Beni Huggel Schwiiz
Benjamin Huggel oder “Beni Huggel Schwiiz” ist einer unserer vier Co-Founders.
Die Gründung des Athletes Networks reifte lange in Beni, da er nach seiner aktiven Fussballkarriere jeden Tag von Neuem realisierte, dass der Verlust des geliebten Berufs schwierige Veränderungen mit sich bringt.
Benjamin Huggel or “Beni Huggel Schwiiz” is one of our four Co-Founders. Why “Beni Huggel Schwiiz”? A great supporter of Beni as a footballer and human being was his long-time coach Christian Gross. From the very beginning, he believed in Beni and gave him the nickname “Beni Huggel Schwiiz”. When asked by Beni about how Christian came up with the addition “Schwiiz”, he said: “You have what it takes to become a national player – this is why I call you that! The rest of the story is well-known: Beni was able to live up to the expectations and make his dreams come true. The establishment of the Athletes Network developed a long time in Beni, because after his active football career he realised every day anew that the loss of his beloved profession involves difficult changes. In his own words: “I previously thought far too little about the end of my career. There was a lack of awareness and I didn’t know who to turn to. A strong network supports this process very much and ensures an optimal transition into the post-sport career”. We are very pleased to have Beni with us as co-founder!
