Zug, Switzerland - August 30, 2022


impactvise AG, the data analytics platform providing legal-sector-specific environmental, social, and environmental (“ESG”) data, sustainability training, and strategic advisory services to law firms and in-house legal departments, today announced the appointment of Joerg Ruetschi to its Strategic Advisory Board. Mr. Ruetschi, who served as Member of the Board since impactvise’s launch, will be transitioning from his role as Lead Incubator to join PwC veteran and founding Strategic Advisory Board member Stephen O’Hearn to build out a team that represents decades of experience in digital transformation, data analytics, and operational excellence.


impactvise co-founders Yannick Hausmann and Adrian Peyer said, “With Joerg’s input, impactvise has been able to grow and refine its data analytics process, establish a first-of-its-kind Sustainability Report Card for legal firms, and expand its proprietary assessment tools to evaluate more than 1000 major law firms worldwide. We have benefited immensely from Joerg’s entrepreneurial spirit and passion for value creation, and his background in the financial industry has lent a unique perspective to impactvise’s pioneering efforts to establish the gold standard for legal services - the next rung in the professional services value chain. We are delighted that as impactvise enters its next phase of organic and in-organic growth, Joerg will continue to guide us via the strategic advisory board, where his experience in applying transformative strategy and new technologies will position our team for success.”


“In the rapidly evolving field of ESG-centric analytics, impactvise stands out as a first mover in tracking the sustainability performance and ESG efforts of law firms, and in using artificial intelligence (AI) to help actors within the space benchmark their progress,” said Mr. Ruetschi. “I’ve relished being on the ground-floor of this exciting venture and in helping the impactvise team build a product that speaks to the direction of travel for the legal industry, and I look forward to continuing to work with the team as it enters this exciting next stage.”


Mr. Ruetschi is founder and CEO of Evolve Enterprise Solutions (EES), an independent platform for entrepreneurial and special situations at the intersection of finance, technology, and operational change, where he oversees the incubations and growth trajectories of companies specialising in AI. In addition to his role at impactvise, he currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer of Cosaic, the US software firm focused on data visualisation and interoperability solutions for financial institutions. Previous stints include leading several restructuring/transformation mandates with financial institutions Booz & Company (now Strategy& as part of the PwC network) and Goldman Sachs. Mr. Ruestschi holds a PhD in Finance and the Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP), Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Financial Risk Manager (FRM) designations.
