Zurich - After heading up the foundation for five years, Stephan Neff is resigning as CEO of myclimate at the end of September. Together with his wife, he is taking over a diving center in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The search for a successor is now underway.

The foundation myclimate will be under new management from October 1 after current CEO Stephan Neff announced his resignation. As Neff has now announced, he will be taking on a new challenge as the owner of a small business in the Canadian province of British Columbia: together with his wife, he will be running a diving center and B&B in the Campbell River region with the aim of “sharing the beauty of the underwater world with others”. The search for his successor is now underway.

According to Neff, they will assume the reigns with the foundation in a good place. In recent years, myclimate has grown from a pioneer with 70 employees to a professional foundation employing 170 specialists in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Today, myclimate is one of the most important climate organizations in the German-speaking world.

In order to deal with strong growth in all three countries, myclimate restructured the organization into three separate country units in the fall of 2022. Kathrin Dellantonio, who has been with myclimate almost right from the very start, was promoted to Managing Director Switzerland, while Beat Nussbaumer joined the Management Committee as Head of Digitization and Innovation. Myclimate was founded around 20 years ago by students from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH). ce/mm
