ZURICH — Fast-growing business strategy and communications consultancy BoldT has opened its fourth office in Zurich, and has brought senior marketer David Brügger on board as partner.

Brügger will run the Zurich office alongside former Burson-Marsteller Switzerland CEO Matthias Graf, who joined as a partner this month. Together they will focus on developing the DACH and French markets and supporting BoldT’s growth, with Brügger leading the business modelling and technology business.

He joins from international trade consultancy Switzerland Global Enterprise, where he was CMO and CSO for the past five years. Brügger previously held European and Swiss marketing and communications roles for HSBC and insurance company Generali.

BoldT managing partner Jeremy Galbraith said: “Technology is transforming business and society and communications is no exception. David brings vast insight into the interdependence of business strategy, communications and technology to BoldT and our clients. He also has experience as an entrepreneur, journalist, consultant and in-house professional. That is a winning combination that will support our fast-growing new consultancy.”

Brügger added: “I am thrilled to co-launch BoldT in Zurich and help design it for growth. I strongly believe there is a pressing need for strategy, communications and technology advice from a single source. With an obsessive customer-centric and tech-driven approach, we can help companies address their markets and meet their clients’ expectations as well as help solve their problems.”

BoldT, which launched in October 2017, also has offices in Brussels, Cologne, Oslo and Berlin. The firm plans to open more offices in 2019.
