CFO Switzerland and COO Media Business, Dentsu Aegis Network Switzerland
"A team with focus, but a lot of freedom for your own development, personal responsibility and fun is the basic prerequisite for achieving all our financial goals"
Walter Hassler believes in diversity and cross culturalism; ultimately, the true spirit of a network hinges on being open to new ways of thinking and moving in the same direction together. For him, to keep motivating others to do, move, challenge and decide is the thrust behind success for the multitude of projects underway within Dentsu Aegis Network.
Following studies in Finance and Business Leadership, Walter was working for Deloitte and WPP before joining Dentsu Aegis Network in 2011.
Walter has consistently focused on transforming businesses, and he brings a constant sense of inertia to an industry not shy of change, and his expertise in restructuring has been key across all business areas. His key for good change management? Trust in people, letting them grow and empowering them with responsibility. By his experience, this creates highly motivated and high performing teams.
