Benoît Gaillard
Independent consultant
Strategy, communications, public affairs


About me. After graduating from the University of Lausanne in philosophy, german and french, I worked as an international expert in higher education quality assurance and as a free-lance consultant in strategy and communications in Switzerland, particularly in political campaigning and public affairs. In 2012, I was hired by Nuria Gorrite, a newly elected member of the regional government, as communications director and policy advisor and then chief of staff (senior policy advisor) beginning 2015. Since 2018, I am running my own consulting business.

I am an elected member of the Lausanne City Council and the president of the board at the emerging arts festival Les Urbaines.
