May we present? - The Hutter Consult AG consists of innovators, strategy foxes, advertising rock stars, storytellers and efficiency heroes.
We are 27 employees who represent 13 nations and breathe, live and love social media.
Thomas Hutter is owner, managing director and lead animal of the Hutter Consult-Crew. Known as the "Facebook Guru" since its inception and as one of the most renowned Facebook marketing experts in the German-speaking region, he advises large and medium-sized companies, organizations and agencies.
The blog www.thomashutter.com, founded in 2009, is the founding base of today's Hutter Consult AG, and remains one of the most important resources on current developments in Facebook and social media marketing in the German-speaking countries in Europe.
Thomas passes on his knowledge both as a lecturer and as a seminar leader at various seminar providers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. He can be met as a speaker and mentor at the most popular and current conferences of the industry.
And if his day is not already filled up with just that, the workaholic loves to spend his offline time with cigars, rum, extensive BBQs, his familia and latina americana - preferably all the above in combination with his jacuzzi.
Florian, has been with the Hutter Consult AG since its inception, and is now Head of Advertising and a member of the executive board.
He acts as a charming, but also competent interface between conception/strategy and the implementation of digital advertising with platforms such as Facebook/Instagram Ads, Google Search Ads, Google Display Ads, YouTube Ads, LinkedIn Ads, Twitter Ads, ... up to Microsoft Ads. And because that's definitely not enough for him, he also develops concepts regarding search engine marketing, Google Analytics and also supports our customers with UX design questions for websites and advertising media creation. Florian is also a passionate data nerd, for whom Excel is an MMORPG and likes to analyze and optimize till he drops.
Another fun fact: when he smells cheese fondue he gets glassy eyes, with raclette he gets extremely happy and with a BBQ he never gets enough!
Thomas Besmer, also lovingly named"Besmo" amongst his colleagues, is an old player in the digital business – he has been playing in the online industry since 2005. His CV includes positions at AZ Direct, CSS Versicherungen, Farner Consulting and Comparis, before he joined the Hutter Consult AG in December 2017. In his capacity as Senior Consultant and Head of Consulting, 'Besmo' is responsible for comprehensive consulting activities with a focus on analysis, business development and the further expansion of our agency services.
As a father of two, he never gets bored. Whether it's building Duplo trains or spending hours digging. Yes, digging - you read that right ;-). There is and will be a programme after work. And even if the quiet minutes have become significantly less, he enjoys every moment with his family. Some of which he also shares in his podcast «Die Mustergatten».
Lavinia originally started studying mechanical engineering, but quickly realized that this was a crazy idea. So she ended up in the boring field of business administration ;-). After her studies, she got a job at NetApp and worked for almost 18 years in sales operations and marketing, where she met all kinds of different peoples of different cultures from all over the world.
Born in Germany, she is somehow a magnet for funny situations. During a walk through the city, a bucket of water is sure to fall on her head. Or at a football match, she gets hit on the head not once, but twice (!). Public transport is not her friend either. Doors are bound to not open, or she is bound to end up somewhere else than where she wanted to be. We are happy that she is now bound to the HuCo family.
Civil engineering drafting, information technology, business administration and now social media management - there is hardly a topic in the IT and business sector that Stefano has not yet risked to take a look at. At Hutter Consult AG, our favourite Italian guy is responsible for business development in connection with the expansion of our agency platform services. In addition, as an experienced project manager and Head of Platforms, he is the first point of contact for customers in all matters and needs relating to the actual platforms. He finds and enables the implementation of sustainable, efficient and technology-based tool and platform solutions for successful social media management.
In private, his two little sons like to keep him busy - except when Daddy treats himself to a cigar and a whiskey on Sunday evening after the obligatory Sunday dinner at his parents'. Then he finally has a moment to himself.
Once you have worked with Thomas, you always return to Thomas - as Claude Sprenger did in 2018, a good 13 years later after his training with Thomas H. himself. But now he is better, faster and a lot more digital, too. Just exactly how we need him. After web-solutions.ch GmbH (Hutter), Assai Dialog+Digital (Wirz) and Koch Kommunikation, he enriches the team with his lateral thinking head, from which digitalization strategies and visions spring uncontrollably.
In his function as Senior Consultant, Claude takes over a comprehensive consulting activity with a focus on tool and app development and is responsible for the strategic development and automation of business processes, tools and services within the Hutter Consult.
In his private life Claude likes vitamin sea and kitesurfing and likes books in the actual shape of a book, a good glass of vino and whiskey "on the rocks".
