About Alex Miescher

As a pilot, manager, and consultant I’ve always had the privilege to travel the world, which I found enriching. However, I always kept my residence in the region of Solothurn, Switzerland. A place of power in the Swiss midlands, where, despite its central location, a soothing feeling of understatement and laid-back attitude is lived. The regular trips all over the world give me cultural openness and adaptability – the rootedness in my homeland, stability and peace.

I have been married to Sibylle Miescher-Jost since 1993 and we have two children, Yara (1998) and Samuel (2001).

From 1991 to 2009, I was a professional military pilot, flight instructor, airbase commander (ranked Colonel of General Staff) and staff officer for the Swiss Air Force, flying PC-7, P-3, Vampires, F-5 Tigers, and F/A-18 Hornets. From 2009 to 2018, I acted as General Secretary of the Swiss Football Association.

As of 2000, I started to gain experience as a coach and consultant, initially as a freelancer. Since August 2018, this has been my main profession.
