Another great person to join Wiz-Team – meet Danielle!

At Wiz-Team, we are all about great people! We are therefore excited to announce that Danielle Lopez will be joining our team as of November. Danielle will become our new Head of Strategy & Business Optimization and, as such, support us in developing new products and services. 

Danielle has it all: a scientific mind, a positive and competitive spirit, vast event experience and… an impressive collection of achievements from her time as an elite softball player (including a silver medal from the PanAm Games)!

With an academic background, Danielle served for 6 years in different event management, strategic planning, and operational roles at USOPC. Danielle has planned and delivered on over 10 multi-sport and international events from the athlete, the National Olympic Committee, and the Local Organising Committee perspective. 

In less than 2 months, you can meet her in our offices in Lausanne or in the virtual Wiz-Team space. We’re sure she’ll be all too happy to get your recommendations on what fun outdoor activities to do in the beautiful Swiss Alps!

JOHANN

CEO

As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
