Prophet Welcomes Thomas Wildberger as Partner in Zurich

January 24, 2022

ZURICH – Prophet, the global growth and transformation consultancy, has announced that Thomas Wildberger, the former CEO and creative director at Publicis Switzerland, has joined as a partner. Wildberger will be part of the EMEA Leadership Team as well as heading up the firm’s office in Zurich where he will bring his extensive creative and brand expertise to drive the transformation of Prophet’s Swiss and international clients.

“It’s the age of transformation, so, why not start with myself?” said Wildberger on his move. “It’s time to reframe the real value great creativity can bring to the strategic challenges of business growth and transformation today and its implementation into organizational development. Having also had the pleasure of working with Prophet in the past, on the relaunch of Orange and development of the Salt brand, I’m delighted – and safe in the knowledge – to be joining such a high caliber team of strategic and creative experts.”

Prior to Publicis, Wildberger worked for many years in Germany, including at Jung von Matt and Springer & Jacoby in Hamburg, as well as at his own agency, Römer Wildberger, in Berlin. He has advised national and international corporations such as Migros, Ferrero, UBS, BMW and Mini. Wildberger was named “Advertiser of the Year” in 2016 by Werbewoche magazine and has been recognized for the award-winning campaigns he designed for SWISS.

“Switzerland is a strong market for our EMEA business and having Thomas at the helm in Zurich, with his broad expertise and strong client relationships, will make him an indispensable partner, to our clients and their transformation journeys,” said Tobias Barschneider, senior partner and EMEA regional lead at Prophet. ” We are thrilled to welcome Thomas, as he is an excellent fit for Prophet’s philosophy of closely combining creativity and strategy.”
