† June 13, 2019
Conny was commotion’s clockwork and ensures that everything runs according to plan. Nothing slipped her rigorous attention to detail.
After a long and serious illness, our managing partner and long-time companion has left us. commotion and the event industry are losing one of their most professional experts and a person who lived her profession with passion and lifeblood for three decades.
Thank you, Conny,
for everything you brought with you and passed on to us.
We will miss you.
Jörg crosses the boundaries of creativity at commotion and as such is in charge of account and project management. With a sure footing, he strolls along the fine line between creativity and feasibility, while juggling with the worlds of imagination, expectation, feasibility and targets, until he holds the perfect concept in his hands. The fact that he does not always take the direct and obvious route lies in the nature of his cross-over character. In the same way as his taste in music is little defined, his ideas are often unusual and unpredictable for the client.
Peter is the man for visuals at commotion – pictures are his life and choreography his passion. Whether fashion, design, architecture, theatre or film – Peter knows their history, developments and trends and can rearrange them to create something that is always new. Inspired by own impressions, he inspires his audience in turn. Peter’s imagination and his ability to convert phantasy and illusions into pictures contributes significantly to commotion clients’ events turning out to be unforgettable.
Svenja impresses with her calm and conscientious way of working. Wherever the wind has taken her until now, whether to the Netherlands for her studies or to the US and Australia for various internships, Svenja has never forgotten her roots.
Had Herbert Grönemeyer not written his hometown anthem already, he would have to do this especially for Svenja : “Bochum, ich komm’ aus Dir.”
(“Bochum, I was born here”)
Chief Innovation Officer (CIO)
Zhebo is the actual boss of the team. In his role as CIO, it is his task to push the team to come up with ever new ideas, creations and conceptions.
No matter whether his people are suffering a mental block, have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed or it is a bleak and rainy day– Zhebo knows how to get them back on track. All it normally takes is for him to give them a disapproving look, from his black beady eyes over his cuddly nose, and even the event manager in the worst of moods cannot help but smile. If this does not work, he simply sends his team for a walk around Baldeney Lake. It is common knowledge that fresh air stimulates the brain cells.
You can rouse Cosmas at night from his sleep and he will tell you the answer to any question, no matter how tricky. That said, waking him at night is normally not necessary: He prefers to work when others are asleep. The theatre man is not only a highly creative person, who works very analytically and meticulously – two souls live, oh woe, inside his bosom - he also has a soft spot and the knowhow for stadium choreographies; whether the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Athens or the Women’s Football World Cup in Germany.
Judith is half Dutch, half German, and a passionate scuba diver. When not under water, she accompanies Conny and Jörg in their work, which she has been doing since 1998. A true all-rounder, she understands the creative individualist as well as the pragmatic strategist. Her infectious enthusiasm for music is not her only way of spreading good vibrations within the team; with her forthcoming manner she tames the predominantly male domains of the engineering partners with her friendly smile and turns even roaring lions into purring pussycats. Her motto: “Laughing is my way of baring my teeth”.
Editor, Conceptual Management
Niels delves into complex topics like no other and works out their gist for the creative department, which, thanks to Niels’ help, can focus completely on its production competences. Despite his Danish roots, Niels is through and through a man from Munich. Not just because he chooses to drink Augustiner beer even when outside of Bavaria is he the ideal local guide for the annual company’s outing to the “Wies’n”.
Ronja is the young goose at commotion – and yet not green behind the ears! During studying and different internships in Germany and abroad she already realised that live-marketing is her burning desire.
Her special interest applies to social and digital media.
In her spare time Ronja sings in a band and is musician with body and soul. As a young professional Ronja puts great value on innovative productions and thereby fits perfectly in the commotion team that stands for artfully completed made-to-measure approaches.
