Sandra Ganzenmüller

With an intuitive sense for effective communication and emergent trends in the food and beverage industries, she sets the agency’s course.

Following diverse experiences in the food industry, Sandra Ganzenmüller turned her attention to public relations and communications, where she has been for 15 years – more than 10 of which were spent as a freelancer. As a nutrition scientist and PR manager, she learned early on that combining her professional training in a specialized field with well-founded communication skills was the best recipe for success in PR for the food and beverages industry – and this skill set is highly valued by her customers. She is focused on her ambitions, so obtaining qualifications as a commercial manager for the beverage industry and certified beer sommelier was simply the next logical step. Drawing inspiration from her involvement in various associations, she is always on the cutting edge. Sandra Ganzenmüller keeps a sharp eye on strategies her clients wish to pursue and implements customized courses of action – online as well as offline, B2B as well as B2C – in order to successfully achieve the desired communication goals. Identifying trends and combining these with strategic concepts, extensive experience and her gut instincts when it comes to communicating ideas – this is her approach to work. Not only do clients profit from this strategy, opinion leaders in the food and beverage industries do as well. She advises and supports associations with influence at a national level as well as successfully branded companies with their public relations – many of whom she has been assisting for a long time. To her, PR means professional, well-planned relationship management at the highest level.
