about Stephan

An extensive education and professional career from junior to leadership in countless missions, but above all a multicultural life experience and a holistic awareness and way of thinking allow me to do what I do with passion: Helping Others in Life'n Business.


Born in Zurich/Switzerland, I am a multilingual entrepreneur. After completing my apprenticeship and obtaining my Commercial Business Certificate and Federal Diploma, I began my career in import and export sales and held several commercial positions in automotive distribution and vehicle finance. I carried on my studies and attended further educations as federally qualified merchant (ESGC) in Lausanne/Switzerland.

My career was progressing; in 1998 I took on the responsibility for sales-development in B2B management and financial services and I specialized more and more in the field of customer centricity and people management.

2002 I joined the Bank Group BNP Paribas and during several years I headed successfully subsidiaries of Arval in Switzerland and Portugal as Managing Director.

2006 I followed the BNP Paribas training 'Leadership for Development'.

2010 I was promoted to Global Innovation Director at Arval International Headquarters in Paris where I was in charge of innovation and new product management for 24 countries around the planet.

2013 I decided to start my own business and initiated sb competence in Switzerland.

2015, BMW entrusted me with the business-development of Alphabet's full service leasing business in the French-speaking area of Switzerland.

2017 sb competence expanded its operations to Asian markets with its base office in the Philippines.

2018 I started my studies in quantum physics and subtle energy management and concluded my work as licensed and certified Master in SOL Hypnosis® in Germany in 2019.

2019 The sb competence services in business-development extended towards general B2B markets and energetic service delivery to particulars; the holistic approach of service delivery 'Life'n Business' was born.
