Career

Occupation

I have been working in the automotive industry for nearly my entire life. I apprenticed with Opel and continued working within the industry for more than 25 years. During that phase I got to work with Mitsubishi Motors Corporate Communications. Then I worked for Subaru as Group Head Corporate Communications. I finally switched sides, acquiring the distinguished “Global Press Nachrichten-Agentur und Informationsdienste GmbH” in June of 2015.

Motoring Media Career:

Owner and Managing Director of the „Global Press NachrichtenAgentur und Informationsdienste GmbH“ – the oldest privately owned news agency of Germany, established as early as 1946. We are proud to publish news and stories focusing on multiple topics into the DACH region. Our largest brand is „MotorInformations-Dienst“ (mid) which is widely known and published throughout the German media (print and online) and the automotive industry. As such, we have acquired the opportunity to be part of nearly every exclusive press event relevant to the automotive world in and around Europe. My Reporter Team is represented at all motor shows worldwide and the circulation is 60 million.
