An ex-miss Switzerland? A former Olympic alpine champion? A former president or former president of the Confederation? No, better. Much better!

In 11 years, with his legendary “what else?”, The American superstar has introduced the Nespresso brand throughout the world. For the last ten years, he has served as ambassador for the Omega watch brand. And today he promotes the ambitions of Swatch Group in the automotive industry.
