It takes amazing individuals to support our members and enable arts and culture to flourish; meet the faces behind the IMZ!
Market Access + Network
"As funding manager at the IMZ, I help the performing arts sector thrive in a fast-changing audiovisual sector. It’s a challenging but fascinating task that perfectly fits my passion for music, culture and media."
Market Access + Membership
"Culture is a way of seeing. I like to think that through the IMZ, the performing arts sector has a chance to grow, find new audiences, and rediscover itself on a constant basis. After all, the meaning of life is the unfinished."
Market Access + Audience Development
As a trained musician myself, I believe that music and performing arts are essential to our society and culture. Working at the IMZ allows me to help improve the visibility and availability of the arts by fostering connections between stage and film, thereby making the industry fit for the future.
"The breadth of events the IMZ stages for its members seeks to adapt the industry to current developments. This interdisciplinary approach appeals to my eagerness to foster ongoing projects at the IMZ, and thereby support the performing arts as a whole."
Marketing + Communications
Marketing + Communications
"With a background in media and a passion for arts and culture, I feel strongly aligned with the values the IMZ represents. It is my responsibility to visualise the dialogue between performing arts and media, carrying our message out into the network and beyond."
Communications + PR
“Preserving the performative arts is vital as what we see and hear on stage invariably becomes a part of us. Nobody remembers who the richest entrepreneur was in 1824, but people will recall the melodies of Beethoven for millennia. My job is to help make that happen by articulating the IMZ's message on all channels.”

“Working for a non-profit whose main goal is cultivating relationships and spreading arts and culture makes me feel that I'm doing my part to bring some music and joy to the world. If you want to get in touch with us, I'll probably be the one picking up the phone or replying to your e-mail.”
Deputy Secretary General
Audience Development + Market Access
"All sorts of cultural fields - from visual art to history, music and dance - have always been of great interest to me! It enriches your life, broadens your mind and brings people together. Working at the IMZ means to combine those interests with your daily business.”
“It is my privilege and pleasure to support both young and established professionals through the IMZ Academy, and to connect industry experts via the Avant Première conference programme. It is amazing how much talent, knowledge and inspiration can be found within our network and industry!”
