Mayumi Matthaus, Graduate of 1997

I am very pleased to apply for the position of AAG Secretary General. As a proud alumni of the AAG and current member of the board, I am very familiar with the activities of the committee and fully support its development and growth.

I am a Swiss national but also the founder and manager of my own business in Zürich. This role as given me an extensive knowledge of the ins and outs and particulars of the Swiss system and a great insight into accounting, fiscal and banking matters.

I would be delighted to work as the secretary general and believe that my organisation skills and motivation to further promote and assist the AAG would benefit this role.

Nadezda Stepnova: Graduate of 2007

Dear all,

Seven years I worked for hospitality schools (Les Roches and Blue Mountains) in China and Australia; stayed in touch with people who work for the schools as well as alumni.

Eight years in account management, business development and education marketing have evolved my skills in building – and fostering – a culture of operational excellence. Where my experience to date has focused on growth and nurturing relationships, my skills in reporting, analytics and events management are particularly transferable for the Secretary General position.

At this moment in my life, I am a stay at home mom and will be happy to volunteer my time at AAG as a Secretary General.

Best regards,
