At the beginning of the year, the NZZ Media Group realigned its organizational structure. In the course of this, on the one hand the corporate units were realigned with a focus on the user and advertising markets in the area of marketing and sales, and on the other hand product development and customer experience, business development and portfolio management, as well as additional business in the area of products were combined.

The newly created position of Chief Revenue Officer will be filled by Johannes Boege as of September 1. In this role, he will be responsible for managing all marketing and sales topics of the core business of the NZZ Media Group across the board and will closely network them. "I am convinced that Johannes Boege, with his proven expertise and experience in publishing and digitization, will successfully develop the Marketing and Sales division and provide our company with significant support in the digital transformation. I am very much looking forward to working with him," said Felix Graf, CEO of NZZ Mediengrupppe, in a statement.

Johannes Boege is responsible for product development and management, technology, marketing and business intelligence at Politico Europe and is responsible for product optimization and strategic growth of the company with a focus on the user market. He joined Politico in 2017 from Axel Springer, where he held various leadership positions. At Axel Springer, he served as general manager for the printed daily and Sunday newspapers of the World responsible and for the introduction of the digital subscription model of the World and the acquisition and integration of Germany's leading TV station N24. He also founded for the company the German business magazine Balance. From 2007 to 2009 he was assistant to the CEO of Axel Springer, Mathias Döpfner.

Johannes Boege holds a double degree in international business administration and a master's degree in public policy. He studied at the European School of Business and the Hertie School of Governance in Germany, at the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Reims, at the University of Gothenburg and at the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs in New York.

Monica Dell'Anna, member of the Executive Board and Head of Products, will leave the company at the beginning of April to pursue new challenges. She took over as Head of the new Products division on January 1, with responsibility for Product Development and Customer Experience, Business Development and Portfolio Management, and the Additional Businesses. She also continued to be responsible for the business media for which she had already been responsible since 2016: the NZZ conferences including the Swiss Economic Forum, the Zurich Film Festival as well as the business information platform Moneyhouse and the online platform for architecture and design, Architonic. 

Felix Graf: "Monica Dell'Anna has led the Business Media division very successfully over the past three years. She has contributed significantly to the successful implementation of the NZZ Media Group's strategy in this area and thus to its profitability. She has thus laid a very solid foundation for the next steps."

Monica Dell'Anna's successor, whose name can be announced shortly, has many years of experience in the media industry as well as in-depth expertise in the digital sector. Until she starts in August, CEO Felix Graf, CFO Jörg Schnyder and CTO Andreas Bossecker will take over the interim management of the Products Business Unit.
