swissnex San Francisco’s mission is to connect the dots between Switzerland and Western North America in science, education, art, and innovation. As Switzerland’s innovation hub in the region, we bring people and ideas together through a mix of thought leadership, consulting services, events, exhibitions, study tours, trend scouting, startup acceleration, and more. We seek out what is next and what will be important for people and the world tomorrow, and share those findings with our stakeholders and audience.
A public-private partnership, operated like an entrepreneurial nonprofit as an annex of the Consulate General of Switzerland, swissnex San Francisco has a current annual budget of ~$2.5M and ~15 employees. Our move in June from Jackson Square to Pier 17 will nearly double the size of our space. By hosting a diversity of other organizations on our premises our unique and vibrant ecosystem of innovators will be developed even further. Thematic clusters – like a Living Lab – will emerge.
Now, swissnex San Francisco is growing and looking for a creative and data-driven storyteller to serve as Head of Marketing and Communications and fulfill a key role in the future of the organization. The successful candidate will be responsible for guiding all strategic messaging and communications as well developing relationships with media and managing PR.
The Head of Marketing and Communications will be a proven leader and creative digital expert with outstanding communications, marketing, management, project management, content development, planning, and organization skills. This highly networked individual will be on top of all the latest trends and have an exceptional ability to tell and identify stories that showcase our impact and added value. He or she will also serve as the ultimate brand ambassador and spokesperson for swissnex San Francisco.
