Metro is new partner company

Gerd Koslowski - METRO AG

The Academic Society welcomes Gerd Koslowski from METRO as a new sponsor! Since 2018, the political science graduate has been Head of Corporate Communications at METRO AG – the leading international food wholesaler with locations in over 30 countries. As the central management holding company, METRO AG performs group management tasks and bundles management and administrative functions for METRO.

Previously, Gerd Koslowski held management positions in corporate communications at various companies – including Bertelsmann, Galeria Kaufhof, Arcandor, EDEKA and 1. FC Köln. In his spare time, he is passionate about traveling through Europe – preferably by motorcycle.

We asked Gerd Koslowski what currently motivates him professionally:

The biggest challenge for #communication at METRO is currently…

… the sustainable and successful transformation of METRO into a pure-play food wholesaler for professional customers based on our sCore growth strategy.

From a cooperation with the Academic Society we hope to…

… a fruitful exchange with other international companies on all aspects of communication as well as insights into trends and findings from science.

Research topics that particularly interest me at the moment….

… are the consequences of social mediatization (image before text, the shorter the better, intensification) for communications work, the sensible use of suitable AI tools and data-based communications management.

Welcome, Gerd Koslowski and METRO!
