Business Analyst meets Rock Star
Hi, my name is Benno. I’m an optimistic, realistic dreamer... a very patient one.
Back in 1980, at the age of six, I decided to become a rock star. The US rock band “Kiss” gave a concert in Basel, my home town. I grew up close to the St. Jakob stadium, and my older brother persuaded our mother to take us to the stadium so that we could listen to the music from the outside. A very friendly security guard saw us and waved us in. I remember the loud music, the light show – it was incredible! From that moment on, I knew I wanted to become a rock star.
Why am I telling you this? Well, believe it or not: here at Roche, 40 years later – I have become a rock star!
At this year's Roche Management Meeting Roche’s “InHouse bank” won a Roche Award of excellence, and our CFO/CIO introduced the team with the following words: “These guys are rock stars!” For a brief moment the stage went dark, and I could hear the Kiss song “Rock’n’roll all night”... What an incredible evening!
I work as a Business Analyst in Finance IT Treasury. At the time of writing our team consists of 12 highly skilled people from 9 different nations (Germany, Guatemala, Hungary, Northern Ireland, Philippines, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, US), all working in Kaiseraugst Switzerland.
We are responsible for operating performance, support, life-cycle management and continuous improvements to treasury systems.
