Over a decade ago, Marc was hired by Florida-based Lazzara Yachts, Inc. to introduce new perspectives and production methods to their yacht design.  Within a few years, Marc became their lead designer and created a new line of yachts for the company, as well as numerous groundbreaking designs. 
A few years ago, he accepted an opportunity to work in his home country in the luxury interior design industry, and he decided to start his own design and consulting firm.
After accepting an opportunity to work in the luxury interior design industry in Zürich for a few years, he decided to start his own design and consulting firm, aldesso AG, in order to apply his diverse and transferable skills in as broad a range of projects as possible.
