Amélie Salin

Amelie is a newly certified PMP community member, based in Geneva. She spent 17 years in business operations managing teams and running projects in various industries and multiple countries across Latin America and Africa, where she lived for 8 years working for multinational companies, before relocating to Geneva in 2016.


For quite some time she was willing to structure and formalize her project management skills and methodology and eventually add value to her profile, but found it challenging between business travel and family life.
But as life’s unexpected events are always a good reason to take a step back and think different, when her last role ended for economic reasons in October 2018, she immediately took this opportunity to dedicate herself to preparing for the PMP certification, while defining her next career step … And let’s be honest, also finally enjoying the benefits of living at the feet of the Jura mountains.


Certified in February, she is now actively looking for her next role in the Geneva market and participating to all kinds of networking events, workshops and development opportunities to increase her chances for success. This is also why she decided to join the PMI Switzerland chapter.
