Board of the association Campax
Andreas Freimüller, founding member and president of the association Campax
Andreas Freimüller has worked in campaigning for twenty-five years. Starting off as an activist at Greenpeace, he’s been a consultant for some fifteen years. Infamous for launching his very own campaigns, he was given the nickname Mammoth Hunter when he successfully challenged one of Economiesuisse’s campaigns and made them surrender under public pressure. To give more room to this passion of his, he co-founded Campax.
Noemi Gruetter, activist, campaigner, student
Noemi studies international relations in Geneva and is passionately committed to migration, women's and human rights and youth issues. In 2016 she became UN Youth Delegate of Switzerland. She gained her first campaign experience with migration and women's rights projects and with Save the Children Switzerland. She will bring her youthful and feminist view to the work of Campax.
Benjamin Zumbühl, activist, mechanic, trade unionist and cyclist
Benjamin is passionately involved as an online and offline activist in campaigns on social and ecological issues. On a bicycle tour halfway around the world, he realized that human rights, democracy, equal opportunities and an intact environment are very precious and fragile goods that must be defended again and again.
Eva Suss, campaigner, Organizing Director Campact e.V.
Eva's first political act was to send a letter to Jacques Chirac at the age of 12, asking him to stop the nuclear tests in the South Pacific.
Since then, she has been involved in student representation, took to the streets for peace and equal educational opportunities, and organized a festival against the right.
As Organizing Director of Campact e.V. Germany, she brings her many years of experience in campaign work to Campax.

Balthasar Glättli, member of the National Council for the Green Party, campaign office owner
Balthasar is member of the National Council for the Green Party and owner of politbüro kampagnen und webdesign.

Sven Fäh, fundraiser and founding member
Sven Fäh, soon to be known as Glücksfäh, is a notorious fundraiser. Bringing people together, igniting enthusiasm for good ideas, and raising funds for meaningful projects is his passion. From charitable rubber duck races for those affected by cancer, to capital campaigns for unemployed people—anything goes, no matter what the cause.
Urs Arnold, campaigner and employee of the first hour
Urs enthusiastically follows the latest developments of the (digital) world. Ever since university, he’s had an avid interest in history and the subjects of social change, the public, and democracy. On the side he’s been organizing concerts and parties because his greatest passion is music, second only to Campax.
