Following the departure of Kaspar Loeb, the Dynamics Group is gaining a new member: On November 1, 2016, Marianne Fassbind will take up her position at the Zurich location.
Her core areas will be strategic communications consulting, especially for pension funds, as well as capital market communications and media consulting. Marianne Fassbind has many years of experience and a unique network in these areas.
