Bernhard Stadler

Client Service Partner & Global Managing Director,


Bernie strongly believes in the power of teamwork and has always enjoyed working with high-performance teams, both professionally and as a sportsman. Intrigued by the opportunity to build a firm that strengthens the internal teams of large corporations using external talent, he joined a-connect in 2004 after completing his business studies at the University of St. Gallen. Bernie helped set up and establish a-connect's operations in Asia between 2005 and 2007. With the exception of the time he spent at INSEAD for his MBA, he has been based in Zurich since 2008 and has been working with global clients in the agribusiness, food and financial services sectors.

Today, Bernie passionately works with the global a-connect team in his capacity as the firm’s Managing Director and with global clients as part of his Client Service Partner role.
