Raphael Luescher

Account Executive @ Evernote




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.

Prior to Evernote, 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 masterโ€™s degree in international management from the University College Dublin and a bachelorโ€™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.
