Our QX-crew shares the passion for people and their individual journeys through life. Each day, we accompany and support members of various backgrounds, personalities and careers. We find it a pleasure to meet up and to discuss with them about the latest developments in their lives- whether it is over the office desk, after work or at one of our events that take place around the world.
