Born in the eastern part of Switzerland and now living in Zürich for the past 14 years, Beat started as a Software Engineer building fancy websites, like the very first e-commerce shop for Compaq (today HP). After a couple of happy years coding ASP and JAVA, he found out that he has the passion and the patience to build the “bridge” between technology and business, or agency and client. Over the last decade, Beat has been working in agile environments as Scrum Master and Project Manager. The last two years, his focus has been on Brand Management. Beat has more than 20 years experience in IT, and across many roles: Software Engineer, Consultant, Project Manager, Business Unit Manager, Scrum Master and Product Manager.
Outside of Europe people often approach Beat to tell him that he looks like Jean-Claude Van Damme. In a club in Pipa Brazil he had to sign several shirts since people thought he is Jean-Claude.
