I began a new chapter in my life in early April of this year... as an independent professional. Upon turning 58, I took the opportunity to leave my employer and ease into early retirement. I will remain active nonetheless: I launched my own firm (LOFOS CONSULTING LTD) to transfer knowledge and experience to start-ups and to do private equity/angel investing on my own. Still living in Morges/Lausanne (Switzerland) with Marie-Christine and our three daughters Solenne (21), Chiara (18) and Salomé (15) - all doing great. Wishing you all good health and lots of happiness!!!!

Hi everyone I moved from Tokyo to UK and this is my 20th year in London. I enjoy my life here with my wife, Noriko and son, Ken. I work at my firm's European HQs and currently I am in charge of M&A strategy in the region. This weekend we visited Cyrille's house in Luxembourg and had a great time to catch up. If you plan to come to London area, please let me know! Nori

I have resigned as President & CEO of the Norican Group after seventeen years. It has been my great privilege to be part of such a successful journey, beginning with the spin off of the Wheelabrator Group from USFilter (NYSE: USF) in 2003 and through four subsequent private equity owners, two recessions, five capital raises and 2.5 million frequent flyer miles. I leave the team in great hands as I move on with the next phase of my career.
