In addition to my board membership at Achiko (ISIN CH0522213468), I am also involved in 2 "Fintech for Good" projects, currently in stealth mode.

I am a Fintech allrounder, with a preference for “pro bono" endeavours, encompassing either societal or environmental impact. My career in financial services includes a corporate tenure and a stint in innovation, yet I enjoy spending time in young companies and help getting them off the ground and beyond. I compare myself to a chess player in that I feel at ease researching, decrypting complexities in given situations and developing strategies around them in the early stages, yet I am also hands-on, personally taking charge of certain areas in the companies I work with (marketing, business development and fundraising mostly) provided I can use technology to that end. Technology fascinates me, from a "macro" perspective, in how it can be used to reinvent and improve this world we live in - including finances - but also on the "micro" level to optimise productivity amongst other things.

Key Skills:
Conceptual thinking & analytical mindset | strategising | 360˚communication | empathy | problem solving | focussed delivery | negotiating & influencing | relationship building & collaboration | cultural compatibility | fluency in EN/FR/IT/DE
