It's not an adventure until something goes wrong.

Yvon Chouinard


Thomas’ mastery of communication and design, makes him for client relations what typography is for Switzerland. Precise and rigorous. Perfectly bilingual, born in Zürich, Thomas discovered Geneva through his studies in Contemporary History. After joining an advertising agency, he coordinated numerous national campaigns for a wide array of clients, from Air France, Kronenbourg and Sanofi-Aventis to L’Oréal. He then became director of the Swiss branch of a London design agency specialised in corporate branding. Thomas looks at communication with the eyes of a historian: understanding the context, asking the right questions, valuing social interactions. In spring 2017, Thomas was appointed Client Service Director at Base GVA, where his role ranges from coordination, creative market analysis and getting everyone on the same page, to finding a balance between getting the work done and getting it done in the right way. Thomas loves Bavarian food, spending time with family, climbing his backyard mountain Le Salève and the 90s which he still considers as the golden age of the last century.
