Asta-i lunea grupurilor media, a treia chestie tare pe ziua de azi. Burda România anunţă că Michael Schroeder pleacă, după şase ani, din poziţia de general manager. Locul lui e luat de Sandi Apostoloiu, Vice General Manager din 2008.
Comunicatul de presă, pentru anglofoni:
The General Management of Burda Romania will change. After 6 years in office, Michael Schroeder will leave Burda by the end of July. The new General Manager will be Sandi Apostoloiu.
“I am happy that Burda has become in the last years one of the leading magazine publishers in this country”, said Michael Schroeder. Between 2003, when he took over the company and 2008, Burda has multiplied turn over by 4 and advertising revenues by 7. With a portfolio of 20 national and international magazines, Burda had, in 2008, the largest offer of magazine titles on the market. One of the major challenge during these years was the acquisition and integration of Casa Lux company.
Burda Romania’s new General Manager, Sandi Apostoloiu, has behind him a successful track record within Burda. As a result of his excellent work, he became Vice General Manager in 2008. “It was an honor for me to work with Sandi and the whole team over the last years. I have no doubt that Sandi has all the necessary skills to succeed the difficult challenges of the future”, Michael Schroeder said.
Michael Schroeder’s future ambitions are not known yet: “I will take a little time out to think about different options. It may also be a possibility to stay in Romania”.
