Fausto and Alexandra

Our fellow Angeleno-Swiss Fausto Zaina is returning back to Switzerland to pursue a mega-opportunity in the same field, with another important tourism organization promoting Switzerland’s Railroads. What a great career move, Fausto – Congratulations!

Lisa, Fausto & Linda

Thank you for your tireless work on behalf of Switzerland here in LA – and as the function of Board Member at the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce/LA: Chairman Roger Wacker couldn’t have said it better during “your” Oscars-going-away-reception last week: you are AMAZING! And that’s why you deserved an AWARD!

Let’s hope your travels take you back to the “Best Coast” soon! – and you can bet we’ll come bug you at your new digs near Zürich’s Hauptbahnhof!

You will forever be an “Honorary Angeleno-Swiss“, in good company alongside many illustrious previous honorees!

Ciao Fausto, Buon Viaggio e Arrivederci a presto!

Dear friends

After four intense and exciting years in the City of Angels time has come to move on to new challenges for me.

Thank you for your collaboration, thank you for writing and talking about Switzerland, thank you for filming in Switzerland, thank you for promoting and selling Switzerland and sometimes even dreaming about Switzerland. Simply thank you for putting Switzerland on the map. I’m grateful having had the opportunity to work with you. It has been a huge pleasure. I will miss you.

I’m proud to announce my successor, Alexandra Imhof who is based at the moment in our Paris office. She will take over the position of District Manager Western US as from April 4 2011.

At the same time it’s a pleasure to inform that our paths might cross again. As from April 4 2011 I’ll be working for Swiss Travel System AG, a sister company of Swiss Federal Railway and Switzerland Tourism, based in Zurich.

In my new capacity, as Market Manager America, Asia & Australia, I’ll be responsible for sales & marketing of Swiss Rail and therefore be regularly in the US as well.

I wish you best health, great business and that your dreams come true.
See you again on a Swiss train.

Swiss Rail Greetings, Fausto
