I joined the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in September 2017 as Deputy CFO and assumed CFO responsibilities as of February 2018. I have two decades of experience managing the financial operations of major corporations and joined Ludwig from the publicly traded Swiss industrial engineering and manufacturing firm Sulzer Ltd. As post-merger integration manager at Sulzer, I led the integration of GEKA into Sulzer’s business after its acquisition in 2016. Prior to that, I served for a dozen years as CFO of the global Chemtech division of Sulzer, leading a team of 20 professionals responsible for the division’s financial administration and reporting. Before joining Sulzer, I served for six years as the CFO and Chief Information Officer of Bucher Automotive, a division of the Swiss equipment and machine manufacturer Bucher Industries. A native of Switzerland, I obtained my degree in business administration from the University of Applied Science in Zurich.
