CTO Workplace Analytics at Tango & Founder of Locatee

I’m an innovative technology leader with a rich background in engineering and entrepreneurship. With a Master’s in Electrical Engineering from ETH Zurich and a successful track record of founding and leading Locatee to its acquisition by Tango, I specialize in analytics, product strategy, and team leadership.


Locatee is the leading Workplace Analytics solution that empowers Corporate Real Estate managers to make fact-based decisions about their real estate portfolio by transforming complex data into space utilisation insights.

Tango is the leader in Store Lifecycle Management and Integrated Workplace Management System software, delivering a single solution spanning real estate, design & construction, lease administration & accounting, facilities, desk booking, visitor and space management.

Previously, I worked as RedHat Enterprise Linux System Engineer at ETH Zurich, IT Analyst at UBS Investment Bank, and Product Owner and Head of 3D Consumer Applications at Dacuda (later acquired by Magic Leap). I studied Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at ETH Zurich.

In 2005, I founded the robotics association Helveticrobot where high school students students learn the basics about mechanics, electronics, and software development and other STEM subjects. The students build mobile, autonomous robots to compete in various international competitions. To date, over 50 high school students have participated in Helveticrobot. The team has won the robotics world championship title in 2011 and 2015, and came 2nd in 2012.
