With regards to the event, Dr. Dirk Craen, president of EU Business School said, “we are honored that Mr. Hongler has agreed to take time out from his busy schedule to join us. He will be sharing with our students the challenges of the insurance industry, and insights into how La Mobilière is tackling them. We are excited that our students will have this opportunity to learn from one of Switzerland’s most highly-regarded CEOs.”
