About me

Silver Nest GmbH provides tailored consulting, management and administrative services for both companies and individuals relocating to Switzerland. We are specialised in international moves, real estate (short-term rentals, apartments, houses), administration, lifestyle management as well as childcare.

The founder and director of Silver Nest GmbH is Caroline Kaufmann. Born in Switzerland, she spent the first 20 years of her life both in the French and German part of the country. She graduated from The Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne before she started her career at the historic luxury hotel Baur au Lac in the city centre of Zurich.

After this successful start into working life she joined Hilton Hotels where she ran through several management programs and held leading positions in the most reputable hotels of the chain in Rome, Abu Dhabi, Paris, Vienna and New York City. In New York City she was employed by the legendary Waldorf-Astoria Hotel where she played an integral part in accommodating customers from all around the World. She has always worked in demanding environments where royals, presidents, diplomats and celebrities call themselves at home. As Director of International Sales at the Waldorf-Astoria, she took care of the international clientele and ensured that they had memorable stays far away from their homes.

Thanks to her professional journey as well as several international moves, she has experienced the requirements and needs of expatriates herself. Having travelled to all continents she quickly familiarised herself with various cultures and discovered the importance of collaborating with other people. This know-how combined with her dedication and detailed approach as well as her connection to Switzerland makes Caroline and her team the perfect provider of high end and very personalised relocation solutions.

Her foundation for success is professionalism, discretion, flexibility, availability paired with local knowledge and exceptional relationships. Each assignment is handled by Caroline personally to ensure that all needs are catered to.
