Julianne Jammers

  • I wanted an international career for as long as I can remember. I spent 11 years in sales and brand management at Procter & Gamble in Germany and Switzerland. Later at IMD I moved from marketing major brands to marketing people. At the World Economic Forum, I held several roles from HR to business development and event management where the role of collaboration and team was fundamental.

    In 2014 I was recruited to launch and manage the SwissTech Convention Center on the EPFL campus – sometimes referred to as the “MIT of Europe”. I joined the Board of AIPC in 2018 and in 2021 became the Executive Director of the North Quarter of the EPFL including in addition to the convention center, the commercial center with a hotel, shops, restaurants and student housing.

    My career choices have always been focused on people. I am a strong believer in that culture is key to building a winning organization. When recruiting to build a team, skills and talent are important but attitude is the tie-breaker in all cases.