Aylin comes from the beautiful Constance on lake Bodensee and adorns Hutter Consult as a digital marketing consultant. The graduate in business administration, media and communication science is a typical publishing child with apprenticeships as a clerk for dialog marketing in Südkurier media house in Constance and in a dual studies course at the Ebner Media Group in Ulm.
Sweet tooth Aylin loves sweets and also likes to play tennis, while her two Chihuahuas Schischi and Filu happilly watch her.
David «Dave» Avolio, a marketing genius crowned by his friends, is actually a photographer. He founded a few start-ups, developed them further and has runned them into the ground again. Besides that he has trained himself to genius status in marketing during his 12 years of self-employment. At Hutter Consult he is one of the charming senior consultants and is responsible for the e-learning project alongside his son Alessandro at home.
Dave is a self-declared hobby barista who would never waste his life on bad espresso, but chooses wine more by the label. Basically, he fills up his combustion vehicle in such a way that the price always has to be rounded off mathematically - well, if it's nothing else.
It is also noteworthy that Dave is the only vegetarian man to venture into the lion's den.
Dominik lives digital marketing through and through. The Vorarlberg native originally comes from the field of needs research, but quickly found his calling in digital marketing. Dominik feels at home in the topics of online advertising and the tracking world and proved this in his master's degree in Digital Marketing & Analytics.
Dominik loves the speed rush! No amusement park is left out on his travels. Does this need of thrill comes from his 12 years of competitive karate? Nowadays, he takes it more quietly and helps only with the tournament organization.
«Laaast year I gave you my heart ...» and many other Christmas songs Dominik whistles the whole year and drives both himself and the team almost crazy. So we are looking forward to «silent night» again.
Gabriela is attending the secondary school diploma in Frauenfeld in the field of communication and information and is doing a six-month internship with us. Despite her Colombian blood in her veins, she loves to spend her holidays in Italy and orders Wiener Schnitzel in the restaurant. In fact, she always orders Wiener Schnitzel, no matter which country she's in. Boredom sucks: her nails need a new colour every week, and she loves mangas and anime. So it's no surprise that she's a big fan of BTS (Korean boy band). Eoseo wa (어서 와)!
Lena from a village near Villingen-Schwenningen in the Black Forest, where there are more cows than inhabitants, moved to study sociology in the beautiful Constance on lake Bodensee. She proudly holds the title of Bachelor of Arts and delights Hutter Consult AG as a consultant.
During her studies, Lena was able to gain experience in event and project management, and was able to work as a social media manager in a start-up company.
Lena is a total dog lover, has written a bachelor thesis about «tattoos as a staging symbol» and prefers to go on a hiking holiday in South Tyrol with bacon, shake bread and beer.
Watch out, this senior consultant here has it all: Markus Edelberg, former police officer, 15 years of rescue service AND trained firefighter, photographer, photo and media designer, graduated in communications with specializations in brand management, digital PR and social media - and because it fits so well: Fisheries supervisor in an honorary capacity for species and nature conservation.
Before Markus joined Hutter Consult, he was responsible for social media marketing at EMS Electro Medical Systems GmbH. In his private life, Markus is a passionate fisherman. His passion is so great that he likes to move team meetings from his workplace to his fishing spot. He also likes strong coffee and generally gets time off from his employers on April 1st. Why we will see yet...
Shadya started at Wander AG after completing her bachelor's degree with a focus on strategy and marketing. Therefore, it's no surprise that one of her vices include chocolate. But the ones who have to pay for it are her cats: Ragusa and Giotto.
Born in Fribourg, she is a complete travel maniac. She loves travelling more than anything. She is particularly attracted to warm countries, such as her absolute dream country Australia or Ibiza at least once a year. It also goes hand in hand that photography is her absolute passion, and she can even develop film rolls in the darkroom in the traditional way.
The gin lover fits in perfectly with the HuCo family, because her "guilty pleasures" are Red Bull sugar free and Coke Zero. Because what's never missing from the fridge at Headquarters are her two favourite drinks
Tourism, travel, entertainment, music and shows - Sarah clearly masters the art of living a good and entertaining life. After working for Schaffhauserland Tourismus as a member of the management board, and among other things, such as a master thesis with Cirque Du Soleil and a job at abc Production AG, Switzerland's leading concert and show organiser, we were able to recruit the experienced marketing manager for our own company. Sarah supports our team as an experienced advertising superstar.
Besides her son, travelling and music are amongst Sarah's greatest passions. Concerts and music create the greatest balance for her. Good to know: Sarah has been part of a girlband for 17 years now, with gigs and air time on the radio – not too bad, huh?
