Alumni HighlightIt was during one of her undergraduate business courses at Pepperdine University when Dominique Bleichenbacher realized that learning about management or financial practices and tools is helpful, however without the most important asset, the employees, all of these theories and tools will not lead to success. This realization fueled her interest in HR and eventually her wish to found Belana GmbH.
After she completed an MBA in Management and Human Resources Management at Robinson, Dominique returned to Switzerland. The following 8 years, she worked in various positions within HR for several international companies in the Banking and the FMCG sector and also spent a brief period in Dubai. During this time, Dominique helped several Beebe students secure jobs in Europe.
Her vision for Belana GmbH is to provide small to medium-size companies and individuals with the professional, efficient yet personal HR know-how and support they need in order to be successful locally and internationally while employing motivated employees.
