Sika’s Jan Jenisch wins CEO of the Year award

08 September 2015

Sika CEO Jan Jenisch has won the award for best CEO of the year beating competition from the largest listed companies in Switzerland. The ranking is compiled by Obermatt, a Swiss financial research firm focused on indexing company performance.

The Obermatt CEO of the Year rankings measure a company’s performance against that of its competitors. The performance metrics that are monitored are: sales growth, operating performance (EBITDA) and total shareholder return.

The top ranking of Sika is based on its strong results of the past three years – the best ever in Sika’s history. Sika outperformed companies such as Geberit, Lindt & Sprüngli, Barry Callebaut and Givaudan while others such as Roche, Nestlé or Novartis did not reach the top ten ranking.

Jan Jenisch acknowledged Sika’s global employees, saying: “Friends, this award goes to all of you and we would like to congratulate you for making Sika one of the most successful companies. You consequently implemented Sika’s STRATEGY 2018 and made our GROWTH MODEL work. Please extend our compliments to your teams and employees who all contributed to this success.”
