Board of Directors

To support the development of his company and strengthen the Board of Directors, David Lizzola, Chairman, has surrounded himself with Jean-Charles Turrian, company director, who becomes Vice-Chairman, Maurice Viscomi, entrepreneur, co-founder of Viscom System SA, and Dominique Locher, CEO of LeShop.ch from 2013 to 2017, entrepreneur, investor and business consultant, who become directors. Their skills will enable the group to continue to develop and refine its vision and strategy.

Léguriviera Groupe, a company active in the fruit and vegetable trade in French-speaking Switzerland, headed by its founder David Lizzola, has experienced significant growth in its business over the past few years. This has been achieved both through the development of its customer base, thanks to an important network and a strong commercial presence on the market, and through the acquisition of other companies active in the same field. Léguriviera Groupe is the leader in the wholesale fruit and vegetable market, with a staff of nearly 250 employees, 2,500 customers, more than 1,000 deliveries every day and a turnover of more than 65 million francs.

The fresh fruit and vegetable sector is not immune to the strong economic pressure and competition, particularly from the large groups operating on a national scale. Léguriviera Groupe has grown steadily since its creation. In order to maintain this capacity for growth, it enthusiastically welcomes the expertise of experienced professionals who are well versed in the challenges of an SME.
