Berlin/Cologne, 04. June, 2018.
sporttotal.tv gmbh, a subsidiary of SPORTTOTAL AG (formerly _wige MEDIA AG), is looking forward to a twofold increase in the management team as of June 1, 2018: with Caroline Päffgen, 29, a sports business expert will be coming directly from the cooperation partner WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in Dusseldorf, for the first time. Päffgen takes over the newly created position Head of Product & Business Development at the Cologne-based streaming provider. She studied at WHU, Queen’s School of Business (Kingston, Canada) and Monash University (Melbourne, Australia). After completing her studies, she worked for the consulting firm INVERTO GmbH for four years and is currently doing her doctorate at WHU’s Center for Sports and Management.
Caroline Päffgen: „sporttotal.tv is a unique project in the German sports industry. I am very much looking forward to designing the exciting products of sporttotal.tv with a strong team and translating them into a sustainable business model. The unique content – directly from the sports fields of the world – opens up unprecedented marketing opportunities.“
The Berlin-based sporttotal.tv subsidiary also reports an important addition: Martin Czuchra, 33, is strengthening the Digital Lab, where sporttotal.tv develops all digital products, as Head of Web Engineering. Czuchra, who was self-employed for 4 years, worked for Viacom and co-founder of mindpost GmbH. Prior to his self-employment, he worked for SAP Labs in Silicon Valley.
In the future, he will be responsible for the various websites of sporttotal.tv and will report directly to Senior Vice President Kasar Masood, 46, who joined sporttotal.tv in January 2018 from Viacom International Media Networks.
Martin Czuchra: „I am very pleased to be at sporttotal.tv and looking forward to the challenge and further strengthening the existing team. I believe the streaming of live sports is the future and sporttotal.tv wants to be one of the leading companies in the space.“
