Alexis Munier takes the reins as Editor in Chief of GstaadLife Magazine
How exactly does a California girl make it up to the Berner Oberland? Via Gstaadstrasse, of course! When I arrived in Zürich in 2003, a fresh-faced writer and opera singer with a hankering for adventure, I rented a room in an old home on Gstaadstrasse. Who knew that a decade later I’d be coming up and slowing down in the village of Gstaad itself?
I’m thrilled to celebrate my ten-year anniversary in Switzerland with a new position as Editor in Chief of GstaadLife. GstaadLife really is “the little engine that could”—the only magazine featuring arts and entertainment, events, business, the great outdoors and style in and around Gstaad in English. It’s a special magazine for a special place, and one to which I’m uniquely suited.
With degrees in music and media, I am the author of nine books and countless articles, which have appeared in publications such as EQUITIES, Harvard Business Review and TIME magazine. After retiring from the stage to concentrate on my blossoming career as a writer, I spent a decade consulting for international organizations along the Arc lémanique, including most recently, the World Economic Forum.
But enough about me, and more about GstaadLife.
You’ll notice some changes to the magazine as well as our online blog as we transition to a fresh, updated version of GstaadLife. Don’t miss our summer season print debut June 21, in which you’ll find new feature articles and other content tailored for the savvy Gstaader. GstaadLife.com will continue to post short articles and summaries throughout the year, so if you haven’t already, subscribe to have them delivered straight to your inbox daily.
I’d like to thank the community for extending me such a warm welcome so far, as well as my predecessor Peter Sonnekus-Williams, in whose capable hands GstaadLife grew into the magazine it is today. I look forward to meeting many of you in the very near future, but in the meantime, I’d be pleased to hear from you by phone or email and gather your insights on GstaadLife and Gstaad living.
