Herwig Dämon

This is a job-share with Kimmo Kuortti.

I am Herwig Dämon, Head of Public Affairs and Communication at the University of St Gallen in Switzerland. Before that, I was Head of Communications and Marketing at the University of Liechtenstein and Head of Communications in companies and non-profit organisations. With this background, I bring experience in stakeholder communication and brand management.  

Since my first conference in 2011, I have enjoyed using my knowledge to improve the professional lives of colleagues within the EAIE. I strongly believe that sharing is caring. I have been able to share my experience within the EAIE through conference workshops and sessions, as well as the EAIE Academy. To respond to members’ needs, I also involve my networks, such as international PR associations and the European Association of Communication Professionals in Higher Education. 

Having already served on the Marketing and Recruitment Expert Community steering group, I now want to contribute further to the community, its goals and its values – together with my job-share colleague Kimmo Kuortti – by helping to develop future leaders in marketing and recruitment. Kimmo and I are committed to including more members from less represented countries in Marketing and Recruitment, to increase the potential for mutual learning and ensure inspiring diversity.
