Departure after 19 years


Urs Aellig is leaving LINK after 19 eventful and successful years and, following a business handover phase and a sabbatical, he will be taking up a new professional challenge in the coming year.


Urs Aellig joined LINK in 2000, shortly after completing his geography degree at the University of Basel. Neither the managers at LINK at the time nor Urs Aellig himself would have expected it to be such a long success story for him and LINK, based on, as he himself says, “a chance application” back then. At the same time, Urs Aellig already indicated to his management colleagues 3 years ago that, despite his successful career at LINK, one’s professional life should consist of at least two stages. It was therefore possible to plan Urs’ departure and successor effectively.

On behalf of LINK, we would like to thank Urs sincerely for his excellent, reliable, creative, always clearly structured, and untiring commitment as the head of the social research division. Urs has made his mark in the division in countless ways, has built up and further developed a team and services of the highest quality, and has always participated very constructively in the management of the entire company too.

Thank you, Urs, for 19 successful years of management, development work and passion!

The board of administration and executive board of LINK Marketing Services AG are now pleased to introduce Dr Sabine Frenzel as the new head of the social research division and new member of the executive board. She will succeed Urs Aellig at the beginning of the 4th quarter of 2019. Ms Frenzel brings with her excellent professional qualifications and a great deal of management experience, ready to open another successful chapter for social research at LINK along with her team.

A warm welcome to Sabine and our sincere best wishes!
