Jochen Quast - Consultant Marketing & Business Development

It started with a job add in the local newspaper. In 1998 I was so lucky to find a job that allowed me to make a living with one my biggest hobbies - video games. I worked for various national and international companies in marketing, business development and PR and equally liked my roles as freelance consultant and employee. My key area of expertise is the entertainment industry, but I am also happy to support you in other sectors, an external view will generate plenty of new insights.
