About me

I’ve always thought outside the box.

As the Speaker of Parliament at school, I dismissed the rector from a meeting for behaving badly. And he actually left the room…

At the University of St. Gallen, I was one of the few students to study political economics. I then studied the Third Way between Capitalism and Communism under Ota Sik, and earned my doctorate. That was in the eighties.

In my long years as president of the church council in my community, I inevitably became a crisis and conflict manager during a time of upheaval.

As a professional trustee and consultant, my specialty is providing support for very complicated, international family situations. And I’ve been doing this for over 25 years. That’s how I learned to look, listen and be patient!

I’ve also had to overcome very difficult family and health challenges. I have put my own house in order.

In short, when it comes to family dynamics and the discussion of values, goals, roles and expectations of different family members, especially in the context of family wealth, I know what I’m talking about.

This is what Atelier FAUCH does.
