On her appointment, Sukopp says: "CCO. Totally crazy! That's why I'm so excited about the team, the creative opportunities on existing clients and in the agency itself - there's an incredible amount of potential in GGH. I hope I can unleash that with everyone here.”
"We did not make the decision easy to find a successor for my longtime friend and creative partner Florian Grimm. All the more, I am delighted to have Diana Sukopp, a great and experienced creative, who masters not only classical but also many other disciplines, such as digital and CRM, which also play a major role at GGH MullenLowe. In addition, Diana is a great fit for our existing management team with my colleague Marc Pech, COO and Nina Jünemann CSO," commented Benedikt Holtappels, CEO GGH MullenLowe.
