My career at PageGroup started in Lyon, France, in June 2004. I was hired to (re)launch the IT department. The dotcom bubble made this a very difficult task. In January 2006 I was promoted to Senior Consultant, managing two employees. In October 2007, I transferred to Michael Page Geneva and took on the task of setting up the IT department there. That was a very special experience. The initially very profitable department was hit hard by the 2008–2009 crisis. In April 2010, I was promoted to Manager and was responsible for the Interim department at Michael Page. I became an Executive Manager in July 2011, and in January 2012 took over three additional new departments – Engineering, Procurement & Supply Chain, and Property & Construction. In July 2013, I was appointed Director at Page Personnel in Geneva and made a member of the Swiss Executive Board.
I am responsible for the operating result and development of our offices in Geneva and Lausanne. My tasks include recruiting and developing staff, creating and implementing business strategies, the direct management of various departments and responsibility for sales through client acquisitions. As a member of the Executive Board of the Swiss group, I take strategic decisions, lead important projects and am responsible for day-to-day business across the whole of Switzerland.
Set yourself goals (6 months, 12 months or 18 months) and do everything to achieve them
Invest all of your energy, keep fighting and never give up. You are responsible for your future
Believe in your team and in yourself, but always remain humble. And never forget: treat others as you would like to be treated yourself