Sunshine Carlotta is doing a two-year internship with us as a mediamatican after completing the basic apprenticeship at SBW Neue Medien.
Kick it like Carlotta! Since 12 years she has been playing football for FC Münchwilen and lives team spirit as a central defender/head of defence. When she is not on the football field, she plays her guitar and sings herself happy.
Carlotta loves challenges - she has already mastered the Joffre Lake Trail in British Colombia (Canada) barefoot.
Michaela is a full-on digital marketer at heart. Since 2017 she has been working quite successfully for Hutter Consult as a consultant and project manager. Michaela lovingly turned her back on her Austrian homeland and moved to tranquil Switzerland for Thomas and the Hutte Consult crew.
What Michaela does: she masters Facebook ads in her sleep and definitely always knows the answer to any questions. Clients love Michaela and Michaela also loves her clients. Michaela speaks an enchanting Austrian dialect that draws participants even more to attend her Facebook and LinkedIn workshops and seminars.
And in private? Michaela loves travelling, good Italian food, nature and lots of cakes and chocolate. Yes, our Michi is definitely one to love.
We present: Stephanie from St. Gallen, Consultant and Multimedia Engineer at Hutter Consult. After her studies in multimedia engineering, Stephanie moved from the peaceful mountains to the seductive world of big cities. Before Hutter Consult, she made a stop in Berlin and Vienna to get a first taste of working in an agency.
Stephanie listens to the middle name "cynical", and she thinks no-parking zones, are more of a recommendation. She doesn't have to have the last word on principle - but as a chatterbox you usually have this automatically.
If she didn't like sitting so much, she would have been a stand-up comedian.
Dorian Kostanjsek is graduated in business informatics and audio engineering and now a part of the platform as well as the ads team as both consultant and advertising specialist because of his ultra-exciting knowledge in IT and audio engineering. He also makes sure that the Hutter Consult internal IT structure works like Swiss clockwork.
And in case you want to get into the music business, Dorian also offers 11 years of event and music experience and has tried his hand in the music business from song production to club operations in the past.
Privately Dorian lives for sports and music. And because his name is so complicated, he has made a virtue out of necessity and collects misspellings of his surname.
Livia was recruited directly from her university lecture room to the Hutter office, where she is now part of our most attractive platform team, well equipped with a wild curly mane and a freshly acquired bachelor's degree.
Hutter Consult now holds the first position in Livia's curriculum vitae after a commercial apprenticeship with the St. Gallen Farmers' Association, studies at the Graubünden University of Applied Sciences and various internships. Yessss.
Livia is a typical digital native who is usually always on. Funny that she still knows television - she only uses it to watch the Simpsons. And if there is still a little time left for offline time, then Livia likes to play the French horn at Stadtmusik Gossau.
Tanja Nägele, an Eastern Switzerland native, is part of our Platform Team working under “Pater Familia” Stefano Lungaretti as well as our Ads Team, headed by Florian Muff.
After taking a few minor detours at both Schweizerische Südostbahn AG and St. Gallen-Bodensee Tourismus, she finally made her way to Hutter Consult AG in March of 2021 after her second attempt. This had nothing to do with the quality of her work and her creativity- rather, she didn’t lose sight of her goal since her first encounter with Hutter Consult in 2019. To us that is very admirable, and we believe that loyalty should be rewarded.
In her private life, Tanja is a self-confessed "bratwurst-in-the-woods" fan, loves action in the mountains, and when she's not chasing her dogs or staring at TikTok for hours, she likes to travel to Tokyo to pay her sister a visit.
Anna Peftitsi is a name to remember- not only because it sounds a little complicated, but also because it’s connected to so many renowned projects.
Having grown up in Greece, our creative multimedia producer moved to Stuttgart to study audiovisual media after an extensive couchsurfing trip throughout Europe. She has worked as a compositor for “Independence Day 2” as well as the animated film "Manou the Swift", then decided to go freelance and ran her entire operation remotely.
Anna loves traveling and adventures, knows all of the Disney songs in three different languages(!) and was also scheduled as a standby for the Greek version of the TV show “Survivor”.
May we introduce: Elmar. A rare but real "Konstanzer" and "Badener" has been wandering the online marketing world since 1997, both on the client and agency side. Rating: valuable, since his main focus can be found in the world of Search Engines.
The fast food, coffee and BBQ junkie completes his healthy lifestyle with diving, hiking and extensive Mario Kart sessions. Without actually having the time for it. Elmar usually carries the sun in his heart, the heart on his tongue, and his sons in a bicycle trailer.
