Nadine Clauder

Think out of the box and find the road less travelled. I am passionate about different cultures and love supporting expatriates, moving to Switzerland—finding a new home and setting up life. These first steps are vital and the foundation for having a great start in their new environment. Having extensive personal experience in living and working abroad in my career as a communications manager has given me unique insights and understanding of the corporate and individual demands of the relocation process.
