"As founder and owner of KATCO, I look forward to providing you with my expertise and many years of experience in the implementation of complex projects and in turnaround situations."
Thanks to my many years of experience in various executive functions at different companies, I have extensive experience in the execution of turnarounds and management of complex projects and ventures.
As an entrepreneur, I led for several years the creation and development of a dynamic international start-up (Europe/Africa) in the Fintech sector including a financial platform for underserved populations.
Prior to that, I was CFO and CEO of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), a multinational global company, for more than thirteen years. I played a key role in FIFA's turnaround from over-indebtedness to sustainable profitability. During this time, I also ensured the implementation of a large number of complex projects, particularly in the areas of corporate governance, major events, acquisitions and finance.
Before joining FIFA, I worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company in Switzerland, supporting various companies in the implementation of challenging projects.
