Team and organisation

SUISA is organised as a co-operative structured in three divisions. "Operations" takes care of SUISA's day-to-day operations, its members and clients. "Regulations" is responsible for the legal basis such as the tariffs and the distribution rules. "Services" is responsible for administration and organisation - this includes, for example, communication, IT, finance and human resources. 

Executive Committee

A three-member Executive Committee is responsible for the operational management and further development of our business activities. To this end, it works closely with the different Board Committees. The Executive Committee is elected by the Board of Directors of the co-ooperative.

  • Irène Philipp Ziebold

Board of Directors

Our 15 board members come from different language regions of Switzerland and represent different musical professions and styles. The Board of Directors manages and oversees the co-operative. The Board  usually meets four times a year; board members  are also all members of one of the three Board Committees. The Board is elected by the General Meeting for a four-year term of office.
