Thank you, Peter!

16.09.2020 – Remo Gysin, President of the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad

Peter Wüthrich retired from the Executive Board of the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) on 30 June 2020, after having fought the corner of the Swiss Abroad with great passion and energy for over 20 years.

Following his first tenure from 1988 to 2008, we were delighted when Peter took up the challenging position of treasurer for a second time in 2017. In this role, Peter provided the Council of the Swiss Abroad (CSA), the OSA Executive Board, and the OSA administrative office with expert advice on financial matters and much more besides. His sound legal knowledge was also of great help to us. Peter’s tremendous professional expertise enabled him to act as our in-house ‘firefighter’ who was able to solve problems and provide practical tips. Famously, he even assisted us a number of times from his sailing trips in the Mediterranean – truly above and beyond the call of duty.

On behalf of the Swiss Abroad and all CSA delegates and OSA Executive Board members, I would like to thank Peter for his wonderful, unfailing service. It was a pleasure to work with him. We will always treasure fond memories of his time.

All the best on your retirement, Peter. We wish you good health, favourable winds at sea, and every happiness for the future.
