This trained banker got involved with communications at an early stage: first as unit head of an advertising company and even more intensely since 1998 when he founded Dahm & Freunde.

What can we do for you?

Good question. We have no idea. Of course we are proud of what we have done in the past. But we are much more interested in the things that we have not yet done. Ideas no one else has ever thought of. Projects that bring change to the world. Which attract attention and are memorable. Communication which works. Because that's what we are best at.
