The only constant is change

The only constant is change

At the age of 66 and after 20 successful years in international and national recruitment of specialists, professionals and leaders for the life sciences industry, I will terminate my active time as a European Certified Executive Search Consultant, CERC/BDU, to take over a new challenge in management consulting and project management for start-up companies and SMEs. As a consequence, the company HCCM® AG will no longer be active in recruiting, but will continue to exist.

As a “headhunter” I have been able to meet many interesting people in the life sciences industry over the past 20 years. For many companies I have successfully filled critical vacancies and accompanied candidates in their professional development up to senior management level.

With my company, HCCM® AG, and with my employees, I have been able to follow the major changes in the markets and with the market participants and we were part of these developments. This was an extremely exciting time!

As a mentor and business coach in the “Swiss Innovation Challenge” program of the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland, FHNW, I have been accompanying start-up companies since 2011 in their establishment and development of their organizations, products and services.

From August 2020 on, I will continue to expand this activity at adlatus, a network of experienced managers and specialists all over Switzerland (, as an executive coach, interim manager and project manager and I will go on supporting entrepreneurship in Switzerland and in neighboring countries.

I would like to thank you warmly for the many years of successful cooperation and for your trust over the past years and I look forward to meeting you again on another occasion. I wish you and your company every success for the future and all the best!
