Consultants

What you get from us is good advice – from personalities who command a wide range of knowledge, not only in the subject area of communication. You get it from people who think like engineers, act like heads of controlling, and understand their role as being that of relationship managers.

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.

Fastidious in her appreciation of all manner of fine things – yet totally uncomplicated in her day-to-day dealings with people.

After work experience in journalism and in marketing, she now deploys her knowledge in PR and social media. What she loves about Munich is its blend of big-city bustle and Bavarian cosiness.

Portrait Alexander Stiehle

Alexander Stiehle

Studied German language and literature with a big heart for strategies and content. During his studies, Alexander worked as a journalist, which took him to the most isolated places.

Subsequently, he built up the communications department of an engineering subsidiary of AUDI AG. Since then, he has been thrilled by the challenge of preparing complex content in a way that is appropriate for the target group, in line with the company's strategic orientation and with a great deal of empathy. In his free time, Alexander can be found in the mountains or in exotic places in a jeep with a roof tent.

Portrait Lara

Lara

Ein Wauzi kommt selten allein. Unser Frauenheld Lucky bekommt endlich weibliche Verstärkung, hat es allerdings nicht ganz so leicht mit ihr. Unserer Lara kann Man(n) eben nichts vormachen. Sie kommuniziert direkt und deutlich, ganz frei Schnauze eben. Zur Teamplayerin wird sie nur mit der nötigen Bestechung durch allergenfreundliche Leckerlis. So klappt es auch mit der Geduld von nine to five.
