Roland Maurhofer studied law at the University of St. Gallen HSG and did his doctorate with a dissertation on Swiss foreign policy and the history of diplomacy under Professor Alois Riklin.

He earned his first management spurs as a project manager at a large Swiss insurance group and in the regulatory area of the Swiss stock exchange.
For 15 years, he headed the legal services and administrative board secretariat of listed global market leaders in the industrial and service sectors.
