esome co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer Manuel König faces new challenges

Five years after founding the media outcome company esome, co-founder Manuel König will be taking on new challenges.

Starting late summer this year, König will build a new company in the fast-growing field of social commerce together with a group of investors. The transformation to digital sales on various platforms, accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, brings challenges to many advertisers, for which the new company will provide solutions.

Before joining esome, König worked as a management consultant with The Boston Consulting Group. In his role as Chief Strategy Officer, he accompanied building up esome's own technical platform and media solutions business, as well as supported key clients and agency partners. He also managed the Belgrade office and was responsible for the strategic integration of esome as a link to ProSiebenSAT.1.

König's position will not be filled, his responsibilities will be divided within the esome management team. Five years after its foundation, esome is future-oriented and has a strong management team.

"Manuel will leave a noticeable gap at esome," says Hansjörg Blase, managing director and co-founder of esome. "He has accompanied the development of the company for 6 years and has played a decisive role in shaping it. We will miss his strategic intuition and his solution orientation. At the same time, we are proud that Manuel will go his own way and we are sure that he will be successful with it".
