WETZIKON, Switzerland — May 4, 2018 — Loepfe Brothers Ltd. has announced the appointment of Daniel Link as CEO effective May 1, 2018. Maurizio Wermelinger, the current CEO, will retire but will remain as an advisor for a limited period of time to ensure a smooth transition.
The management of Loepfe takes the opportunity to thank Wermelinger for his valuable contribution for the company. He has guided Loepfe successfully over the past 10 years, particularly during periods of difficult economic situations in the textile industry.

Under his aegis, several new instruments and services have been successfully developed and integrated into the portfolio.
Link is an experienced leader in the textile industry. He holds a Master in Engineering from EPFL, Lausanne, and an MBA in General Management from the University of St. Gallen.

In the last 8 years he successfully served as CEO of Bräcker AG. Loepfe is excited to welcome Daniel Link. With his well-founded skills and long-standing competences he is the ideal person to join the team and drive the next phase of growth for the company.
