Basel-Mulhouse Airport: election of Mr Luc GAILLET as President of the Board of Directors


During an extraordinary meeting held on 19 September 2018, the members and represented members of the Board of Directors of Basel-Mulhouse Airport unanimously elected Luc GAILLET as their new President. Luc GAILLET is an elected member of the Alsace Eurometropolitan Chamber of Industry and Commerce. He succeeds Jean-Pierre LAVIELLE, who died on 2 August 2018 and who received a tribute from the Board of Directors at the same meeting.

On 9 August, 2018, Mr GAILLET was appointed member of the Board of Directors of Basel-Mulhouse Airport as a representative of the Alsace Eurometropolitan Chamber of Industry and Commerce by order of the French Ministry of Ecology and Solidarity Transition. Since the franco-swiss approval process has now been completed, Mr GAILLET has taken up his appointment on the Board of Directors on 17 October 2018.

A graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique in 1973, Mr GAILLET joined the Corps of Bridges and Roads.
On leaving the French National School of Civil Engineering (Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées), he spent eight years at the Departmental Public Works Directorate of the Upper Rhine.
Within this capacity, from 1977 to 1979 he was project manager for the extension of the main runway at Basel-Mulhouse Airport. Since 1983 he has held different managerial posts in various sectors (including textiles, mechanical engineering, plastics and rubber). In 1997, he became President of the company Papeterie ZUBER RIEDER, of which he is a shareholder since 2002.

As project manager, he headed the new EuroAirport rail link project from 2011 to April 2018. Mr GAILLET is an elected representative of the Alsace Eurometropolitan and Grand Est Chambers of Industry and Commerce and chairs their respective industrial commissions. He also chairs the Development and Infrastructures commission of the South Alsace Mulhouse delegation of the Alsace Eurometropolitan Chamber of Industry and Commerce and is president of the association Société Industrielle de Mulhouse.

The Board of Directors is delighted to welcome Mr Luc GAILLET to the Board and wishes him every success in his new duties, which also include membership of the Airport’s Management Committee and the Trinational Advisory Board (Beirat).
