Founder, CEO, Chairman of the Centiel SA Board
I began my career in the Research and Development team at Invertomatic SA in 1984 In 1993 I co-founded Newave SA, the Swiss UPS manufacturer, where I held the roles of Chief Technology Officer and Chief Operating Officer as well as board member of the holding company. In 1996 me and my team designed the world’s first three-phase transformerless UPS. In 2000 this was followed by designing the world’s first three phase true modular UPS. I subsequently led the team that designed the world market’s second and third generation of three phase modular UPS technology. In 2007, Newave became listed on the Swiss stock exchange and I continued to hold the position of Chief Operating Officer and a member of the board of directors. In February 2012 Newave was acquired by ABB and I later left the company once it was successfully integrated into ABB.
In 2015 I co-founded Centiel SA. In this role I continued to pioneer UPS technology by designing the world market’s fourth generation of three phase modular UPS and a completely new range of three phase transformerless UPS that lead the global market in terms of both availability and operating efficiency.
