In these roles, I managed the external and internal, corporate and commercial communication as well as the public relations and public affairs functions of the globally leading satellite operator. Before, I served in senior communication and media relations roles at Syngenta (Basel, Switzerland), Bertelsmann (Gütersloh, Germany) and RTL (Luxembourg), and before that as reporter, editor and correspondent at the renowned German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) and the international news agency Reuters in Frankfurt, Bonn and London. Since February this year, I am acting as Chair of the Asteroid Foundation.
