Olivier Baumann - Board Member

Olivier BaumannOlivier was born in Berne, Switzerland. At the age of two, his parents, who worked for a Swiss church, were asked to start and lead a church in Australia. Olivier therefore had the privilege of growing up “Down Under”, spending most of his obligatory schooling years near Coffs Harbour, NSW. Growing up in a Christian home, it was natural to talk about Christian faith. At the age of eight, Olivier started his personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a decision he has never regretted making.

After moving back to Switzerland as a family, subsequent to two six-year terms in Australia (1994), Olivier visited grammar school and then graduated in business administration at the University of Berne. He commenced his professional career with an internship at the Federal Finance Office, which was followed with working in and leading various government-wide projects for the Swiss Federal Government until 2012. Over the next two years, God started a unique journey with Olivier and his wife, resulting in supporting a start-up firm in the fitness branch (pure fitness) and shortly afterwards with the collaboration and partnership in a financial consulting firm (emendo family office).

Olivier has a passion for helping people perceive and walk in their true calling. He also has a longing to see Christian entrepreneurs and executives being equipped and living out their faith 24/7. Olivier is married to his wonderful wife Linda and loves doing sport in his spare time.
