My name is Peter Forster, I am Swiss German from Davos, Canton Graubünden. I have been in Singapore for close to 7 years. My wife and I have two sons born in 2013 and 2019, currently at SSiS and EtonHouse Zhong Hua Pre-School.
Trained as a lawyer with studies at the University of Zurich and Hochschule St.Gallen, I work in Business Strategy, Private Equity & Due Diligence consulting, helping to develop and implementing growth strategies for businesses in Asia. Prior to this, my 25 years of work experience include compliance, legal, and investor relations consulting, working e.g. for Credit Suisse, the Swiss law firm Lenz & Staehelin, and the Australian Film Finance Corporation. I have been working as an independent Business Strategy consultant with an international client base since 1999, serving in various roles as senior counsel.
The Swiss School in Singapore plays an important role in comforting mainly European families in the transitions from Switzerland and the EU to Singapore. Furthermore, the Swiss School in Singapore plays an important function in transporting culture, sports, or other educational values from Switzerland and the EU. These Swiss and European values are communicated and represented not only, but more importantly by the Swiss School. I am delighted to get the chance to contribute my time and effort when there is a need to provide assistance as well as develop initiatives in the above-mentioned fields. I have always considered giving back to our community, e.g. by sharing experience in the strategy, management and marketing as a part of our values, in support to the SSiS School.
Last but not least, I enjoy outdoor sports activities and spending as much time as possible with my kids which I find very life-enriching.
