{ The people behind }

Pharma communication is our passion. From the first customer contact to the finished project, you will be supported and advised by our interdisciplinary team from the fields of science, marketing communications, corporate design, corporate communications, multimedia and organisation.

Urs Scherrer

As a child he wanted to become a carpenter, teacher and journalist. Today he is a polygraphic specialist, production team leader, and IT admin. The man with the eye for detail, the sense of the soft- and hardware and the passion for multimedia is the calm pole in the agency. For over 15 years he has remained loyal to STO Pharmawerbung AG. The father of two and self-confessed hard rock fan would like to give the world a little more leisure time with a "time expander".


Seera Schauwecker

Known for her wide selection of chewing gum with surprise effects, this demanding creative is always ready to discover new things. She studied visual communication, she finds inspiration in everyday life and nature. True to her job, Seera Schauwecker likes the wonderful blaze of colours in autumn. Her list of things that she still absolutely wants to experience is very long.


Renee McGrath

Driven by enormous dedication, multi-talented Renee McGrath makes the impossible possible for her clients again and again. She is a graphic designer, marketing planner in one. Conceptually strong, imaginative and helpful. At work she appreciates the space and diversity STO Pharmawerbung AG affords her. She dreams of a road trip through the US. Then she could also indulge her passion, namely singing along loudly to the car radio.


Nicole Cavegn

Her friends call her "Nikipedia" - and of course there's a reason for that! The human biologist with research experience in neurobiology impresses with her expertise, but also knows almost always an answer to questions outside her field of study. Her team loves her calm nature, because Nicole at work is down-to-earth. She likes to travel "down under" or anywhere else in the world. At STO, the globetrotter likes the variety. No day is like the other!

Helena Zähnler

With a wink of the eye, this creative power woman describes herself with three words: the boss’ wife. In fact Helena Zähnler masterfully juggles numbers, recruits the right professionals onto the constantly growing STO team and is a partner and confidant in one for the about 20 interdisciplinary people at the agency. She is very interested in art and culture and has her own studio, where modern, abstract acrylic images emerge. Painting means freedom for Helena Zähnler. She can turn off and tune out everything else around her.


Andrea Lusti

She delivers her clients the right message in the best form possible. Established expertise and over ten years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry qualify her. Commitment, sensitivity and joy at work distinguish her. The educated translator, marketing planner and senior consultant has been with STO Pharmawerbung AG since 2004. Andrea Lusti finds her balance with cooking, laughing and downhill jogging with dog Tamina.


Manfred Zähnler

Advertising is his passion. It naturally corresponds to his versatile range of interests, has become his beloved profession and lets him successfully bring his many years of experience into play. Agency boss Manfred Zähnler appreciates intensive customer contact and fostering his employees. Customers appreciate his open and direct manner, sparring partner character and the mix of social and professional skills which he offers. There are at least 1000 things the family man and fitness fan still wants to experience.


Martina Komani

Eigentlich war ihr Berufstraum Zoohalterin. Heute beschreibt sie sich selbst als «Agenda der Familie». Auch bei der STO hat die Marketingassistentin den Überblick über sämtliche Excel-Listen, Kalendereinträge und Abgabetermine. STO-Halterin? Vielleicht. Jedenfalls hat sie in Sachen Marketing alle Zügel fest in der Hand. Nur für ihren Kleiderschrank gibt es noch kein System, denn Martina checkt täglich Onlineshopping-Seiten und sucht nach neuen Teilen, um die sie ihren Kleiderschrank ergänzen kann.


Isabelle Hauser

She now makes advertising because her childhood dreams – astronaut and millionaire – have just not worked out. The former hurdle sprinter and mother of two is convivial, curious and conscientious – and that’s a good thing: the profession of polygraphic specialist makes Isabelle Hauser into a "control freak". Her training as a specialist in the printing and packaging industries brings more facets into the agency on a daily basis. And last but not least she has magical powers with which she can make sweets disappear without a trace.


Nelly Sommer Stillhart

Nomen est Omen: Nelly's favorite season is the summer. Whether hiking, relaxing in the garden, cycling or playing golf – the energetic family wife spends her time outdoors. After her apprenticeship as a draftsman, she attended the commercial school. Today, Nelly supervises and manages payment transactions in our office.


