What became of Wenger CEO
« on: September 28, 2014, 11:22:27 AM »
Does anyone know what became of Peter Hug Wenger CEO.  I never met the guy but he always came across as a very friendly sincere bloke. I recall he did a video tribute for MT'o anniversary some time ago.

It would be great to know how he is, maybe Grant could interview him. I'd love to know more about the Wenger brand.

I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

As far as I can tell he's a CEO/Partner in a company in Delemont that deals with "Luxury Goods & Jewelry", watches and so. And as a few of the staff there came from Wenger Watches it's possibly a daughter company something similar.

Thanks Nikola

I'm glad to hear that - it sounds as if it's a subsidiary to Victorinox?
Learn something new every day.

Like Beery - I'm hungry to learn more about Wenger. I wonder if Vic plans to open a museum in ibach as a tribute. I really would love to see all the prototypes that never made it into production. Given how radical some of Wengers designs were I bet there were many many weird and wonderful concepts created.

Without sounding pathetic I still mourn for Wenger, I really wish I had got involved with MT'o from the beginning and discovered Wenger as we now  know it. I would have quite possibly made the journey over to see them.

Considering how poor the Victorinox Museum in Brunnen is, I have to say I seriously doubt that.
Also when I was at Wenger, they had a small cabinet where they showed some out of production SAK but nothing really exciting or special (apart from that white beauty below, which of course is not really a Wenger product), so I don't even know if there are prototypes and stuff around.
That said I would definitively visit a Wenger Tribute Museum :tu:

Think there were some earlier mentions on here that Victorinox had bought a major SAK collection, and that one of its execs was regularly hitting knife shows in Switzerland looking for older models. So Victorinox may be planning a museum sometime down the road.

If I remember correctly a few years ago a woman joined here, said she worked for Vic and tried to buy an old Bear Jaws tool from Bob/J-sews. I think she was collecting tools that preceded the SwissTool for the Vic museum.
