Particularly during the coronavirus pandemic, when the demand for laptops increased many times over, Aliz Tepfenhart made the impossible possible and Cyberport was able to meet the soaring demand.


"Burda is an entrepreneurial company where I have always had the freedom to develop and shape our business. I would like to thank the Executive Board and the Board of Directors for the trust they have placed in me, not only in good times but also in challenging times. I would also like to thank all the employees in our trading companies for their extraordinary commitment and passion for the common cause. After nine years, it is now time for me to move on to new challenges.”
