Creating a world from scratch is Guido's talent. Whether it's creating an arts festival in the USA, developing a digital strategy for Swiss Radio and Television, or organizing the office of a new member of the Federal Parliament's budget committee in Berlin. Setting up the framework, fundraising, building the team, establishing the partnerships... These are the things Guido has been doing for the last 20 years. 


He loves diversity and internationality. Speaking four languages fluently allows him to slip into any world, from an OECD election observer in Vladivostok to punk culture in Geneva. One is always surprised by Guido's passions. As he states about himself: "I have a passion for turn-around projects and start-up situations as they tend to be creative, hands-on and results-oriented."

 

With Transmutex, he is delighted. He is looking for the impact that his participation can create in an adventure. Transmutex was made for him. He will continue to play the piano at home to the delight of his friends.
