The Stamford Team

Executive Management

Jenny Johnston

Founder / Managing Director

My personal passions are developing people and building relationships! Thankfully my career in recruitment has enabled me to focus on both. I was born in Florida, many years ago, and started my career in sales management at a young age in the fashion sector. I’ll never forget my experience in 2000 calling my first IT prospective client....not only did I only have one short speech in German, I barely knew the difference between an operating system and an application! I was lucky that the Swiss were so accommodating and supportive and fifteen years on, I can say what a lucky person I am to be able to still do what I love with such great people to work with!

Nicole Gruenenfelder Fuchs


Born and grown up in Switzerland, I spent a few years in the United States and other countries and therefore combine my Swissness with an international touch. My heart is in customer service and, having grown up in the hospitality industry, service is in my blood while my education is in accounting, HR and Tax matters.
I've been with Stamford since 2002 and I remember when we started in a small office in Basel, just us 3 girls, and now I think ``What happened?``. The experience of leading a company to its success and giving people great jobs is a treasure and I am very proud of all of us for having achieved this.
Now I am responsible for continually expanding Group customer activities, managing the Stamford Group's operations and taking the lead on all legal and HR compliance issues. I am also a member of the board at Swiss PRM. There we support our members in all matters regarding the Body-Leasing industry.

Christian Ziegler


Born and grown up in Switzerland, I’m one of the ones to bring Swissness into our international working environment. Punctual as a Swiss watch I like to start meetings on the time agreed what can be quite challenging in our multitask and fast moving business. With a university degree in accounting, controlling and finance and more than 10 years of related work experience I’m responsible for all financial aspects of the Stamford group companies as well as managing the human resources and accounting team. When not being in the office I like to spend time in nature with biking, jogging or hiking.

Mark Dowsett

Director of Sales Excellence

I was born & bred in the south of England, but developed an early affinity for Germanic culture. This lead to me studying German at university and then moving to Frankfurt for my first role in the recruitment business almost 20 years ago. A few years later, I discovered my spiritual home amongst the mountains and punctual trains of Switzerland, where I’ve remained more or less ever since. At Stamford, I’m responsible for leading the Group Services Division, incorporating Managed Services and HR/Payroll Services offered by Talentis Solutions and the Group, as well as encouraging the team to eat more broccoli!

Information Technology

Björn Milz

Director Information Technology

Born in Germany, raised in England and partly in Denmark, I finally settled in Switzerland in 2003. My recruitment experience started off in Munich as an IT recruiter back in 1996 and has seen me move via Berlin and Frankfurt before landing in Zürich. Since then, I have built and managed teams within Telecoms and Engineering.

Outside of office hours I like to spend my free time actively. I love to play football even though I am the worst player in my team. Besides playing football, you might see me sailing, mountain-and motor-biking as well as skiing during the wintertime.

Daniel Shalom

Managing Consultant

My name is Daniel and I come from London, England, but have been living in Switzerland since 2005. Before settling in Switzerland, I lived for a while in a few different places, including Venezuela, Brazil and Spain. I started life in Switzerland as an English teacher, but made the switch into recruitment with Stamford in 2011, and have never looked back.

I specialize in IT Infrastructure, with a particular focus on database administrators and developers, systems engineers, virtualization and storage. Outside of work I spend most of my time with family and friends, and following the ups and downs of my beloved Arsenal FC.

I look forward to meeting you soon

Stephen Moore

Born and raised in bonnie Scotland, I have been recruiting since 2010 and have been working with Stamford Consultants since 2013. I trained as a pharmaceutical recruitment consultant but moved into IT recruitment as an account manager for Oracle, where I assisted their recruitment across various global business units. Following this I began recruiting into the Swiss market specializing in the Java ecosystem.

I am now responsible for the development recruitment market where we have a team of experience consultants recruiting in the areas of web, mobile, and cross-language programming. Our team is focused on assisting software engineers to advance their careers across Switzerland. We have achieved this through developing close relationships with our candidates and building lasting relationships with our clients by assisting them in finding the best people on the market.

Alejandro Chausse

Son of a Swiss father and a Spanish mother, I was born and raised in the lovely Mediterranean city of Barcelona. Growing up in a family where I have shared constantly both cultures and also attended the Swiss School (in Barcelona and Mexico City) since I was 5 years old, my heart has been always divided between Spain and Switzerland until the point that I decided to move to Zurich two years ago to finish my studies in Civil Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

Before joining Stamford my previous experience has been always within the Industry sector. I had great opportunities during my studies to work for well known engineering companies within the Civil Engineering and Industrial sector where I have gained the knowledge that I apply working as a Engineering Recruitment Consultant.

