Ballou, the pan-european agency for high-growth tech companies and VCs, is announcing a management change. With immediate effect, Nicole Schaar will take over the management of the German office, succeeding Jörn Dunker, who will now head the new office in Barcelona/Spain. Above all, Schaar plans to accelerate the growth of Ballou Germany and continuously develop the team.

Nicole Schaar, Managing Director Ballou Germany: „After more than a decade at Ballou, I am delighted to be taking on the role of Managing Director. It is an honour to work with such a talented and dedicated team that continues to impress through strategic PR work and effective communication measures. In particular, the close collaboration with our clients has strengthened us as a location and made many successes possible. I am convinced that we will achieve a great deal together and further expand our position.

Colette Ballou, Chairwoman Ballou Group: „Nicole was one of our first employees at the German office, having joined eleven years ago. She has risen steadily through the ranks to become the head of the German office, a role she very much deserves. She knows the challenges and opportunities of the market better than anyone. I am excited to see the heights our German office will attain under her leadership.

The London office has also recently announced a change in leadership: Fiona Houston has taken over the position of Managing Director there. This means that the majority of Ballou’s European offices (with Léonora Sama-Itoua as Managing Director Ballou France) are once again in female hands – a rarity in the tech industry.

Cédric Voigt, CEO Ballou Group: „Our core industry is still predominantly male. Many companies want to live gender equality, but this still doesn’t work in practice. We want to show that tech and management work regardless of gender or family and set a new standard in the tech landscape.
