Since 1 August, Dorothee Stommel, head of digital communications, who was senior digital PR manager before, has been responsible for the communications of DLD, BurdaPrincipal Investments, the digital holdings as well as umbrella brand issues and CSR together with her team.
Berthold Heidbüchel has taken on the role of head of brand communications, managing the communications team for BurdaStyle, BurdaHome and BurdaLife, BurdaInternational, including Immediate Media (UK), BurdaStudios and the digital holdings.

“Burda is a growing company, which conducts many different successful businesses in the print and digital areas. Our reorganization meets the growing demands on communications. Berthold Heidbüchel and Dorothee Stommel are two excellent communicators joining the managing team from among our own ranks.”
