About Us

Culture and values

Peter Drucker said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” We subscribe to this point of view, and since our creation have been building a distinct identity that represents who we are and what we do. These are the key elements of our unique Stucki culture.

We live these principles daily and guide our decisions by them. They are not just pretty decoration for our office walls.

These elements describe who we are as a company. They are so important we work on them regularly and assess our alignment to them monthly.

The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you

Professional Career

Having competed in professional sports since a young age, I grew up witnessing the strength of human courage & power of teamwork.

These experiences have led me to believe in combining positivity & empathy with personal development.

Having led best-in-class senior executive & leadership programs at IMD for the past 5 years, I believe in a holistic approach for fostering self-growth in leadership development that includes physical confidence, finding purpose & learning to manage stress under high pressure environments.

To integrate my passion for top performance sports with my business expertise, I provide coaching for senior executives from a different angle by considering them like professional atlhetes and adding mental & physical preparation.

My working style is dynamic, disciplined & always looking for ways to incorporate fun & joyfulness to enhance every learning opportunity. I thrive in diverse, multicultural environments & communicate with charisma to moderate business decisions & empower clients.

Tasks and questions that seem unfathomable fascinate him in particular. He proves his capabilities as a mediator and specialist for change processes in times of crisis where he combines the balance of clear target orientation with excellent people skills. He is also a sought-after lecturer and speaker in universities and on public panels on the subject of leadership.
