Roland Blaser takes well-earned retirement at 70 – any earlier would have been too early for all of us!

"A good atmosphere prevails in the IMD family and collaboration with younger colleagues has always motivated me," comments Roland Blaser. Although he could already have been enjoying his pension 5 years ago, he kept working on a part-time basis (40%). A mutually-beneficial arrangement.

"Thanks to his experience and calm approach, Roland Blaser has played a central role with us in Development and Quality Assurance, which is something we will miss. However, what we have retained is all that the younger employees were able to learn from Roland Blaser," said Matthias Hermle, CEO of IMD. Roland Blaser will now be able to devote his time to his wife, Trudi and his grandchildren. Everybody at IMD wishes him all the best!

A real IMD man who already plays American football heads for Nashville

Matthias Schärer has just moved to Nashville and is taking on the new position of Manager Vision and System Applications with IMD North America. "I am looking forward to this job. We want to open up new markets with new technical solutions and further expand IMD in America."

Everything had to be organised – visa, insurance, somewhere to live, relocation, etc. However, he still found time to play American football with the Bienna Jets. It is now a case of getting a foothold in Nashville, getting to grips with the new job and finding a Football team.

Barbara Hooper - at home in two cultures

At IMD, Barbara Hooper makes sure that deliveries pass through customs without any problems. "My job in Exports at IMD is dynamic, gives me lots of contacts and you always have to be up-to-date, which I like."

Relocating from London to Switzerland three years ago was quite a big change for the Hooper family. In the meantime, her children and husband are familiar with both cultures and enjoy such Swiss leisure activities as cycling, swimming and hiking. In a chat with Barbara Hooper, she tells us what makes English people different from the Swiss.
