Portrait Stephanie Baumann

Stephanie Baumann

The German media and PR landscape is well familiar to her as a communication scientist. A Bavarian with a sunny disposition, one who keeps her calm even when stress threatens to take over everything. She loves to move and indeed often thinks in terms of the moving image. Relishes challenges and is known to lunge into extreme situations or even leap out of aircraft at 3,000 m. Adores the contrast between city life and country life. A child of the Bavarian forest, she prides herself on that ꞌrolling Rꞌ characteristic of speech in her part of Bavaria.

Portrait Miri Köbner

Miri Köbner

A graduate in philosophy and the German language and literature , she is in love with language games and thought games. She enjoys viewing the world through a whole variety of pairs of glasses – and was like this long before the term ꞌtarget-group-appropriateꞌ became part of her world. Understands the most complex subject-matter but cannot understand indifference in the face of intolerance. An optimist, inexhaustibly curious about people, topics and discussions. Fastidious in her appreciation of all manner of fine things – yet totally uncomplicated in her day-to-day dealings with people.

Portrait Mattias Naumann

Mattias Naumann

His passion for writing enabled him to get better school grades in his German-language class than his fellow pupils who had, actually read the material being discussed. Initially he focused on his personal hobby-horse subjects, as a graduate in political science and history, an editor of automotive articles for many years, as well as an enthusiastic spectator of sports, especially football. Today he is fully appreciative of the fascination, all of their own, that topics have with which he had never previously been involved.

Making the switchover from journalism and into the agency, she brought her passion for language with her. In her mind she is a graduate in political science and communication science, in her heart a creative designer. She envelops complex topics in simple words; her clear words are woven together to shape convincing arguments. Mostly to be found outdoors savouring the joys of nature, preferably in company. Her most cherished gift is having the world explained to her through the eyes of her children.

Portrait Lucy Ströher

She’s a natural talent, making herself useful and warming peopleꞌs hearts. Understands a thing or two about words and numbers. Cuts a dashing figure not only as a tennis player, but also keeps the group together as a trainer for physical exercise. Never seen without a book readily to hand, she has a permanent craving for chocolate.

Reist aber auch gerne in der weiten Welt herum.

Portrait Petra Weidmann

Petra Weidmann

A diploma engineer, she came to the agency via architecture. An all-rounder for PR and marketing, thanks to a whole lot of experience. Has a capacity to be enthusiastic about everyone and everything. Her professional hobby-horse is to take topics, understand them and then sell them. She is a systemic coach, a champion of structures and plans of all kinds, a project manager with a perennial soft spot – her fascination with the details, also in her photography, among other areas that interest her. Only likes to be drawn out of her naturally calm state by her children. A fan of the Baltic Sea and a voracious reader.

An eager hobby-cyclist undaunted by any wind or weather.

Portrait Sönke Wiese

Sönke Wiese

Aufgewachsen in Buxtehude (ja, das gibt es wirklich), ein echtes Nordlicht also. Fühlt sich aber in den bayerischen Bergen genauso wohl wie im brummenden Berlin. Bricht gerne, beruflich wie privat, zu neuen Ufern auf. Als Journalist über 15 Jahre bei reichweitenstarken Print-, Online- und TV-Medien, schließlich Leiter der Kommunikation einer weltweit führenden Managementberatung. Leidenschaftlicher Texter, der immer auch in Bildern denkt. Stärken: vernetztes Denken und zielgruppengerechte Ansprache. Wenn er sich mal nicht um Content kümmert, zieht es ihn in die Welt: am liebsten zum Tauchen nach Südostasien oder auf Foto-Safaris nach Afrika.

Portrait Claudia Wild

Claudia Wild

Studierte Kommunikationswissenschaftlerin und waschechte Münchnerin. Bringt Ordnung in jedes Chaos und behält mit ihrer bayerischen „Griabigkeit“ stets den Überblick. Übt sich auch in stürmischen Zeiten in Ruhe, Gelassenheit und an konstruktiven Problemlösungen. Privat verschlägt es sie am liebsten in fremde Länder. Je wärmer, desto besser. Ist stets bemüht, ihre Seriensucht in den Griff zu bekommen.

Specialists

Whether you think of Leibniz or Humboldt, the ꞌuniversal man or woman of learningꞌ is a species that died out long ago. Not because people are becoming ꞌdumberꞌ - to put it bluntly - but because the sheer volume of knowledge is growing all the time. To be able to advise you effectively, what is needed is a broad base of knowledge. To be able to implement things well, the knowledge needs to reach more deeply into specialised disciplines.
