- 25 years’ experience in corporate publishing
- Collaboration with companies from a variety of sectors
- Journalism, editorial work and translation in several languages
Having completed my degree at the University of Zurich, I began my professional life working with a corporate publishing agency, where I collaborated in a variety of capacities on publications created for companies such as Swissair, Gate Gourmet, Swiss Re, Swiss Life, PricewaterhouseCoopers and UBS.
My tasks in corporate publishing include translation, editing and journalism. In the latter discipline, I am particularly in demand for portraits of important management personalities, combining my knowledge of the corporate world – having been employed as a translator for a management consultant, a bank and an insurer – with my skills as a linguist and an informed, attentive listener in order to show the human side of my interviewees. These have ranged from the Director of Christie’s Europe to the entire secretarial department at PricewaterhouseCoopers’s Zurich offices. I have frequently conducted interviews in German and Italian, producing the final article in English.
My background as an accomplished musician and art historian has also informed my work in corporate publishing and sponsorship, particularly when interviewing artists such as pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy, film director Roman Polanski, flautist James Galway or violinist Christian Tetzlaff, writing articles about corporate-sponsored art exhibitions, editing artistic publications for a credit card company, or translating a series of books about on-site art for a major bank.
