organization and will continue to drive our activities.
2015 WAS A SIGNIFICANT YEAR FOR SUNRISE, DEFINED BY THE IPO IN FEBRUARY.
Our former Chairman Dominik Koechlin sadly passed away unexpectedly in July. He was the first independent member to join the board when CVC made its investment in Sunrise in October 2010. He served as our Chairman until last year, and successfully led Sunrise through its IPO. His passing is a tragic loss for us all, and we extend our most sincere condolences to his family.
