Our company and team

Our history

At SCA, we believe that learning should be associated with a joyful experience and fond memories.

Our mission is to bring the joy of learning closer to business executives and their teams.

We do this through a range of the highest quality educational techniques that we impart through mixed teaching methods.

The result is a smooth learning experience that not only leads leaders to growth and success, but is also fun.

Gone are the days of boring hours in the classroom, today we enable you to learn when and wherever you want while on the go.

Founders of SCA-René Müller & Thierry Hostettler

Our founders

The Swiss Connect Academy was founded in 2018 by Thierry Hostettler and René Müller . The two experienced business people with an entrepreneurial spirit were convinced that the need for modern learning techniques for business training was growing in companies. They decided to combine René’s experience with innovative technologies and Thierry’s experience with high-quality pedagogy in order to jointly create a platform that meets the highest quality standards in order to bring the joy of learning closer to executives.

René Müller was the owner and CEO of GMC Software for 18 years. During that time, he transformed the printing equipment reseller business into a specialized software development company. After the company was sold in 2012, he became President of the Waterkiosk Foundation, a charity that works to provide communities in Tanzania with clean water. A few years ago he founded Connect, a secure, in-house tool that teams and managers can use to communicate seamlessly with one another. This platform forms the backbone of the digital offer of the Swiss Connect Academy. René lives and works in Switzerland, is married and has two grown children. 

Thierry Hostettler taught at the Collège du Châtelet in Biel, Switzerland, where he was also co-director, until he switched to a position at the University of Bern, where he taught general didactics and mathematics didactics for 8 years. He then helped found the Haute Ecole Pédagogique BEJUNE, where he was Professor of Mathematics Didactics and Educational Science and where he held the position of Vice Dean, a position he held until AB4C Consulting was founded in 2006. This was to become the forerunner of the Swiss Connect Academy, which uses high quality educational techniques to train companies in negotiation, leadership and management for clients like the Swiss Police Institute and Swatch Group Services. He lives and works in Switzerland and his hobbies include sports, music and oenology.