Daniel Stark is Vorarlberger and the second Austrian import hit in the Hutter Consult Advertising Team. The last 3.5 years before joining our team, the online marketing and social media manager has worked as Head of Performance Marketing at the Digital Hunter Group in tranquil and cozy Liechtenstein and is known for mastering the KPIs of his campaigns at all times, even in his sleep. If you want to see this for yourself, you can find his contact details below. ;)
Daniel commutes daily from Vorarlberg to Aadorf and satisfies his constant thirst for knowledge with countless audio books and podcasts. Good to know: he named his two rabbits after superheroes: Bruce (Batman) and Tony (Ironman).
Katharina completed her «Bachelor of Arts in Digital Film Making» at the SAE in Stuttgart. After her studies, love led her to Switzerland, or more precisely to Eastern Switzerland. For the last few years she worked, with her good humour and forward-thinking, the Eastern Switzerland Television (TVO). During this time, she developed herself as a film director.
During her studies she was involved in several short films, among others for the Film Academy and ARTE. She was also allowed to be an extra in a Matthias Schweighöfer (famous German filmmaker) film. While ten hours of filming, she has been seen in the cinema for one strong second. *uff*.
The Swabian likes everything that is sweet - especially gummy bears and spaghetti ice cream. Read that right! I wonder if an ice-cream parlour in Switzerland will offer this one day? Katharina hasn't found one yet.
From Charlotte, North Carolina (USA) to tranquil St. Gallen in Switzerland - the Hutter Consult crew really does come from all four corners of the world. We may present this gorgeous being gifted with a melodious name: Margo Nichol Steiner. She has been living in Switzerland since 2017. Margo is a Consultant Digital Marketing and, with that, part of our very attractive team of consultants. With a Bachelor degree in Marketing, a good amount of start-up experience, graphic and handlettering skills which she had taught herself and a winning, unstoppable smile (kinda creepy, but nooot), there was no way to get around her.
In Margo's spare time, she either binge-watches Friends, loves to bake – picture her rolling out the dough to the sounds of fancy jazz music – or cuddles obsessively her mates Winston and Theodore (yeah, just cats!).
Sarah visits the Interstate Matura School for Adults and is attending her two-year internship with us. She complements the HuCo family in its cultural diversity as a quarter Indonesian and three quarters Swiss.
She enjoys diving into the deep but is also an enthusiastic skier and is often in the gym. To switch off, the clumsy (she says of herself) bookworm also likes to immerse herself in the Netflix cosmos, but of course also in the hip world of TikTok and cuddles up with her two cats and two dogs.
Loud voice, 1.60 m tall, and always has a reason to smile - that's Belinda! The trained business clerk is currently switching from human resources to digital marketing and supports the team with a breath of fresh air and a drive for action in all customer matters.
Belinda chronically suffers from wanderlust (oh, dangerous!), and has a lead foot (we are looking forward to the fines that we will recieve). Belinda has a cat named Sam, that is now 16 years old. Her secret: because of Sam, she sleeps at her father's house twice a week. Meow!
It is an honor to have a caliber like Ivan Urenda in the house of Hutter Consult AG. His CV covers several pages with impressive stations, which show more than 20 years of experience in the HR world - among others as HR Marketing Manager at Wincasa AG as well as HR Head EMEA for an international corporation - it doesn't get more senior than him.
Ivan holds the honorable position of Senior-Senior HR Marketing Consultant and is the man for all questions around Employer Branding and HR relevant marketing offers. Born in LA, raised in Züri Kreis 4, with a father from Mexico and a mother from Heiden (AR) - he combines Latino ease with Swiss reliability.
He is into all sports with ball and bat, as long as they don't take place on ice. For the feeling of freedom, he likes to ride his big motorcycle. And it's not a midlife crisis, as he likes to point out.
Adi Zumbühl is a true Nidwalder (one who is from the Swiss Cantone of Nidwalden) and has been rummaging around the online world since 2009. After his job at AZ Direct and Ulmann + Partner in Lucerne, from 2014 onwards, as a Digital Marketing Manager, he has been responsible for setting up the online department in the Migros Lucerne cooperative, thus served as "the internal hub" amongst his colleagues for all digital topics. We can proudly say: we pulled him back to the consulting side. Adi works for the Hutter Consult as a senior consultant, rounding off the already comprehensive and extremely attractive team of consultants with his know-how.
Besides his wife & kids, his second love is Mallorca (the North - not the Ballermann!). Red wine and meat ensure his daily healthy diet, which is often completed with Kinder Schokolade. Jogging is his "sport" - after all, you gotta do something, right?
