Vas Narasimhan

Chief Executive Officer

Novartis

“Nestled in the heart of Europe, I’ve found that Basel is very internationally minded and open to newcomers. This may be because it is a border town and because historically immigrants have found their way to Basel, including some of the founders of the pharmaceutical and chemical companies that have become global leaders. My experience here has only been positive.

Switzerland is a great place to live, and I am very happy here. The landscape is breathtaking, and there is good social and healthcare infrastructure. The overall quality of life here is very high. There’s a lot to love!”
