Blonde and blue-eyed? Whilst that’s something he can’t claim to be, he’s a real Hamburg businessman in many ways. And can you be a managing partner without being a firm believer in the city’s commercial tradition, which states that a handshake is worth more than a contract? Or see challenges from a sporting perspective without playing golf? Or think outside the box without being able to judge the wind in your sails? Clambering through booking numbers, hiking through document folders, diving in the shallows of the software system structure – someone has to keep hold of the organisational thread in any company. For us, it’s Bettina! As an office manager with decades of experience in the IT, automotive and banking sectors, the native of Stuttgart puts the sporting ambition she demonstrates in her free time to good use for our entire team as the right-hand woman of the management board! Always cool and calm: brought up in an extended family, Rebecca can easily deal with challenging situations. Therefore she can bake our projects as a Key Account Manager just as perfectly as the tasty biscuits she creates at home.  She found her way to us after exciting stations: a training as Publishing Manager, Project Management for media services in the Cruise Business, a bachelor’s degree in media publishing and finally working as a consultant in a Hamburg advertising agency. From Hamburg and with Kosovan roots, Muhamet is a real asset to Promotion Pets. Known lovingly as Muhi, he is our sales ace and has a well-honed instinct for clients and what we can do for them. A wholesaler and exporter, he tackles any task with passion and is soon able to turn inquiries into orders. In his spare time, he enjoys playing football and is just as much of a benefit to his team on the field. Alina is firing on all cylinders. A dyed-in-the-wool Berliner, she has worked in Switzerland and is now studying International Management and Foreign Trade on a dual education basis. At the same time, she is also enthusiastically supporting our internal distribution and field sales. During the three years of her course, she will become acquainted with all the departments in our company. And as if that wasn’t enough, she still has energy left over for her hobby – dancing. Does it help to be born in Cologne while creating cute pets? Even if Lisa grew up in the North and finished her studies in illustration and animation graduating with flying colours later in Hamburg, we still believe to detect a bit of the typical cologne humour in her and her ideas. She gained first professional experience in a Packaging Design agency with an animation department. Lisa is deeply fond of animals like her tomcat Bailey  – and draws true inspiration for developing plush pets. Twice the impact: after studying illustration design and gaining further education as an animation designer, Johanna’s professional career started in a company which develops gaming apps for children. But that was not enough for her! An internship complemented her know-how with graphic and Web design. Perfect for showing all of her skills in the development of our pets – together with her twin Lisa! In her free time, Johanna loves reading fantasy novels accompanied by coffee, chocolate and her cat “Mokka”. “Speedy, speedy” seems to be Anja’s motto. Born in Wittenberg, the hometown of Martin Luther, she finished her apprenticeship in foreign trade at an accelerated tempo – in just 1.5 years! As a secretary and assistant to the Management Board, she set the right pace in two companies. In between all that, Anja swiftly moved to Hamburg for her big love, had a child, then worked in hardware procurement and is now in charge of mega software: plush! Even her spare time is fast paced, like when she gets moving on in-line skates. Together with Jan, Douglas is tasked with developing the company’s personality and potentiality. He worked as Art Director and Creative Director for many years at various international advertising agencies, servicing multinational companies. Now we’re the ones benefiting from his strategic and conceptual experience. Both at work and in his personal life, his passion is to discover the souls of people and things.
