I’m leaving Digital Collections to join the SPIEGEL Verlag

After almost 19 years as developer and product manager at Digital Asset Management (DAM) vendor Digital Collections, I’m moving on, joining the IT department of magazine publisher SPIEGEL Verlag on August 1st.

It’s hard to say good-bye to my wonderful colleagues and customers. Almost everything I learned, I learned from them – here’s my summary of those 19 years.

Digital Collections’ warm-hearted and generous farewell leaves me speechless. They even publish their good-byes on the company blog. Thanks so much!

At DER SPIEGEL, I’ll help take care of their DAM systems, moving into more of a project management role. (Sounds like fun, but I’ll miss software development.) I’m looking forward to working with amazing people, for a great magazine, and getting to know one of Europe’s largest press archives. Wish me luck :)

P.S.: I’ll keep running Planet DAM, and writing about DAM on this blog. (These were personal projects anyway, not a company activity.)
