Does anyone have any information on Lausanne, Montreux or Geneva?
As may other already pointed out, with your planned budget you can live pretty much anywhere in Switzerland.
Geneva obviously has the advantage of its own airport but it can also be very boring on Sundays when everyone seems to disappear from the city. Otherwise it has a lot to offer in terms of cultural activities and the nature around (though mostly in France).
In Lausanne you can get something like this https://en.comparis.ch/immobilien/ma.../show/18576201 for under CHF 4500/month just a 100m from the lake and still be within a 45-minute train ride of Geneva airport. Vevey and Montreux add another 20-30 minutes further away but should have a decent choice of properties to select from in the 5K range.
On another note, you mention your own HKG-based company being the employer - what kind of residence permit do you expect to get (or already have in your hands)?
