European Bioplastics: New Head of Communications appointed

On 1 July Mrs Kristy-Barbara Lange took over the position as Head of Communications at European Bioplastics - the Berlin based association representing the interests of the European bioplastics industry. Lange will be responsible for press and media relations and report to Managing Director Hasso von Pogrell.

Before joining European Bioplastics Lange worked for two communication agencies in Berlin. From 2007 to 2010 she was employed by Hill & Knowlton Communications GmbH - an international network agency. As an Account Manager focussing on Public Affairs and Corporate Communications Lange counted well known international energy companies as well as major European infrastructure projects among her clients. She gained comprehensive expertise and insight into international communication requirements - especially with respect to sensitive issues in the field of Public Affairs.

In five years of working experience Lange developed a focus on media relations, corporate publishing and event management. "The European bioplastics market is growing continuously and so is European Bioplastics. The diversity of our members as well as the diversity of their products represent a challenge for the communications team of a smaller association. Targetgroup sensitivity and communications efficiency will be of highest priority", says Lange.

She complements the team of European Bioplastics around Managing Director Hasso von Pogrell. "As the most advanced association of the bioplastics industry worldwide, well defined and focused communications measures take an important place within our scope of work. The communication strategy will be continuously revised according to the needs of our fast growing industry", says von Pogrell.
