Who is Dave Hertig?
Dave Hertig is a connector by nature and on a permanent quest to find next-level people, frameworks and tools that bring the world forward. His mission is to empower progressive CEOs to drive business growth. He envisions Boom as a cultural movement as much as a business, and that plays perfectly into what he wants from life.
Before establishing Boom, Dave wrote about business for Sonntagszeitung and CASH at Switzerland’s two largest media companies (Ringier, TX Group). He then served as the editor-in-chief of corporate magazines (including Audi Switzerland’s) and acted as a freelance marketer for clients such as UBS, Raiffeisen Switzerland, and responsAbility – an asset manager specializing in emerging markets.
Dave and his love – a progressive CEO herself – live in Lugano in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. He hikes and runs in the surrounding mountains, enjoys the lake, and champions the football teams of FC Lugano and Olympique de Marseille. Dave takes pride in being the oldest brother to 10 siblings.
