The "Swiss HQ Club" is an exclusive platform enabling headquarters with a strong footprint in Switzerland and a global reach to network and keep up with developments. The club has been in existence for nearly 10 years, and we are proud to serve over 400 members in the Romandie region and the Greater Zurich Area (GZA).
Our subject matter experts and the lively peer discussions provide club members with insights into the finance, tax, legal, supply chain and HR topics and the latest Swiss and global developments. We facilitate debate with those who have common objectives, challenges and visions.
Are you interested in joining the Swiss HQ Club? Please feel free to visit our page and reach out to us.
We look forward to welcoming you on board!

We'll contact you in person once we've received and reviewed your request to join one of the regional clubs. Club activities are free of charge.
"A friendly, international forum to share business challenges, experiences and best practices developed amongst cross-industry senior level peers and knowledgeable thought leaders. Often if you are facing a challenge or an issue, someone in the Romandie Club has likely either identified it, has already addressed it or is in the processing of addressing it, and you can leverage from each other’s experience."
"When I attend GZA events, it allows me a chance to take a breather from my everyday busy work life and reflect - the talks are always informative, providing useful local updates, and inspirational, be it transformational ideas or technological advances for the finance department; and mixing with like-minded business leaders allows me to share experiences and ideas."
"It represents for me a wonderful opportunity for genuinely open and informal exchange of experiences and opinions with other finance professional who are confronted with comparable challenges, while PwC bring their powerful technical expertise to the table, allowing us to connect some important trends affecting us (eg digitalisation, automation, central business services, robotics, predictive analytics, evolution of the legal and fiscal landscape, etc…) to the 'real life' of today’s and tomorrow’s finance function."
"The Club provides a unique setting to discuss relevant topics for finance and operational management. Due to the limited number of participants there is ample opportunity to discuss, not only with the PwC experts but also among participants. It is also a great networking opportunity!"
The Lake Geneva region's history is closely bound up with its openness to the rest of the world. Here Swiss and foreign multinational companies have found the ideal environment to build their headquarters, and have contributed to the development of the region and the country.
With our Romandie Club we aim to respond to the needs of leaders in regional or global headquarters by organising a series of 9 roundtables on relevant topics and two social and networking events in January and June in surprising venues. In these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are running our meetings virtually. On a regular basis, members are informed about our upcoming events and receive a personal invitation.
We are open to welcoming new HQ Romandie Club members, so please feel free to share this link with your colleagues and peers.

The Greater Zurich Area – reaching from the commercial capital to neighbouring cantons such as Schaffhausen and Zug – is one of Europe's strongest economic regions. With our GZA Club we aim to serve you and your needs with quarterly meetings on timely, relevant developments and possible thought-provoking approaches. The meetings have traditionally been dinners in an informal setting in downtown Zurich, but recently have been held as webinars because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to each event, a personal invitation will be sent to you. We are open to welcoming new GZA Club members, so please feel free to share this link with your colleagues and peers.
