We are pleased to announce a valuable addition to the team at our Mannheim Head Office. In July 2015 Steffen Schwarzenberger joined effective world as Chief Operations Officer (COO) and Digital Marketing Consultant. With his support and contributions to global process optimisation and strategy as well as in direct client contact, we will continue to improve and perfect our global service offering.


Steffen Schwarzenberger said: “effective world is an exciting company with a fantastic international team –   I am delighted to be a part of the group and to be able to contribute to our business strategies and to further develop and expand the operations of the company – in Mannheim and throughout the world.”



After completing his MA in International Economics and Business Information Technology, Steffen gained his first experience in an internet start-up just at the time of the “new economy”. During his university years he and some other students had already formed their own PR agency and later he worked freelance in PR, marketing and digital media. In 2009 Steffen was appointed as Corporate Marketing & Communications Manager for a global intralogistics company with its head office in Luxemburg. His last position was as Senior Manager for Corporate Development where one of his many responsibilities was the relaunch of the company website in multiple languages and on a new technical platform. In the meantime Steffen has 10 years of solid experience in the online and B2B marketing sectors.


In 2015, when the company moved its head office to the USA, Steffen decided it was time to make a career change. For effective world this was a stroke of luck and we are delighted to welcome Steffen Schwarzenberger as our team’s COO and Digital Consultant!


Hermann Bareis (CEO) commented: “Steffen and I have had a good working relationship for a long time – as both his personal and professional profiles fit well with the effective world company philosophy, it makes perfect sense that we should join forces to lead the company forward. It just remains to say, Welcome to our team, Steffen!”
