René Steinbusch appointed CEO of EMG Germany

The former COO takes over the management of EMG Germany GmbH effective immediately

Hürth, Germany, 04 July 2022: Europe’s leading broadcast service provider EMG today announced the appointment of industry veteran René Steinbusch as the CEO of EMG Germany GmbH. He succeeds Stefan Hoff, who is stepping down from the position after 14 years of steering the German operations through many changes – most notably the transfer of Nobeo GmbH to EMG Germany GmbH and the merger of all companies belonging to the EMG Group under one brand. Stefan will remain serving as the Chairman of the Association of German Service Providers for the audiovisual industry (VTFF).

René Steinbusch will work closely with EMG Group Chief Executive, Shaun Gregory, to create a new growth strategy in Germany. After joining Nobeo in 2009 as Head of Organisation and HR, and as the Authorised Officer and member of the Leadership Team, René has gained the trust of the German team, customers and shareholders from the beginning. For the last six years the now 52-year-old from Bonn has been the German Chief Operating Officer, as well as covering other areas of the business including HR and Commercial.

René Steinbusch, CEO of EMG Germany said: “Now that the merger into EMG is fully complete, the timing is perfect for me to develop a new chapter for EMG Germany. We are driving an exciting transformation program across the group, and I’m keen to see Germany play an ever more important part in that story. I would like to thank Shaun Gregory and the Global Leadership Team for their trust in me and I am very much looking forward to continuing to work together.”

Shaun Gregory, CEO of EMG Group said: “EMG Germany is an important part of the EMG Group, and a market where we see huge potential beyond our core studio based business. We are assessing a range of new opportunities, and I’m excited about the possibilities that EMG can develop. René has the absolute backing from myself and our shareholders, and is welcomed to the Global Leadership Team. At this point, my special thanks also go to Stefan Hoff, who has confidently led our German company through many changes and challenges since 2008. We all wish him the best for his future plans and ventures.”
