The auditor of the future: a strategic partner for a forward-looking board – by Lisa Watson, Sophie Morin, Fabien Bryois and Alexandre Buga (Deloitte Switzerland)

By the long term I mean the next 30 to 50 years. This applies to all businesses not only the ones that are long-term by nature.”
Beat Hess, Chairman

 “A board of directors should be well-balanced, master the broader challenges and the technical subjects. It is important to periodically review the combined competences and required profiles in order to identify any necessary adjustments.”
Jacques de Watteville, Chairman

“In the context of digital transformation, information technology (IT) skills are of importance. Nevertheless, based on my personal experience, I believe that the major changes all companies have to make are much more closely linked to their corporate culture than to information technology. Having board members with experience in digital transformation and innovation are beneficial for its success, more than IT skills.”
Ingrid Deltenre, Board member[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
