Stephan Dahm Managing director

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.

Dr. Cerstin Stadeler

Dr. Cerstin Stadeler Senior management

Co-founder of the agency; she puts her heart and mind into managing our internal processes. Our clients highly appreciate her as their contact person. Despite being a working mother of two sons, she is in top form every day – where she takes the energy from remains her secret.

With Apple, Windows, or Linux: As a former computer scientist with a lot of enthusiam for clear structures and design, Christian has managed the graphic department at our agency since 2000, and takes care of our digital infrastructure.

In his free time, he takes long treks through deep valleys and explores high mountains, enjoys game nights with friends and tends to forget the real world between the pages of his innumerable books.

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.
