Holger Stevens will take over the newly created CvD (editorial coordinator) position at ddp images as of January 1, 2019.
„The successful development of our core business and the planned strategic expansion of our activities into new markets and market segments require a clear focus. Katharina Doerk and I are both the management and the editors-in-chief of ddp images. By establishing the position of CvD, we are relieving our editorial workload and freeing up time in which we can drive new projects forward more quickly,“ Ulf Schmidt-Funke explains the background.
„It is a real stroke of luck that we were able to win Holger Stevens, a colleague from our own ranks, for this challenging task“, says Managing Director Katharina Doerk. „Thus, possible friction losses are avoided and he can immediately set accents, actively reevaluating the presentation of the agency’s offer rang. The good and successful interaction between customers, editorship team and authors is further intensified.
Holger Stevens has been Photo & Assignment Editor at ddp images since 2013 and has also been organizing trainee plans since 2015.
After completing his studies at the University of Hamburg with a Master’s degree in American Literature, he completed a traineeship at the press photo agency action press and then worked for three years in the photo editorial department of the dapd news agency – most recently as CvD Sport.
