The appointment of the new Office Head coincides with the relocation of the firm’s Liechtenstein headquarters from Schaan to Aeulestrasse 2 in Vaduz. While the physical move has already been completed, employees cannot start working at the new site yet due to the coronavirus. The entire staff is working from home at present. Nevertheless, Lars Klossack and his team are already excited: “Our employees are looking forward to getting settled in at the new, modern location. The coronavirus crisis just means we all have to be patient for a little while longer,” says Klossack. The grand opening celebration for the new headquarters has had to be postponed and has not yet been rescheduled.
