With effect as of March 20, 2013 Dr. Ulrike Handel (41) is in office as Chair
of the Management Board and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ad pepper media

responsible for the expansion and the development of the group which is made
up of companies from the fields of IT, publishing, digital, agencies, sports
and fashion. Before that, Dr. Handel had been working for Axel Springer AG for

Managing Director of Müller Medien GmbH & Co. KG, is convinced that this is an
ideal appointment: "With her 20 years of extensive experience in the media
industry and digital markets, Ulrike Handel brings exactly the expertise we
need now at ad pepper media. With her at the helm, we are now steering into a
new phase of our corporate development. Together with Chief Financial Officer
Jens Körner, and applying her know-how, her management experience and her
personality, she will position ad pepper media with lasting effects, continue
to develop the company successfully and thus set the course for the next
growth phase."

"For me, ad pepper media is the pioneer in online marketing, characterized by
its broad-based portfolio, its global networking, its technological innovation
powers and its outstanding crew", explains Dr. Ulrike Handel, adding: "I am
really looking forward to shaping the future together with the team."
