blue-infinity marked the inauguration of its office extension on June 17, 2014 with a celebratory cocktail party. This warm occasion brought together clients, employees and dignitaries alike and included a guided visit of the new 900m2 annex, at No.33 route des Jeunes, Geneva.
Christophe Martin, CEO and Pierre Aebischer, Managing Partner, welcomed over 200 invitees and introduced keynote addresses from Pierre Maudet, Geneva State Councilor and head of the Department of Security and Economy, Yves Cretegny, Managing Director of the Fondation des Terrains Industriels (FTI), and Thomas Lindemann, member of the Group Management Committee and Group HR Director at Richemont. Special mention was made to Guest of Honour Jean-Marc Lamunière, the visionary Swiss architect behind the modern and ergonomic buildings.
“We wish to express our gratitude to all those who so efficiently assisted us during the move to our new premises, which have been ergonomically designed and equipped with the most modern facilities” said Pierre Aebischer.
The decision to expand in Geneva was prompted by numerous factors, notably “to remain close to our clients and maintain our ability to respond flexibly to their needs, typically in areas where offshoring is not an option” explained Christophe Martin.

In his keynote address, State Councilor Pierre Maudet emphasized the importance of the digital economy as a cornerstone for the development of Geneva, and underlined the essential role that blue-infinity was playing in this context. Addressing our employees, he noted: “All of you contribute to maintaining Geneva’s status as an attractive and competitive location…with an established local presence and a global outlook.”
b-i now employs over 400 full-time staff, having grown well over 50% in the past five years, with teams specializing in digital marketing, user experience, software development and infrastructure. The extension is a welcome addition, with blue-infinity now the largest IT provider in the Canton of Geneva.
