Often times these contacts would result in partnerships for AIESEC in Switzerlandor AIESEC International.Rainer is currently Managing Director with UBS, at Group Human Resources, responsible for Group HRCommunications Management. His involvements with AIESEC date back to 1987 when Rainer became company’scontact/support person at the Local Committee of Basel.Although Rainer has never been in AIESEC, the leadership and the commitment he has been showing over the last17 years has truly been outstanding. There has been a long story of ﬁnancial support from UBS/SBC (Swiss BankCorporation) to AIESEC globally as well as in Switzerland which is strongly inﬂuenced by Rainer’s involvement. Hewas originator of many sponsorships, e.g. in 1997, UBS was main sponsor of AIESEC’s Global Theme Conference atBasel and provider of the conference facilities and in 2003 he encouraged UBS to sponsor AIESEC’s Branding initiativeand redesigning of AIESEC’s online presence.Also mainly due to Rainer’s initiative and commitment, UBS has been twice awarded with the Company ExcellenceAward.It is also a fact that since Strasbourg 1989, he has attended every IC apart from two.

Similarly, he brings in such a valuable historicalperspective in his work in the AI Supervisory Group.Caroline Gertsch, President of AIESEC in Switzerland (2003-2005) is convinced that even though Rainer Kirchhoferhad not the chance to be involved in AIESEC during his time at the University, he still can be considered a trueAIESECer!“He has shown so much support and commitment to AIESEC over the last 17 years as only few other individuals Iknow! He continued to believe in the idea of AIESEC and the people in AIESEC, although he would have had manytimes a reason to give up.
