Yvonne Bauer creates a new organisational structure for the group management of the Bauer Media Group, which takes account of the global orientation of the media house.
Bauer Media noted it has significantly expanded its international activities and today generates two-thirds of its sales outside of Germany.
Publisher Yvonne Bauer assumes the responsibility of Andreas Schoo, who was appointed to the group management in 2007 and leaves Bauer Media Group at the end of September 2017. Schoo was responsible for the areas of print, digital as well as temporarily radio in several countries. He was also interim chief executive in Australia after the departure of David Goodchild until the appointment of Nick Chan as CEO.
Yvonne Bauer said: “Andreas Schoo has played a major role in the successful development of the Bauer Media Group. I thank him for many years of successful work in top management positions. In particular, he helped to shape the expansion of our print business in Germany and did a great deal of work for the digital business of Bauer XCEL Media. He has substantially advanced the international business in the Western core markets. On behalf of my family and the Group Management, I would also like to wish Andreas Schoo all the best for his professional and private future.”
