Press: Philipp Künstle is new Managing Director of Erich Pommer Institut
Philipp Künstle works at the Erich Pommer Institut since 2017. Lastly, he was Head of the study programmes. He succeeds Nadja Radojevic, who left EPI in March on her own request after 14 years as CEO. She is now CEO of the ifs in Cologne.
Phlipp Künstle is looking forward to the new challenge: “Next to the development of the dual study programmes, I see a lot of growth potential in the internationalisation and digitalisation of our offers, even beyond the motion picture industry. The EPI reacted to the current crisis with advanced training offers at short notice and will accompany media professionals with its proven practical approach through these times to offer them an important benefit for the re-start.”
The president of the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF Prof. Dr. Susanne Stürmer: ”Philipp Künstle developed EPI’s dual study programmes successfully, as well as established the first certificate courses. Next to his very good work as regards content, his leadership skills, high acceptance, and new impulses stood out quickly. I am convinced that he will steer the EPI well through the current situation and provide a basis for further development. I want to thank Nadja Radojevic for her successful establishment of the EPI as one of the foremost providers of advanced training in the German and European media industry.” .
Philipp Künstle studied Popular Music and Media (B.A.) and Music and Creative Industries (M.A.). He started his career in Los Angeles as Marketing Manager for the National Association of Record Industry Professionals (NARIP) with further engagements as Music Supervisor for feature films until 2016 and Project Manager for Web and IT projects.
