About Us

The Swiss GAYDOUL GROUP is the holding company for the Gaydoul-Schweri family. The GAYDOUL GROUP is rooted in the entrepreneurial activities of my grandfather Karl Schweri, Swiss pioneer of the discounting sector. In the year 2000 he entrusted me with leadership of the family business «Denner». It was my goal to hone in on our core competencies by paring down the structure of a family enterprise that had grown organically up to that point. This initiative increased our revenues threefold, despite a saturated market, to three billion Swiss Franks.

After selling the «Denner» business to the Swiss Migros Group, in 2007 my mother Denise Gaydoul and I founded the GAYDOUL GROUP, an active investment company based on core Swiss values.
