At Schweizer Relocation, we have a few things in common: a rich personal experience we gained while spending part of our lives in another country; an above-average commitment to providing useful, top-quality services; and our passion for what we do – for you, every day.
Astrid incorporated Schweizer Relocation GmbH in 2001 and is the company’s Managing Director and owner. She is constantly on the lookout for new ideas and trends and passionate about bringing them to life with her team.
At present, her special focus is on digitalisation – a trend that has also been revolutionising the relocation industry. Astrid has a deep understanding of the requirements of relocation clients – not least due to the fact that she, too, slipped into the role of an expat when she and her family moved to Moscow for two years.
Astrid’s professional roots are in the hotel industry. She trained at the Business and Hotel Management School in Lucerne and has expanded her education on an on-going basis.
Astrid’s favourite place is the Hörnli mountain in Zurich Oberland – it has a fabulous 360° view and a restaurant that serves delicious traditional Swiss food.
Her open, practical nature makes it easy for Tanja to approach clients and qickly recognise their requirements. During her various professional activities, she gained a vast amount of knowledge which she is expanding on a constant basis.
Tanja started her professional career in the service sector and trained at the hotel management school in Lucerne.
Her favourite place in Switzerland is the top of the mountain in Eggersried. The panoramic view on the town of St. Gall and Lake Constance gives you a sense of time standing still.
Fiona’s positive attitude, her ability to engage with other people, and the experiences she gained while travelling and working abroad make it easy for her to relate to our clients and put herself in their shoes. She is able to advise and support them and speed up their process of finding their feet in a new environment.
Fiona started her professional career in the hotel business. She worked in various areas and functions and gathered extensive experience in dealing with international guests. She graduated from the Lucerne Hospitality School.
Fiona’s favourite places are spread across the whole of Switzerland. She is particularly happy up in the mountains and by the water. In the winter, you’ll therefore often find her skiing, and in the summer, she will likely seek the shores of Lake Zurich – refreshing dips in the water included. Her secret tip: Walk around Lake Zurich in 10 stages. (www.schweizmobil.ch - Zürichsee-Rundweg)
Priska’s many years of dealing with people of the most diverse backgrounds help her to assess the needs of clients in a very short amount of time and address them in a targeted manner. She is a mother of two and thus also knowledgeable with regard to family and school matters. If you decide to relocate to Central Switzerland, Priska has many insider tips to help you settle in.
Priska’s professional roots are in hotel management and gastronomy. She also has many years of experience in tourism and PR.
One of Priska’s favourite places is Engelberg and its many hiking paths: For example, the scenic route from Ristis to Engelberg. This will take you past the Flühmatt restaurant, famous amongst hungry hikers for its scrumptious “Älplermagronen”. Or walk through the forest via Klostermatte to reach Engelberg Abbey. Of course, Engelberg is also famous for all its winter attractions.
Verena is our team’s specialist in all matters of social security. Our clients and HR officers benefit from her extensive knowledge and her many years of experience in the field. She analyses complex situations, suggest solutions tailored to the needs of every client, and looks into the best-possible options for retirement benefits. Not only is Verena our social security expert, she also passes her knowledge on in technical seminars on a regular basis.
Verena trained initially in the paramedical sector. She then engaged in further training and is now a Swiss certified social security expert.
Verena’s favourite place is the Engadin, and in particular St. Moritz, which has become a second home for her.
Urbi, a Tibetan terrier, is our little office spirit. He welcomes us enthusiastically every morning and loves being cuddled. Urbi’s presence has a balancing, relaxing effect on our workplace. His ancestors served as loyal guardians of monasteries and animal herds in Tibet. On the Tibetan plains - the “Roof of the World” - a Tibetan terrier is never sold but only ever given to someone as a gift – so that he may bring his new owner good fortune.
Urbi’s favourite playground is the extensive wooded area of Hardwald in the Glatt Valley.
