European media executive Veit Dengler (pictured) has been appointed to the board of Bauer Media and will be responsible for Australia in addition to other markets.
Dengler will oversee the activities of the Bauer Media Group in the UK, the USA, Australia and other unnamed countries. Furthermore, he will push forward with the development of new business for the group.
Publisher Yvonne Bauer said: “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.”
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.
