Anahita Shakour-Wiegand

Senior Consultant

Language is my passion. I grew up in a bilingual environment until I started at the German School in Tehran. Hereafter, I concentrated on foreign languages and communication during my studies which included a year of Romance Studies at the Universite de Neuchatel, then Journalism & English/American studies a the University of Fribourg. Immediately after obtaining my licentiate (Swiss university degree), I gained hands-on professional experience in the marketing and PR departments of architectural companies. ERCO Leuchten and the designer furniture company Knoll International, where I worked as a manager in Marketing Communications, sparked my enthusiasm for design and architectural topics today.

At Sympra I work as a Senior Consultant in charge of editing topics related to real estate and construction, primarily providing my expertise in all areas related to PR. Previous to my time here, I gained experience in the construction sector for six years as a senior consultant in an agency for construction, housing, and furnishing. Being married to an architect, in our spare time we follow current developments in architecture and interior and exterior design as well as in product design, art, and music. I have done work in nonprofit organizations which support projects that focus on children and youth.
