I have been in the Communications business for more than 20 years.
After having studied Economic Sociology, I started my career as the press officer for the Lower Austrian financial administrative district and chair of the NÖGUS, the Lower Austrian Health and Social Fund.Then I moved on to the Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs, where I worked for three years at the office of the minister.
Afterwards, I led the state secretary’s office in the Ministry of Infrastructure until October 2004. As a Public Relations specialist, I went on to become a manager of a Motorola subsidiary. In 2008 I changed to the agency Rosam Change Communications, where I worked as a manager until the end of 2011. At this time, I started my own business. In the past I also worked as Head of Group Communications for HYPO NOE Gruppe Bank AG and NOVOMATIC Group of Companies. Apart from Economic Sociology, I also finished a training course on public relations and received a university degree in advertising and sales.
In addition, I am also a legally certified expert on Public Relations (http://wien.gerichts-sv.at) and member of the Austrian Advertising Standards Authority. I lecture at Universities of Applied Sciences and enjoy passing my PR knowledge onto my students. In 2014 I published my first specialised book “Special topics in Public Relations”, one year later “Special topics in Public Relations II” and at least “Special topics in Public Relations III” followed.
From time to time I also write articles in specialised media referring to Public Relations, Media and Politics.
