Portrait of Pascal Jenny

Pascal Jenny - President, Arosa Tourismus


Pascal Jenny completed his studies as a business economist (lic. oec. publ.) at the University of Zurich. Parallel to studies he pursued an active handball career and played 75 international matches with the Swiss national handball team, mostly as team captain.


In June 2008, Pascal Jenny was appointed Tourism Director in Arosa. This move had a particular resonance with him in the knowledge that his great grandfather, Dr. August Jenny, was the first Director of the Tourist Board in Arosa around 1900. In 2016, the “Arosa Bärenland” of the Arosa Tourist Office, which was largely shaped by Pascal Jenny, was bestowed the Milestone, Swiss tourism’s most significant award, in the “Innovation” category.
