Thorsten Thierhoff

Thorsten Thierhoff will be the new Co-Managing Director of Ringier Publishing GmbH and Juno Kunstverlag GmbH in Germany, jointly managing both companies with Anne Sasse. Thierhoff has been working for Ringier in Germany since 2004, most recently as Head of Distribution and Business Development. He will take up his new duties immediately.

In designing this year’s annual report for Ringier, New York based concept artist Wade Guyton took a series of photographs to reduce one of his large works to 360 individual component pieces, which he then had bound between two book covers. As simple as that.

Ringier generated overall revenue of CHF 988.5 million in 2014, of which 32.1 percent came from its digital businesses, up from 25.7 million a year earlier. 2014 EBITDA came in at CHF 82.3 million, which equates to an EBITDA margin of 8.3 percent. The Group’s further systematic pursuit of its diversification strategy, the profitable acquisitions made in recent years, its focus on digital growth markets in Eastern Europe and cost optimization in its traditional and still substantial publishing business all contributed to this satisfactory result.

Cover The Best!

On April 10, 2015, Ringier will publish its first edition of The Best! What to visit in Switzerland. The new lifestyle magazine, which will be published in Mandarin, is aimed at Chinese tourists planning a trip to Switzerland. It will be co-produced by Ringier teams in Switzerland and China.
