Yvan Botteron was born in 1973 in western Switzerland. He studied electrical engineering both at home and in Calgary between 1995 and 1997, where he received his master’s degree. Recipient of the Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship, he was hosted by the RC Calgary West. He spent 3 years in Canada before returning to his home country. He then trained as an airline pilot with Swissair (which went bankrupt shortly after the 9/11 events). He now flies as an airline captain for Swiss International on the Canadian-built Airbus 220 (aka Bombardier CSeries). Yvan has been a Rotarian since 2004 and is now president-elect of the RC of La Chaux-de-Fonds, in Western Switzerland where he lives with his life partner Anne.
