“People here really want to foster change and are driven, which is very refreshing for a large corporate.”

Marcel’s Journey

After completing his studies in Business Administration in Münster and Cologne, Marcel joined Axel Springer’s Trainee Program where he started his first three month stint in the Strategic Investment department. He then rotated to the M&A department to dive deeper into the inner workings of the acquisition process, and thereafter progressed into two daughter companies. At the end of the Trainee Program, Marcel rejoined the team where his journey had started 18 months before - and is now working in his role as Investment Associate.

Honing His Skills On The Job

In his three years at Axel Springer, Marcel has gathered a toolbox of skills and knowledge that has allowed him to analyse markets and companies, evaluate investment opportunities and drive his own projects. Just a couple of years after starting at Axel Springer right out of university, he now provides the Executive Board of Europe’s leading digital publisher with strategic insights and recommendations on how to optimize current portfolios, acquire or sell companies and enter new markets.

"We value entrepreneurship and innovation in our working environment and it’s great to work in this atmosphere."
