Jens Petershagen takes over responsibility for Corporate Communication at Festo

(PresseBox) (Esslingen, )
Jens Petershagen (49) has assumed management of the Corporate Communication division at Festo AG as of 1 May 2016. He reports directly to the company’s Chairman of the Management Board, Dr Claus Jessen. Jens Petershagen follows Dr Heinrich Frontzek (59) who continues to support the company in an advisory capacity.

Jens Petershagen benefits from around 25 years of experience in corporate communications. During this period he gained experience with renowned agencies such as Springer & Jacoby and BBDO and also worked in various functions for companies such as Daimler, Deutsche Telekom and RWE. The 49 year-old owns a management consultancy for strategic communication headquartered in Cologne, Germany since 2008.

During a period of activity for Festo spanning 14 years, Dr Heinrich Frontzek developed the company’s corporate communication and essentially shaped Festo’s external image and brand. In addition to consistent positioning of the Festo brand with regard to technology, innovation, training and expertise, trade fair presentations with the Bionic Learning Network and Future Concepts are some of the industrial engineer’s specific successes, as seen regularly at the Hannover Messe trade fair. Dr Frontzek leaves Festo AG on his own request to become an independent consultant for innovation communication, and in this role will continue to be active for Festo.

“We express our sincere gratitude to Dr Frontzek for his successful commitment to Festo over many years and wish him every success for his professional future. We are also very pleased to have won a proven expert for the strategic communications of Festo in the person of Jens Petershagen, and look forward to his impulses for the further development of Festo communication activities. We wish him much success in his new tasks,” summarised Dr Claus Jessen, Chairman of the Management Board.
