Manuel Marquina

My interests lay in tech, design and art. Some of these I studied. Husband of one, father of two, I live and work around Zurich, Switzerland, spending my day drinking large amounts of Cappuccinos, reading books and listening to my amateuresque vinyl collection, preferably from weird punk bands.

At Evernote, I’m leading the EMEA Business team out of the European headquarters in Zurich. I had the pleasure working with companies like Freitag, Publicis, Uber or the UK Government, increasing their productivity across teams.

In 2017 I co-founded the fashion brand Pin Friends, creating small pieces of art, allowing people to express themselves. We introduce customers to exclusive collaborations with some of the most relevant independent artists and creatives from Switzerland and Germany.

Since 2015, I’m writing and curating news and articles on the topic of productivity for Scope. An innovative Swiss News Startup.

While studying Design at the University for the Creative Art, I sometimes write about design and digital trends and how to stay productive, over at Volt & Gestalt. The Newsletter got featured by Mailchimp as outstanding and ‚Out of the Ordinary‘.

Additionally, I act as a guest lecturer and juror for the Mobile Business Award from University St. Gallen.
