"You can dream of the view from the summit. Or you can pack up your shoes, ropes and crampons - and leave the house early in the morning."

"You can dream of the view from the summit. Or you can pack up your shoes, ropes and crampons - and leave the house early in the morning."

Whoever wants to reach the summit needs courage, patience and perseverance. One person who has already been born with these qualities is the managing director of GAMBIT Switzerland. In his spare time, Roland still prefers to go out into the mountains, to the Pilatus, his "home mountain". Sometimes, however, he exchanges his hiking equipment for a mountain bike - and explores nature on two wheels. As a former top swimmer, he also loves the wet element - and continues to train once a week. But he also shows stamina and ambition in his job. Roland studied business informatics at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences until 1991. He then worked at Credit Suisse for seven years as Project Manager Securities Trading and International Banking. As an SAP management consultant, he later accompanied the SAP rollout to 35 countries at Metro International Management AG. In 1999 he founded R. Frei Informatik and headed the company as Managing Director until 2013. In 2014 Roland joined GAMBIT Consulting AG and since then has been managing director of the subsidiary in Switzerland.

Roland is Managing Director of GAMBIT in Switzerland. As project manager for SAP transformations, such as carve-outs or post merger integrations, he is primarily responsible for medium-sized and larger IT projects.
