Bauer is continuing the restructuring of its executive board with the appointment of Veit Dengler.
Veit will be responsible for the activities of the Bauer Media Group in the UK, USA, Australia and other countries, and push forward with the development of new business.
Bauer CEO Yvonne Bauer comments: “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 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 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 (age 53) since 2013, Witold Wozniak (age 49) since 2015 and Harald Jessen (age 46) since 2017, and now from April 2018 Veit Dengler.
