Thorsten Jaecks

Senior Strategy Manager, SME

What is your personal guiding principle?

I've been working as Senior Strategy Manager since October 2014. My focus is on Small & Medium Enterprises (SME) in the Swisscom Group strategy team in Zurich. I deal with key strategic issues involving the core business and new growth sectors, both on behalf of the SME Head of Division and also the Group Executive Board on general matters.

What is your background?

I previously headed strategy in Vodafone Germany's New Business & Innovation team, where I worked on many innovative topics like data insights, digital identity or smart homes. My 12-year track record includes a couple of years of start-up experience at Bertelsmann and consulting at Accenture and Detecon in several countries.

Why are you with Swisscom?

Well, because I see Swisscom as a strong market leader poised to become an Internet company that is bold enough to really roll up its sleeves and tackle new issues. And because, from day one, I have experienced a very open, creative and constructive corporate culture, which values people at all levels of the hierarchy.

How can you make a difference here?

That culture means that I can also contribute personally to the company's future development. It motivates and inspires me and it's fun working in a great team with innovative topics every day. So when are you joining us?
