Mr. Philip Huggenberger lead the University of St. Gallen (HSG) Tokyo Chapter since its inception in 2008. Thank you for all your efforts!! As Philipp left Japan recently, Mr Gérald Gassert will take over from now on – welcome!
By way of introduction, my name is Gérald Gassert and it is a pleasure to replace Philip Huggenberger in his role as president of the HSG Alumni Club Tokyo. I was born and I grew up in Geneva. During my studies at the University of St. Gallen, I travelled to Japan for the first time as part of a four-week exchange project with Hitotsubashi University.
After my studies I worked in Zurich for three years as an external auditor and I became a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. In 2013, I moved to Tokyo to work as a financial accounting advisor in a big-4 company.
Through this alumni network in Tokyo, I look forward to sharing experiences and to building new relationships. Do not hesitate to contact me should you want to know more about the activities of the HSG Alumni Club Tokyo.
