Who said public companies are not agile?
As a WOB event, this conference is open to men and women.
Each CWF member can invite a friend at member’s price.
Anne Hornung-Soukup, Chair of the Board of TPG, the Geneva Public transport company, and a long-time member of the Career Women’s Forum, will share with us how the TPG adapted their response to the Covid-19 crisis.
The TPG has the mandate to manage mobility in Geneva: it has over 2000 employees covering 80 different professions and manages a fleet of 450 vehicles that, in total, drive the equivalent of 750 times around the Earth every year.
How did this large public industrial company react to the sudden shock of a global pandemic, when major adjustments had to be made quickly, efficiently and safely? And, even more importantly, what will mobility look like in a post-Covid world? Anne is well-placed to share how the TPG’s experience has lessons for other enterprises and even smaller companies in our “new normal” environment.
Anne Hornung-Soukup has held the position of Chair of the Board of the TPG since July 2016, and is passionate about new urbanism and the role of public transportation in solving the important and urgent issues of climate change, public health as well as the essential part it has to play in creating efficient mobility for a thriving regional economy.
Anne grew up in the Chicago area, then studied in South Africa, Massachusetts, Washington D.C., Paris and Geneva before settling in Geneva.
Following a period of 16 years working in portfolio management at a Geneva private bank, Anne set up her own firm with a partner in 1999. After 11 years running the company, she joined a larger portfolio management firm as a Partner until her retirement from finance, end 2017.
Over the years, Anne has presided, been on the board of, or been active in many Geneva associations including the Career Women’s Forum, American Citizens Abroad, the American International Club, the American International Women’s Club and others.
Anne is dual national Swiss-American and she and her husband have two grown children.
