Dr. Uli Sigg
Born on April 29, 1946, Uli Sigg trained as a business journalist. He joined the Ringier group management in 1984 and just two years later became Delegate of the Board of Directors. From 1995 to 1998, Mr. Sigg served as Switzerland's ambassador to China and North Korea also serving as founding chairman of the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce. His profound knowledge of Asia significantly facilitated Ringier's first steps into Vietnam and China. Today, Mr. Sigg is Deputy Chairman of the Ringier Board of Directors, a position he has held since 2003, having served as Chairman from 1999 until 2003. Sharing Michael Ringier's avid interest in contemporary art, Uli Sigg is one of the most eminent collectors of works by Chinese artists.
