Main focus: Public relations, reputation management, crisis communications
Thomas Stein
My professional passion is corporate communications, especially in mission-critical situations and crises. Today, building a good reputation and sustainability are inseparable for me.

"Nothing is more exciting than business" was once the advertising slogan of Wirtschaftswoche. And even though I was only able to really understand the business section of the F.A.Z. after studying economics in Bonn, I still feel the same way today. Only windsurfing and skiing are as exciting for me.

I started my career as a communications consultant, however, with creative and partly advertising-integrated communications campaigns at Kohtes&Klewes (later KetchumPleon), which later became the market-leading PR agency in Germany. For more than ten years, I advised and supported companies from a wide range of industries and public institutions in their communications, most recently as a senior consultant and deputy location manager in Bonn.

At the international communications consultancy Instinctif Partners, I spent more than 13 years as Managing Partner helping to strategically shape internal and external communications for financial service providers, industrial companies, medium-sized enterprises and start-ups. Unfortunately, all too often sustainability did not seem to be a relevant topic, especially for financial service providers.

Combining communication and sustainability development now at Licennium Partners was therefore the logical next step in my professional life.

Let us talk!
