Andreas took a rather unusual approach to corporate communications. After graduating in chemistry, he left the stench in the labs behind him and switched to journalism. During his postgraduate studies in journalism in Mainz, he was given the opportunity to join financial magazine Börse Online in Munich in the midst of the stock markets boom in the late 1990s. After five years, he started working for Deutsche Telekom in 2003, initially as a press spokesperson for the South West region of T-Mobile, later to the corporate press office. In the beginning, the focus was clearly on finances, which has expanded continuously over the past years.
