Catherine Gritti

an interdisciplinary allrounder

More than 15 years of professional experience

After my studies in communication and media, English literature and criminology at the University of Zurich, I worked with international and national enterprises as a project leader in the areas of corporate communication, media relations, event management, advertising, marketing communication and sponsoring.

Over the last fifteen years I became an expert in project management. Throughout these years I adapted quickly to the specificities of the different industries, sectors and functions I worked in. During my involvement in the private sector as well as in public administration I developed an intuitive awareness for my counterparts and I learned how to communicate audience specific, which makes me an interdisciplinary allrounder.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
