An alternative outlook on life

 “Wow! Great! Wild asparagus seeds, you don’t see that often,” says Edmond as he pulls into the side of the road near the train station at Chateau d’Oëx in Switzerland to collect some.

The world record breaker in speed snowboarding is probably one of the most unpretentious and hospitable people that you could ever meet.

His home is called “the chateau in the sky” by the locals because it’s perched high above the town of Chateau d’Oëx at the end of a winding gravel path. The views are breathtaking, and in the distance you can even see Mont Blanc, everywhere you look there are mountains and the constant tinkle of cow bells. What an idyllic place to live, train and work.
If he’s running down the slopes to train, hiking up them in search of mushrooms or finely slicing home-grown tomatoes with his specialty cook knives, Edmond does it all to the full, giving each thing he does his undivided attention and concentration. Away from the lime-light and communing with nature is how Edmond and his family have constructed their life for the last five years in Switzerland.



“Sure, I’ve been approached by different companies, but you know, it just didn’t seem to fit. I can’t work with people if we don’t share the same values - that’s important to me. I can’t endorse something I don’t believe in. Hager just felt right, not just a sponsor a real partner.”

You might ask yourself why Hager, a leading supplier of solutions and services for electrical installations in residential, commercial and industrial buildings is sponsoring a sportsman…? Extreme ambitions, a passion for what we do, an innovative spirit, technological knowledge and long-term thinking are just some of the factors that reunite us.

Below there are four themed stories linking this Frenchman of many talents and interests - a nature lover, a family man, a cook, an olive grower, a sportsman capable of pushing his limits – to us, his sponsor, his partner.

When you break a world record, you don’t do it alone; the family, the team and partners are all there living and sharing these exciting and intense moments of passion and satisfaction.”
