Marcel Emmenegger went to a small business school in the Swiss Hinterland that included hands-on job training at the local tech company Metrohm. After graduation and mandatory army service, Marcel worked in the desert kibbutz Kerem Shalom with the irrigation department, in the hospitality industry on Lamu island, Kenya, and as an assistant merchant in Panama's Free Trade Zone. He then returned to Switzerland and served as private secretary to entrepreneur Klaus J. Jacobs. Out of this context, Marcel started to organize Corporate Social Responsibility Events for Adecco, Barry Callebaut and Infront Sports. After Mr. Jacobs passed away, Marcel got hired as Office Manager to former politician Peerapong Tanompongphandh whom he met while getting lost on a bicycle tour in Bangkok's urban oasis, Bang Krachao. Marcel is currently back in Switzerland, doing social work in a welfare office. Marcel received further education in Public Governance at ETH Zurich and studied Continental Philosophy at St. Kliment Ohridski University, Sofia. Recently, Marcel picked up writing for a local newspaper as a hobby.


Canadian writer of twenty-seven novels

"I have always followed Marcel's colorful professional career with great interest. He takes great interest in people from whatever background and his advice is anything else than skin deep."


Former CEO/Chairman of Adecco, a Fortune 500 company with 5'200 branches in over 60 countries and territories

"Marcel's acute intelligence and enquiring mind coupled with a varied and unconventional life has made him the insightful and wise thinker he is today. He is a true philomath... and a good friend."


Economic historian and financial expert

"Marcel is a very pleasant and knowledgeable person and has worked in many countries around the world. [...] I had a very good impression of him as a person and as a journalist who tried to do his job as well and as thoroughly as possible."
