The combination of public relations and political issues is what characterises my CV. Following my degree in history and politics, I started my professional career in politics-related fields; firstly, as a research staff member at the Austrian Association for Political Consulting and Development (ÖGPP). The following years I worked as a parliamentary assistant at the Austrian Parliament and, simultaneously, as the assistant to the Social Democratic Party (SPÖ) Party Secretary, Mag. Andrea Kuntzl. This was followed by a six-year stint at Ecker & Partner, three years of which were as the Head of the Municipal Affairs and Institutions Unit. In 2009, I joined communication matters. I have been running the agency together with Christian Kollmann as a partner since 2012.
