Legacy: constraint or springboard.
Motivated by creating solutions which disrupt with old fashion models, Olivier Collombin founded the E-MERGING B2B social network, and organized the first financial online 3D fair, Virtual Finfair. If one quotation can resume his mindset, it’s this one : “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” Henry Ford Olivier Collombin will join the Creative Mornings to share his views on how a heavy heritage may or may not be seen as an opportunity to innovate rather than to constrain.
Graduated from the Geneva Business School, Olivier Collombin has been working for five years at Credit Suisse in the Credit and Institutional sector. Then he joined the private bankers Hentsch & Cie in 1987 to set up a new business line dedicated to External Portfolio Managers. Olivier Collombin is Capital Partner of Lombard Odier & Cie SA (bank founded in 1796) and vice-president of Cité Gestion S.A. He is also member of the Advisory Board of the CIFA (Convention of Independent Financial Advisors).
