LIVE IN SWITZERLAND
IF YOU WANT TO FIT IN!
Patricia Weides (MS EDM 00), Retail & Visual
Merchandising at Tudor Watch
In Switzerland for the last 11 years, Patricia Weides has
" I FOUND MY JOB
THANKS TO NEOMA "
Élodie Pilot (PGE 13), Trade Finance and
Treasury in trading house, non-ferrous metals,
Mechem
After an apprenticeship in Credit Agricole CIB,
Élodie Pilot went to London to search for a job:
" Geneva was not my first target, but I got a job
as trade finance officer in Louis Dreyfus
Commodities " . She highlighted " various
employees were from NEOMA including the
regional CEO " .
Afterwards, she took on various positions in
the banking sector first within ING and then
BNP Paribas. She worked in the middle office
and the front office in trade finance. During her
experience, she participated in an ING competition:
" In 2016, we won a world prize for
innovation. Our idea consisted in applying
blockchain to commodities trading. Back then,
this type of technology was unknown. For
instance, bitcoin price was only 600 dollars
instead of 40k dollars today. " She added that
Geneva is a " Crypto Valley " and a trading
commodities place. The ambitious and
dynamic young woman then created her own
company, which is based on this idea: " It was a
wonderful experience, but the sector was not
fully mature " she regrets. She points out: " You
need to be financially secure to launch a
company " . Currently, she is back in Mechem,
a Turkish trading house: " The CEO knew the
reputation of the school. Being a NEOMA
graduate is an asset " . To further the great
image of NEOMA BS, she regularly leads
finance conferences that are held by NEOMA
Alumni.
But she doesn't see herself stay long-term in
Geneva: " It is a very small place and to me a
little boring. In one year and a half I will have
my citizenship, and then I plan to come back
and forth as Switzerland remains extremely
attractive for salaries and job opportunities. "
been working for an American company in Paris. The firm is
headquartered in Geneva and she was offered a transfer to
Switzerland: " My future husband, who is from Toulouse, couldn't
find work in the French capital but had an opportunity in Geneva
so that's why we moved " she recalls. At the time, the couple
received help from a relocation agency. For instance, it assisted
them in finding an apartment in the city. It can indeed be quite
challenging and very expensive. Still, she recommends living in
Switzerland rather than in France, on the other side of the
border: " Geneva is like a small village, once you are integrated, it
is much easier to find business opportunities and my husband,
who founded his cosmetics company, relied on networking a lot.
Living in Switzerland means that you want to contribute to the
local economy. During the pandemic, I saw that companies
favored people with Swiss work permits over people with
G Permits (cross-border commuter permit) " she says.
" I recommend that people seeking opportunities in marketing or
communications get Swiss work permits, because opportunities
are scarcer " . Overall, this active member of the Geneva tribe
really enjoys the Swiss way of life: " We live in a small city that is
clean and safe like most of Switzerland. It is less stressful than
Paris and you can easily go skiing or cycling on weekends "
she adds.
GENEVA, THE NUMBER
ONE PRIVATE BANKING
PLACE IN THE WORLD
Romain Richard (PGE 97), Chief Financial Officer at Société
Générale Private Banking Switzerland
After working in New York, London and Hong Kong, Romain
Richard accepted a job offer within his company and relocated
from Paris to Switzerland in 2017: " Geneva is the leading private
banking place in the world, the number one financial place in
2020 and 2021. Therefore, there really are many options for
NEOMA Alumni " he says. The reason why the Swiss capital is so
attractive are " a strong economy, financial stability, safety and
highly skilled workforce. " In addition to finance, the alumnus
mentions opportunities in biotech, retail, innovation, commodities
and health. These attract people from all over the world: " In
Geneva, there are more than 190 nationalities, so the way of life
is very international. Also, the level of education is really high,
and nature is all around. This is great for children " he adds.
