“For the last 25 years as an IT/IS engineer I assumed different roles such as: Network administrator, Helpdesk Manager, Software Developer, Video Conference Manager, Technical Trainer, Databases administrator, Websites & CMS developer and administrator, Project Manager with a broad experience working in culturally diverse teams in international environments. I have worked in European, Latin American and Asian environments. Recently, after a successful experience in Asia, I’ve returned to Switzerland and am eager to share this experience with national companies. My main asset is the ability to digest complex problems and to solve them in a comprehensive manner utilizing business and technical experience. This ability enables me to communicate client needs into technical solutions.”