Katja Gueinzius

The immunologist would like to have a diploma as AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego), unfortunately no suitable course was found so far. Katja Gueinzius has more than ten years of professional experience in the pharmaceutical industry and knows like no other how to make complicated facts understandable. This is exactly why she works at STO Pharmawerbung as a communications consultant and medical advisor. “Advertising with facts makes sense” says the scientist about her creative work in the agency where she is particularly impressed by the mix of generations and skills as well as the team spirit. What Katja is still missing – to her absolute happiness – is a “really functioning rain cover while cycling” – which would be of great service to the weatherproof cyclist in her favourite season, winter!


Alexander Fecker

Wenn Alex eine Aufgabe in die Hände bekommt, ist eines sicher: Der Polygraf erledigt seine Arbeit exakt, pünktlich und mit Gelassenheit. So bringt er seine Projekte auf geradem Weg ins Tor. Äh, Ziel. In seiner Freizeit spielt er gerne Fussball, seine Leidenschaft ist – richtig geraten – der FC St. Gallen. Seine liebste Jahreszeit? Der Sommer, denn an langen warmen Tagen kann länger Fussball gespielt werden. Eine Erfahrung fehlt jedoch noch in seinem Fussball-Werdegang: Ein Champions League-Finale im Stadion zu erleben.


Juliane Albrecht

Juliane has completed her commercial training in a pharmaceutical company. She was then able to move within the company to her desired department, marketing, where she had contact with STO Pharmawerbung AG for the first time. After further training as a marketing specialist, she wanted to get to know "the other side", agency life. As a consultant, she loves the variety of everyday work, the varied and challenging tasks and the cooperation with different clients. Juliane impresses her team with her open-minded, cheerful and calm manner. The power woman finds the balance to everyday office life in her passion, the crossfit.


Marc Strub

Als Kind wollte er Stuntman werden – heute sorgt Marc stattdessen als Grafiker bei der STO für actionreiche Werbung. Gekonnt übersetzt er komplexe Sachverhalte in cooles Grafik Design. Der Filmwelt ist er aber treu geblieben; die Pixar Animation Studios rangieren in seinem Lieblingskünstler-Ranking ganz oben. Als Freund der Welt gefällt ihm an der STO der Teamgeist ganz besonders. Eine vielversprechende zweite Geschäftsidee hat er allerdings auch noch in petto: Die Erfindung einer Maschine, die den Geist der Frauen versteht.


Jana Berisha

Ihre Faszination? Sprache und Kommunikation. Als Texterin und Projektleiterin sorgt sie für Werbebotschaften, die in Kopf und Herz ankommen. Beeindrucken kann man Jana mit richtiger Kommasetzung – auch auf WhatsApp und in «Schwiizerdütsch». Abseits der STO geht es detektivischer zu und her. Es gibt kein True Crime-Fall, den sie nicht kennt. Ob Podcasts oder Magazine: keine Fallakte und DNA-Analyse ist vor ihr sicher.


Nicole Muster

Nicole is an expert when it comes to the world of pharmaceuticals. As a pharmaceutical assistant, she has not only gained experience in pharmacies and health insurance companies, but has also worked for a pharmaceutical distributor. We know her as a motivated doer who is always looking for the best possible solution - whether for her customers or her team colleagues. She finds ideas for this while horseback riding or walking in nature.


Janine Nanni

Janine is an early bird and therefore one of the first in the agency. In a good mood she is engaged in her polygraphic work – even though as a child her dream job was “nothing with computers”. As a mum of two children, flexibility and spontaneity are part of her everyday life – and that's what we appreciate about her. By the way, she would spontaneously travel to the Maldives again…


Melissa Thoma

She likes to get to the bottom of things: Melissa once wanted to become a marine biologist, but then decided not to. In the summer of 2019 she completed her training as a polygraph with top marks. No surprise, because Melissa has the ability to manage several things simultaneously and keep a cool head, no matter how hectic everyday life may be. It is these qualities that are of the greatest use in agency life. Her friends say she is a " chatty and likeable whirlwind". The bundle of energy seldom gets really out of breath - whether as a trumpet player in the orchestra or when creating, designing and layouting content for all kinds of print and screen media.


Robin Neff

Our mediamatician Robin is one of the youngest in the team. But despite his youth he has a lot of experience in developing and programming websites. As a child he always wanted to be an astronaut on the moon. Today he stands with both feet firmly on the ground and captures it with his camera. Because Robin is an enthusiastic photographer. He lets the concentrated calmness of photography flow into his work as well.
