UNICEPTA Medienanalyse GmbH, a leading international service provider for media monitoring, media analysis, social media monitoring and strategic communication consulting, has boosted its circle of partners. Hartmut Ostrowski, former CEO and supervisory board member at Bertelsmann AG, and the Munich-based publisher Dr. Dirk Ippen (Münchner Merkur, HNA, tz and others) have acquired a share in the Cologne-based business information services provider. In addition, Ostrowski will become the chairman of a newly founded advisory committee comprised of experienced media professionals which is to give the company important expert and strategic input.
The shares acquired by Ostrowski and Ippen are chiefly those of former UNICEPTA partner Joachim Fuß. The two managing directors Georg Stahl and Oliver Minasso will continue to head UNICEPTA and will remain the key partners at the company.
“We are very happy to have won over two top-class partners for UNICEPTA’s business Hartmut Ostrowski and Dirk Ippen, combined with their profound knowledge of the German and international media industry, create an ideal basis for the further development of UNICEPTA,” managing directors Georg Stahl and Oliver Minasso explain the strategic decision.
