«Everyone knew it was impossible until a fool who did not know came along and did it.»

(author unknown)

This phrase has been with me since the beginning of my professional career. Success is not dependent on external circumstances; it is dependent on one's mind-set and motivation to achieve a goal.

Having concluded my studies in economics with a minor in marketing and service management, I started my professional career at Swisscom working in field service. I quickly rose through the ranks to positions of significant responsibility such as sales manager and later as regional manager. As such, I together with my team was responsible for achieving the company's goals. Moreover, I was responsible for coaching, training, and developing employees. Twelve years later, I decided to embark on a new challenge, taking on the role as Chief Sales Officer at a start-up company, specialising in marketing advertising surfaces in the field of “Digital Out of Home”. Next, I was able to contribute my expertise in the media sector working as a Senior Product Development Manager at Admeira, collaborating on the marketing concept for the launch of Blick TV.

What motivates me most is when I can contribute to both the company’s as well as to a person’s success; when a product or service generates added value for my client and a long-term client relationship is established. The fact that I can coach a person and help them achieve their goals inspires me.

As part of my personal development, I in 2017 decided to train as an Integral Coach (ICI, ECA), which I followed up with a diploma in Stress and Resilience Coaching (ICE, ECA), next I qualified as a Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner.

I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends. My favourite pastimes are nature and working or relaxing in our garden. I love discovering new things and trying out new activities.

I am delighted to accompany and support you at Grass & Partner on your path to professional reorientation.
