Management Board

Moving RhB forward

The Management Board manages all of the Rhaetian Railway's business – except where tasks have been reserved to the Board of Directors in accordance with the organisational regulations. The members of the Management Board are elected by the Board of Directors.

The director chairs the body, in which the Finance, Infrastructure, Production, Rolling Stock, Sales and Staff/Human Resources divisions are represented. This team generally meets once a week and other members of senior management and experts in their respective fields attend as required.
