Wiz-Team keeps growing ahead of action-packed months

Meet the four newest women of Wiz-Team!

International Women’s Day is the perfect occasion to announce our four new team members, Marie-Anne Midy, Ahn Nguyen, Yuliia Marusenko, and Anna Kameneva who have all joined Wiz-Team earlier this month in roles from product development to project delivery. These four talented, experienced, and exciting women will play an important role in the ongoing evolution of our company, bringing innovative insights and smart solutions to our clients around the world.

The latest hiring class makes Wiz-Team, which operates in a traditionally male-dominated industry, home to a workforce made up of 40% women. Though we still have plenty of room for improvement, we are proud to be trending above our European industry average of 17% and competing with some of the bigger tech giants which average around 32%.  

The technology industry still has a lot of work to do in closing the gender equity gap for women across all technology roles; nevertheless, we are delighted to be an organisation where women play critical roles in driving the future of event technology from development to delivery.

Tim Goethals, Wiz-Team COO, says: “We are always looking for the best talent in the event management and product development sectors and fortunate to add four highly skilled women to our team at the start of this year. We look forward to learning from their diverse experiences and to what they will bring to Wiz-Team’s future!” 

Marie-Anne joins Wiz-Team as Head of Sport Business based out of Lausanne. She brings to Wiz-Team 10+ years of experience working in sport associations, event operations, and project management, most recently at European Athletics. 

In this role she will be charged with leading, serving, and supporting the Swiss-based delivery team while also playing a critical role in several special projects.

As Wiz-Team’s newest member to project and product delivery, Anh is Wiz-Team’s Sport Applications Delivery Manager.  This blended role will have Anh serving both the Product and Operations teams in Lausanne, adding seven years of experience in sport services, project management, event delivery, and accreditation operations from the Canadian Olympic Committee. 

A recent graduate with a degree in Technology and Solution Design, Anna joins Wiz-Team as our newest Manual QA Engineer, bringing fresh ideas and insights from her experiences working in business intelligence systems and solutions. Yuliia is Wiz-Team’s newest Business Analyst.  She adds over seven years of experience bridging the gap between business teams and developers, facilitating the transformation of client needs into innovative digital solutions.

All four women bring a combined 30+ years of sport event management, solution delivery, and product development experience, which will come in handy as we look ahead to an action-packed year for Wiz-Team – stay tuned for what’s in store!

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.
