After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business communication & public relations and a federal diploma in marketing, Yves Vulcan worked for 8 years as communication manager, then director of the cantonal office in charge of promoting and defending local fruit and vegetables in the canton of Vaud. Strengthened by this experience and enriched by new skills, Yves Vulcan became a confirmed specialist in corporate communication.

In 2003, he took over Darwel Communication, an agency specialising in public relations, media relations, strategic consulting and event organisation for the watch industry and in operation since 1969. Thanks to his network of watch brands and his knowledge of media, Yves was able, for 20 years, to successfully support nearly 50 brands in the development of their PR strategies and their implementation, both nationally and internationally. Darwel is also the owner of www.swisstime.ch, the Swiss watch industry’s reference platform for the media. With the collapse of Baselworld, a major client of the agency, and the impact of Covid on business, he decided to dissolve and liquidate his company in the summer of 2022.

In 2004, Yves earned a Communication Director Diploma (SAWI/SPRI), followed in 2005 by the Federal Diploma in Business Communication Consulting, Head of Advertising. This expertise makes Yves Vulcan a creative and strategic professional, armed with all it takes to convey your communication messages and develop your ecosystem effectively.
