The (swiss) weekly BILANZ recently published an interview with me under the fancy header “Wie bitte, Herr Lorange?” (beg your pardon, Mr. Lorange?).
They asked me wether I think Mr. Hogan and Mr. Voser were softies. My answer was no. I consider their decision as understandable. Once you’ve reached a certain age, a certain position you might want to have more time for you family or for new tasks.
I therefore say: If you want to make it to the top, you must follow the rules of the game. But this does not mean that the game should dictate your life.
