First Names Group becomes a Public Private Partner of the Greater Zurich Area

30 November 2017

We are proud to have become a Public Private Partner of the Greater Zurich Area AG to support the marketing of the economic area of Zurich.

First Names Group has been working with representatives of the Greater Zurich Area in Zurich and the USA for many years and becoming a Public Private Partner is the next step in strengthening our relationship.

The Greater Zurich Area AG (GZA) assists international companies and entrepreneurs with developing their business activities in the Zurich area. It helps people establish companies easily and expediently in Switzerland’s economic centre. The GZA includes the cantons of Glarus, Grisons, Schaffhausen, Schwyz, Solothurn, Uri, Zug and Zurich, the city of Zurich and the region of Winterthur.

A superregional non-profit organisation, the GZA is owned by the Greater Zurich Area Standortmarketing Foundation.  Each year, the foundation provides funds to the GZA to enable it to achieve its targets.

Public Private Partners like First Names Group support the foundation in marketing the Greater Zurich Area as an economic area abroad. The foundation benefits from the marketing expertise of each of the private partners and from access to their networks. In return, private partners benefit from networking with the GZA, representatives of the cantons and companies considering an investment in Switzerland.

Tony Rinderer, Managing Director of our Zurich office, commented:

"Joining GZA’s partner network formalises our recognition of the many benefits that the GZA has to offer potential investors, as well as our commitment to supporting the long-term competitiveness of the Swiss economic landscape.”
