New co-directors for FH Switzerland

Since August 2 2023, FH Switzerland has been managed by a duo. We are delighted to welcome Kristina Kunova-Petrova as our new Administrative and Financial Director. Roger Zürcher, who was previously in charge of programmes at FH Switzerland, will take over as Head of Programmes.

Kristina Kunova-Petrova previously worked form any years at IHEID as head of administration and finance at the Global Health Centre (GHC), since the Research Centre was created. She began her professional career at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, where she was responsible for managing projects such as teacher training programmes and the European Year of Languages 2001.
She brings expertise in strategy and planning in finance and human resources, as well as global resource management and the creation and implementation of new procedures.

Roger Zürcher has been with FH Switzerland since 2006. An agricultural engineer by education, he has solid experience in international cooperation, both in terms of management and programme implementation, as well as in training and applied research, particularly in agroecology.

This change follows the retirement of Daniel Hahling, who has been at the head of FH Switzerland since 2016.
