47-year-old radio professional Boris Lochthofen will become partner and CEO of the investment network of Leipzig media and technology investors Erwin Linnenbach (masqueradio GmbH with investments in, among others, Wolffberg Management Communication, actaport) and Jozsef Bugovics (Bugovics Industries GmbH with investments in Divicon Media Holding and Twinner, among others).
From January 1, Boris Lochthofen will take over operational management of Teutocast GmbH, Raudio.biz GmbH and National German Radio GmbH as well as other network companies as managing partner and CEO. The group of companies invests in innovative services in the areas of media financing and media technology.
Erwin Linnenbach and Jozsef Bugovics say:
“We are very pleased that Boris Lochthofen will take over the management of our investments as entrepreneur and CEO. With us in the ownership group and in the team with the managing directors of the various companies, he will provide further impetus for the further development of our business models.
It was recently announced that Lochthofen, currently director of the MDR broadcasting center in Thuringia, would like to become director of the MDR – as successor to outgoing director Karola Wille. As we know, the new director of the MDR will be Ralf Ludwig on November 1 (this is what kress.de reports).
Karola Wille says:
“I regret and respect Boris Lochthofen’s decision. Under his leadership, MDR Thuringia successfully developed linear and non-linear offerings, achieved great supra-regional success for the investigative editorial team of Thuringian State Broadcasting and has established a strong presence with on-site dialogue formats in the region. I thank him for our collaboration over the past eight years, his commitment, his passion and his professionalism.
To the person: Boris Lochthofen has been director of the Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk in Thuringia since 2016 and is also spokesperson for the management of MDR Media GmbH, in which the public broadcaster consolidates its private investments. It currently is. Prior to his career at MDR, he was a managing director of various media and marketing companies.
