Changing the paradigm
80% of the world’s goods transit through a container. Yet containers haven’t changed in 60 years with many businesses having to fit inside this box.
The shipping container is the building block of our globalized economy. By upgrading it with new technologies and services, we are impacting the whole of logistics.
AELER containers are stronger, insulated, super smart, more sustainable and have a higher payload to benefit all kinds of industries.
We’re reinventing the container so that it adapts to your needs. Not the other way round. This new paradigm opens up a world of possibilities.
Join the revolution!

I am a startup and scaleup veteran, having created more than 10 departments to accompany growth and change situations. I love the intensity in these situations. I am passionate about management sciences and have taught the subject at 7 universities (so far!); I also enjoy low-key vintage cars, studying history and cultural differences, and helping my children navigate their lives.
Entrepreneurial management consultant helping innovative businesses to scale up. I enjoy things in motion, be it companies or myself through sports. My perception is that change is the only constant and so I’m focusing on guiding people and businesses to navigate it. My passion for sustainable solutions has led me to work for companies that challenge the status quo, and here I am.
With my background in FMCG and SaaS, I’ve helped numerous clients transform their businesses through the adoption of new products and innovations. I am an entrepreneur at heart and I love engaging with new ideas, finding elegant solutions and delivering value to my colleagues and clients. In my me time, I am eager to explore the world and create with my hands- enjoying cooking, DIY projects, floral design and being in nature.
Passionate engineer, close to customers and their needs, keen on technology. My approach is to stimulate the development of people in order to put them in a position of success. I managed and re-organized a large company in Switzerland to integrate it into an international group. I have also managed and developed a global business unit in Switzerland, Germany, Poland, USA and China. It's so rewarding to hang out with Aelerian, I feel 20 years younger!
With a background in graphic design and branding, I have been focusing on UX & UI for the last couple of years. My approach to design has always been holistic, focusing on the whole journey performed by the user and in the optimization of their experience, end-to-end. I am a true believer of the impact design has on people’s lives, and aim to increase this impact in any possible ways.
I love simple and well engineered things: furniture, computers, robots, algorithms, nature. I’m proud that my work in real-time critical software for neuroprosthetics and exoskeletons has been published in high impact academic journals. You will find me with my team seeking simple solutions to complex problems, from conception to implementation, and worrying over data. My motto? Be kind, excel at what you are doing (and play squash)!
We take care of one another. Ambition cannot come at the expense of one’s health: Human first!
We think we, not me and them. Changing the world is only possible if we work well as a team.
Aiming for the sky is the best way to learn how to fly! We want to help make the world a better place and we believe that, together, we can do it.
We believe that change is a force of good and we surf that wave all the time. Change and innovations are the only constants in progress.
“We see the container like a synapse for the brain of the logistics industry. We will re-invent it, thanks to our amazing crew!”
