Personal

On my father’s side I come from an entrepreneurial family and on my mother’s side from a family of musicians. I am married and have three daughters who, like me, grow up bilingual in German and French. I spent 15 years of my life in Paris, where I graduated from high school and studied. The ties there are still very strong, both privately and professionally. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors, sailing in summer and skiing in winter. I am very interested in music, be it as an active jazz pianist and keyboarder, but also as an eclectic listener of any kind of music.

Which characteristic do friends like about you?

Creativity, enthusiasm and commitment.

Your favourite thing to do after work?

Enjoy music of any kind, whether played by yourself, in a concert or just canned.

Where do you gather your energy?

Clearly in nature: In the mountains while skiing, on the water while sailing, preferably in the family…

Your motto of life?

I have adopted the motto of my Grande Ecole: “Apprendre à oser”, which can be translated as “Learning to dare”.
