SSTH Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality About Us

SSTH Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality was put under new management in 2011.

Dr. Ursula Gehbauer Tichler, a very experienced educator, was recruited for the leadership of the school and together with Marco Haas, who is responsible for the finances and controlling, have dual leadership.

The ownership passed to the Arabella Schweiz and the Schörghuber Group giving the school a stronger connection with the canton of Graubünden. At the same time, the executive board was also reformed, with Albert Niggli as president. Dr. Christoph Juen, CEO of Hotelleriesuisse also joined the board; a further expert in the field of hospitality.
