Mike Seidensticker to become Corporate Spokesman
Christian Reiss to succeed him as a Press Spokesman for the Trade Shows
Mike Seidensticker (56), acting as a Press Spokesman for Reed Exhibitions Deutschland since 2003, will become Director Corporate Communications. With this move Reed Exhibitions wants to further sharpen its profile as a leading international trade show organiser and expand its exposure in the media, politics and associations. Seidensticker will take up his new functions as Director Corporate Communications and Corporate Spokesman on 1 January 2020. In this role he will report to CEO Hans-Joachim Erbel.
Succeeding him as a Press Spokesman for the Reed trade shows in Germany will be Christian Reiss (48). Reiss, who has been with Reed Exhibitions since 2005 acting since then as a Deputy Press Spokesman, had been operatively responsible for the materials trade fairs, including the global No. 1 trade fair ALUMINIUM, and EQUITANA. In future, he will also take over content desk management as “Head of Content”. In his new position he will report to Managing Director Michael Freter.
“Both of them are the ideal choice since they have decisively shaped the media appearance of Reed Exhibitions for years now with their performance and their spirit: Mike, who maintained perfect connections with the exhibition and media business for 30 years, already gives the company a high profile today. Christian has acquired extensive expertise in special-interest communication over 15 years, which he will contribute to this new position,” says Hans-Joachim Erbel.
The position of Deputy Press Spokesperson will be assumed by Cornelia Tautenhahn (38) from 1 January. She began her career with Reed Exhibitions in 2008. In terms of operative business, as before she will look after FIBO and Bar Convent Berlin as a Content Manager.
