As of May 15, Carla Hagemann and Paul Zimmer will lead the Corporate Communications team in a top-sharing model. They succeed Christoph Jumpelt and Vera Tellmann.
Paul Zimmer (Bonn), previously Head of Internal Communications and Managing Editor in the DW Corporate Newsroom, will continue being responsible for internal communications while also taking on responsibility for the corporate social media channels. The former journalist joined DW in 2017. Carla Hagemann (Berlin) will take on responsibility for external communications, which includes the role of Corporate Spokesperson, the contact person for press inquiries from Germany and abroad.
