Nicole participated in the scholarship program in 2008/2009, as part of which she interned at Nihon Kaba K.K. in Tokyo. After her year in Japan, she finished her studies in St. Gallen and subsequently started to work in Zurich. She joined the Alumni Organization in 2012 and took over the role as Vice President and Treasurer in 2014. As newly elected President, her aim is to increase the number of active members and to further develop the Organization.

Nicole Kotomi Egli was elected as Vice President and Treasurer. She participated in the scholarship program in 2008/2009, as part of which she interned at Mercedes-Benz Japan, Co., Ltd. in Tokyo.

He participated in the scholarship program in 2009/2010, as part of which he interned at a well-known laboratory at Kyoto University. After the scholarship ended, he decided to stay in Japan to develop his career and remained in the country for 5 more years. He returned to Switzerland recently and is very motivated to extend and further develop the platform for the Swiss-Japanese young professionals community, where like-minded people can meet and establish a valuable network.

Jaqueline Tschumi (representative Alumni in Japan), Luc Meier (responsible for Events in the Romandie) and Stefan Yanku (responsible for IT) have also been reelected as board.

With the invigorated board, we are confident that a successful future for the Organization lies ahead of us.
