Raphael Luescher

Account Executive @ Evernote




I joined Salesforce to participate in shaping the fourth industrial revolution. As Senior Solution Engineer, I'm helping customers define their digital transformation journey by delivering innovative custom solutions to address their business needs.

Prior to Salesforce, I joined Evernote in 2017 as Account Executive and am responsible for growing company revenue and managing client relationships across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Moreover, I co-founded my own technology company in Tokyo, Japan. I credit my experience as co-founder for giving me the necessary skills to work successfully across virtual and multicultural teams. Early on in my career, I worked as Research Assistant dedicated to cross-cultural management and creativity research. 

l studied management and design thinking methodologies in Japan, Australia, Ireland, and Switzerland. I hold a master’s degree in international management from the University College Dublin and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. I also have a Swiss Federal Apprenticeship Diploma in automotive engineering.

In my spare time, I stay active in the Swiss start-up ecosystem. I'm enthusiastic about blockchain technologies and enjoy exploring the intersection of technology, design, and business.
