Picturepark Management Team

Experienced, long-term thinking and responsible.

Chairman & Founder

Bruno Jehle – After an apprenticeship as a lithographer, Bruno Jehle started a printing company with the aim of offering affordable but high-quality printing. He then started a pre-press company and one of the first Internet service providers in Switzerland.

Additional innovations included a precursor to today’s content management systems, and a tool that made high-volume data transfers feasible over slower, phone-based Internet connections. After completing his PG as an Information Specialist, Jehle also invented a reprostation for GLAM institutions. His goal for the station was that it require virtually no training to operate so that institutions could more easily digitize and archive their printed and physical works.

As the Chairman, Jehle offers the Board strategic advice and innovative ideas. Connect with Bruno Jehle on LinkedIn.