In my free time I love to play paddle, spending time with friends and family and practice one of my favorite pleasures, cooking and trying new restaurants.

Olga Reisenhauer

If you are interested in a new professional opportunity in Switzerland, I am happy to support you!

Erlisa Lajqi

I am Erlisa and I was born in Kosovo but moved to Zurich when I was 3 years old so I practically grew up in Switzerland. I started my career in the Administration and Service sectors during my apprenticeship. After that I finished the Swiss Baccalaureate for commercial services and to gain more work experience, I worked part-time in a call center during my studies. Thanks to that experience I realized that I like to have direct customer contact and love to fulfill the customers’ needs. Thus, in April 2015 I started my career in recruitment as I found the possibility to help candidates in finding their dream job very fulfilling.

When I’m out of the office I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to concerts and actively spending time in the nature.

Laia Grao

Leroy Wong

I'm originally from Switzerland but grew up in Malaysia. Keen to increase my international exposure, I tied the knot and returned to motherland.

I was amazed learning about recruitment and how close it's related to the career I have built in Real Estate back in Kuala Lumpur. Without a doubt I knew that this is something I want to do and want to be great at so I'm able to help as many people as possible discover careers that make them and their families happy.

I love doing pretty much anything adventurous, trying new things and getting to know people.

Feel free to contact me anytime. I'm looking forward to it

Sara Knapton

My name is Sara and I was born and raised in Harrogate, North Yorkshire in England. From a very early age, I had a huge passion for people. As a child, I was always very inquisitive with an affinity for the underdog. I would often terrify my parents by disappearing, only to be found minutes later chatting to a homeless person on the street and sharing my sweets and pocket money. This passion for people lead me to take on various voluntary posts, working mostly with disadvantage children and to study Psychology at Leeds Beckett University .Shortly after graduating, I started my career in recruitment as a Resourcer for a privately owned SME in the North of England. I moved to Switzerland in 2015 and haven’t looked back since.

Vladina Zlatkova

Talent Acquisition Specialist

I am a graduate Psychology student with a great interest in people. My desire to work in recruitment appeared many years ago when I was part of a small organization where my employer gave me the task to interview several candidates. What I mostly liked about this task was that I helped someone to find something new for a change. Several years have passed and this hasn’t changed. It is great to have the possibility to be involved in helping people change. Since recruitment requires working with people, I can say that my profession is my passion. It is always interesting to understand what drives people, what inspires them and what doesn’t.

I started my career as a sales agent in the first year of my studies. Then I moved to customer support where I learned how to satisfy the customers’ needs. I can say that the gathered experience combined with my university degree and my great interest in people help me a lot to successfully evaluate them.

Back Office

Simone Wissle

HR Manager

I was born in France and still live there, and I am married with 2 boys , so I have quite a harem at home!

After my degree, 14 years ago in a small Swiss Semiconductor company I started as Assistant of the Management Team. A few months later the company was taken over by Motorola and the HR person left due to lack of English knowledge. This was the opportunity for me to jump into Human Resources! Of course I then went back to school to get certified in Human Resources and Swiss law.

Since December 2008, I am happy to be the HR Manager of Stamford Group, taking care of all our employees and contractors. I am an open minded person, proactive and flexible which enables me to make our employees happy. I am specialised in Swiss Human Resources, from general administration to permit, salary, social security, insurance etc…

My time off is filled up with my family, and friends. Good food, wine and holidays describe my hobbies the best. This is to be expected, I am French!

Matthew Moore

Technology Manager

I’m British-Italian by nationality, British by nature. I moved around a lot when I was younger and came to enjoy visiting new places, getting into new cultures, and (most importantly) trying new kinds of food.

After getting my degree I came to Switzerland to work as a recruiter for Stamford, based in Zürich. A couple of years later my passion for things electronic had cemented me firmly in the role of “IT guy” and it was then formalized, making me responsible for anything that runs on electricity, including this website and the coffee machines.

In my spare time I swim or snowboard (depending on season), go to the gym, and look for new restaurants to try in and around Zürich. The latter unfortunately heavily offsets the former.

Ivan Santos

Digital Marketing and Social Media

Born in Spain, I have lived most of my life abroad, mostly in the UK and in the US.

After completing my postgraduate in Digital Media Management at the University of London, my partner and I decided to relocate to Switzerland – and we haven’t looked back! Prior to joining Stamford, I worked in content marketing within executive education in the UK and start-up environments in Zürich.

In my spare time I enjoy playing football, tennis and I’m an avid chess player. I also take advantage of the incredible Swiss Alps scenery to go off the beaten track and take some nice shots with my Canon!
