Johannes is CEO and co-founder of GetYourGuide, an online marketplace for travel activities.

He graduated with distinction from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology with a Master's Degree in Biochemistry. While still in university, he successfully led the company to its first venture capital round. After a brief interlude as Visiting Associate at the Boston Consulting Group, he decided to join GetYourGuide as full-time CEO in June 2009. The company has since become the world's largest online platform for travel activities, and grown to a size of more than 70 full-time employees in offices in Zurich, Berlin & Las Vegas.
