Hi, my name is Evangelos Papathanassiou and I live in Berlin, Germany.
With more than two decades of experience in digital, I work as a management and strategy consultant and professional speaker.
You will always find three things in my work: I embrace change, have the guts to say things the way they are and consider technology rather our friend than a potential threat. My services include:
- Strategy & Management Consulting
- Innovation Development
- Digital Sports & Sponsoring
As a speaker, I always have a set of current talks around media, innovation and marketing, but I am also more than happy to customize a specific talk for your event. In recent years I have specialized in media & publishing, sports and consumer goods, but I remain always open to new challenges.
If you want to keep up with what I am reading, I am frequently publishing commented links on my “microblog”.
Clients I worked for include, among others:
Anschutz Entertainment Group/AEG, Adidas, Arvato, Bertelsmann, BMW, Bosch, Camel, Chrysler, Condé Nast, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Post/DHL, Deutsche Sporthilfe, Deutsche Telekom AG, E.ON, ebay, FC Bayern München, Funke Digital, HypoVereinsbank/Unicredit, Microsoft, ProSiebenSat1 Media AG, Red Bull Media House, Reemstma, RTL, Skoda, Sony, Sport1, Swatch, UEFA, Volkswagen, Wella, Winston, Yellostrom, Zalando, Zwilling … and many others.
- Magister Artium in Science of Communication, Psychology and Marketing
- U5 GmbH (later BBDO Interone): consultant for several international BMW accounts, among others BMW Middle East and BMW Motorcycles (global).
- I-D Media AG: New Business Director, Head of Web Business (cycosmos.com, wer-weiss-was.de), VP Strategy Consulting
- Deutsche Telekom/T-Com: Head of Innovation Strategy, Senior Exec VP
- Self Employed since 2007: Technology is our friend
