Philipp Senn is Nagra’s new Division Head Communication & Public Affairs


The Board of Directors elected Philipp Senn as new Division Head Communication & Public Affairs. The 44-year-old assumed responsibility on 1st September 2021, thereby succeeding Markus Fritschi, who will retire in 2023. Until then, Fritschi remains Nagra’s Deputy CEO.

Philipp Senn has been working for Nagra for around ten years, most recently as Head of Public Affairs and Deputy Division Head. In this position, he was already responsible for the interface between politics, economy and society. “The project of the century of deep geological disposal is in a decisive phase. The upcoming site selection and general licence application will present a special challenge to us over the next few years, also in terms of communication and social policy. I am pleased and honoured to take over responsibility as Division Head during this exciting period”, explains Senn. To this end, he intends to increase online communication as well as dialogue with the regionally affected population and politicians.
