In order to implement the BILD Group's strategic vision "Digital Only", CEO Claudius Senst has reorganised the management team for the transformation in digital and print with immediate effect.

In the newly created position of Chief Digital Officer (CDO), Nikolaus Glasmacher, previously Managing Director Sport BILD Group, will be responsible for BILD's digital, video and sports business. He will bundle the primarily marketing-driven management areas and be responsible for the expansion of existing and the development of new revenue streams.

As CDO BILD, Nikolaus Glasmacher will also take over the responsibilities of the previous Managing Director Digital, Thorsten Wiesner, who is leaving his current position at BILD after eight years on the best of terms and is currently in talks about future assignments.

As Managing Director BILD, Andreas Conradt continues to have overall strategic responsibility for the newspapers BILD, BILD am SONNTAG and B.Z. and will also actively support and lead their future in an increasingly digital publication portfolio as Chief Transformation Officer (CTO) with immediate effect.

Claudius Senst, CEO BILD Group: "I am incredibly grateful to Thorsten Wiesner for his outstanding work - he has played a key role in shaping the digital development of BILD in recent years and has successfully set major milestones for us. I wish him all the best fors his new plans and would be delighted if we could continue to work on joint projects in the future.

In the sports business, Nikolaus Glasmacher and his team have built up the BILD Group's digital sports activities, in particular by acquiring exclusive sports rights and entering into strategic partnerships, and in his new role he will continue to expand the digital growth of BILD as a whole. Andreas Conradt stands for a culturally respectful transformation. With his many years of outstanding print experience, he will actively shape the change for our newspapers so that they can accompany us into a digital-only future in an economically viable way for as long as possible."
