BAUER MEDIA GROUP APPOINTS VEIT DENGLER TO THE GROUP’S EXECUTIVE BOARD

Publisher Yvonne Bauer is completing the restructuring process of the Executive Board of the Bauer Media Group by taking on Veit Dengler. Yvonne Bauer: “I look forward to working with Veit Dengler. He is a multifaceted and internationally experienced top manager who can optimally complement the Executive Board with his experience and create new opportunities in our markets. The dynamism with which he has executed projects previously in his career is a genuine plus for our company, particularly in light of the development of new business. Now we are perfectly positioned in the Executive Board to take on challenges in coming years, which I look forward to facing. I’m convinced that, with the new management team, we will be able to demonstrate even better that we are a broad and internationally active player.”

Veit Dengler has held various top positions throughout his international career, including at McKinsey and Dell. Most recently, as CEO of the Switzerland-based NZZ Media Group, he was responsible for the company’s strategic realignment.

With the appointment of Veit Dengler, publisher Yvonne Bauer is continuing with the restructuring of the Executive Board, which began in September 2017, and is thus particularly supporting the global alignment of the media company. The Bauer Media Group has significantly expanded its international activities under Yvonne Bauer and today earns two-thirds of the company’s turnover abroad.

In addition to Yvonne Bauer, the Group’s Executive Board has consisted of Jörg Hausendorf since 2013, Witold Wozniak since 2015 and Harald Jessen since 2017, and now from April 2018 Veit Dengler.
