Christoph Aeschlimann
CTO at Swisscom


Christoph Aeschlimann joined Swisscom in February 2019. As CTO and CIO, he oversees the IT, Network & Infrastructure division. In addition, he is a member of the Swisscom Group Executive Board. Prior to that, he was the CEO of the international software engineering company ERNI, which is active in consulting, training, engineering and solutions. Christoph holds a degree in computer science from the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne and an MBA from McGill University, Canada.

Over the next decade, the focus of many companies will be on leveraging their full digital potential. Besides technology and expertise, which naturally have an important role to play, a company’s ability to react quickly and flexibly to market changes will be just as critical for their success.

I have a passion for the latest technologies, including 5G, cloud, AI and anything related to software – I am fascinated by modern ways of working, such as agility and DevOps, which give employees the tools to contribute more and work independently towards a common goal.
