Russell Bedford International’s Geneva, Switzerland member firm, Russell Bedford Fiduciaire Genève SA, was an official sponsor of this year’s Gonet Genève Open held in Geneva, Switzerland on 20 – 27 May 2023.
The Gonet Genève Open returned to the Swiss city in 2015, for the first time since 1991, held at the Tennis Club de Genève at the Parc des Eaux-Vives, the oldest and largest tennis club in Switzerland.
