Dear Swissintellers

At our 2018 General Assembly, you elected me President of our great association. Thank you for your trust! The tagline for my presidency is : if you think that Intelligence is expensive, consider the price of ignorance 😉

My top three priorities for the association are:

  1. Grow our member base and member engagement, both online and offline,
  2. Foster the collaboration between our Geneva and Zurich franchises,
  3. Increase our organization’s and profession’s visibility to the economic and political audience.


My team and I are working hard to deliver even more added-value to your membership. We want to help our members thrive ! Therefore, our core business will always remain the organisation of top-tier networking events for information professionals and the Swiss intelligence community. Please add the two dates below to your agenda:
