Hamburg, Stockholm, April 30, 2019 – Bauer Media Group‘s OCP (online comparison platform) emphasizes its growth path by announcing Therese Fiala as Head of Brand Marketing as of May 1st.
This newly established position will focus on building a global OCP umbrella brand within the Bauer network.

Björn Lander, Head of Business Area OCP at Bauer Media Group: “Bauer’s OCP business is expanding and brand building is the key to sustainable success. Investing extensively in marketing and hiring Therese as an incredible Brand Marketing expert who will make a huge difference shows the importance of the OCP business for the Group. Therese’s extensive experience especially from the FMCG sector will be a real asset and I am very much looking forward to working with her.”
