ASA below 40’s Fall Seminar which took place in Zurich earlier this month on “the art of persuasion” was not only our first semi-virtual event, it also marked the end of Olivier Mosimann’s three-year term as ASA below 40 Co-Chair. We thank Olivier for all his hard work, dedication and efforts, which have given ASA below 40 all the necessary tools to continue to thrive in this new decade.

While we are sad to see Olivier go, we are thrilled to announce the appointment of Flavio Peter as our new ASA below 40 Co-Chair. Flavio is Counsel at Wenger & Vieli Ltd. in Zürich and has been an active member of ASA below 40 for many years.
