Year-End Greetings 2018 by our CEO Julia Bicher
As we are heading towards the end of 2018, it’s good to look ahead and think about what the new year may unveil.
But first, let’s take a quick look back. 2018 was quite a year for all of us at Congrex Switzerland. It was my first year as CEO of the company and it was one of the most interesting years of my life. I have learnt tremendously and we have been through many developments.
I would like to start with a huge thank you to all my colleagues – Thank you for all your wonderful contributions towards the growth and success of our company.

All our staff love what they are doing and our clients can feel that in every interaction. I wish that we continue to be challenged and fulfilled colleagues striving for customer service at its best. I
Why do I focus so much on the team? Because I believe in Richard Branson’s saying “If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.” And happy clients are our ultimate goal.
I wish you and your families a joyous, peaceful and restful festive season and all the best for the New Year 2019.
