He takes over the management together with Markus Zuber, who has been Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and member of the management board at Salzbrenner media since January 1st, 2021. With a sharpened business profile and a powerful digital toolkit, the new management duo aims to further expand Salzbrenner media’s market position. The previous managing directors, Thomas Salzbrenner and Wolfgang Salzbrenner, will ensure a smooth change of leadership before focusing on expanding Stage Tec’s core business in the future. Managing Director Manfred Nowak left the company at the end of March.

Markus Zuber

Over the course of almost 60 years, Salzbrenner media has established itself as a general contractor for challenging projects in the areas of theatre & opera, parliament buildings as well as complex maritime projects with innovative and tailor-made media technology solutions. With Andreas Pater and Markus Zuber, a new dynamic team is now taking over the management and future orientation of the product manufacturer and systems integrator. Pater previously helped to build up the innovation department at RIEDEL Communications in the Rental division and was, among other things, managing director at Gahrens + Battermann GmbH for around 10 years. In addition to optimizing Salzbrenner media’s business processes, his focus will be on securing and enhancing the company’s innovative strength. Markus Zuber, who in the past worked for companies such as Adidas and Landis+Gyr, was responsible for Salzbrenner media’s project business as commercial director until his appointment to the management board. With his sharp eye for profitable business potential, the industrial manager and business economist will help fuel the company’s sustainable growth.

“We would like to thank Thomas and Wolfgang Salzbrenner for this great opportunity and the trust they have placed in us,” said Markus Zuber. “For business success, we rely on the unique know-how of our entire team. Building on this, we will significantly expand our digital service portfolio with high-performance products and solutions,” Zuber continues.

“Salzbrenner’s DNA has always been based on technical innovation and engineering in product development as well as the highest quality standards in project planning and execution,” said Wolfgang Salzbrenner. “Andreas Pater and Markus Zuber stand for all of this and also have a strong digital and commercial mindset. We are convinced that with them both we have found the ideal successors for the future success of the company.”
