Bloomberg’s German bureau chief joining PR firm
Bloomberg’s German bureau chief, Daniel Schäfer, has joined strategic communications firm Finsbury Glover Hering as a partner in the capital markets team, reports Maja Pawinska Sims of Provoke.
Sims reports, “Schäfer has worked as a journalist and media manager in Frankfurt and London for more than two decades. At Bloomberg News he was responsible for the media group’s three German sites. Previously, he had worked as finance editor and Frankfurt bureau chief at German daily Handelsblatt and as correspondent for Germany and banking reporter for the British Financial Times in Frankfurt and London. He started his career as a banking and business reporter at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) newspaper.
“Global CEO Alexander Geiser said Schäfer would strengthen the firm’s capital market transactions, financial communications and investor relations capabilities. Schäfer will join the consultancy’s 16 other partners on the leadership team of Finsbury Glover Hering Europe in August.
“‘In the past 20 years, we have hardly ever advised on a M&A transaction that Daniel or his team have not reported on,’ said Geiser. ‘Our clients value seamless and nuanced advice on complex, international capital market issues, hence Daniel will be a great asset to them. It’s a great pleasure for our team and me personally to welcome such an internationally experienced journalist to our ranks.'”
