When André Golliez joined the project in early 2017, there was not yet anything like “Wedecide”. André had just got a mail that put the not-so-great 2016 into perspective with an outlook to better days, and he wanted to know more, and later decided to offer his advice, experience, and network.
André started with a master in computer science from ETH Zurich in 1986 and spent many years as IT manager in the engineering industry and the financial sector, and since 1999 as self-employed IT consultant for large institutions searching expertise in IT strategy and IT governance. From 2004 to 2009, he was President of the Swiss Computer Science Society.
André is a dedicated data politician. In recent years, he co-founded and still presides the Swiss Open Data Association Opendata.ch, and the Swiss Data Alliance, a non-partisan initiative for data-driven innovation, growth and well-being in Switzerland. He believes in the usefulness of the Wedecide model and aims to help it becoming realized from small to large scale.
