Who is behind Warner Communications?

Britta Warner set up Warner Communications in September 2014 after having worked for more than 10 years in the Public Affairs sector and in international sports, including at four Olympic Games. The agency is based in the Lake Geneva area of Switzerland, home to many international sports organisations.

Britta’s capacity to deliver projects with tight deadlines for senior executives with a high sense of reliability, diplomacy and discretion, has produced many remarkable, tangible results during her work with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and in the EU environment in Brussels. Whilst her first language is German, she has always worked in English and in French.

According to a former superior, Britta is “always calm under fire” - references from senior executives are available on request.

Britta has master’s degrees in sport sciences and sports organisation management and is also the author of two sport-historical publications. As a sport enthusiast, she spends a lot of her free time doing triathlons, long-distance runs, skiing and playing many sports with her children.
