Munich / Berlin, May 09 2022
Scout24 SE, operator of the digital marketplace ImmoScout24, appoints Jorin Verges (40) as new Director Corporate Communications. The experienced journalist and media expert is responsible for the communication of Scout24 SE and the ImmoScout24 brand. Jorin Verges reports directly to Tobias Hartmann, CEO of Scout24 SE, and succeeds Jan Flaskamp, who previously held the responsibility as Vice President Communications & Marketing. Flaskamp is leaving the company at his own request for new professional challenges.
“We want to make all decisions around real estate as easy as online shopping. This also includes explaining the often complex and difficult processes in a most easy and understandable way. We are very pleased to have found a proven communications expert in Jorin, who can provide us with significant support in this task”, say Tobias Hartmann, CEO of Scout24 SE.
Jorin started his career as a reporter in the sports editorial department of B.Z.. Subsequently, as a page-maker (“Blattmacher”) and deputy editor-in-chief at B.Z. and BILD, he was mainly responsible for the content of the print edition. Most recently, the media expert primarily drove the management of transformation processes, the development of new business models, as well as the launch of BILD's TV channel.
“The real estate market itself, ImmoScout24 as the first destination for real estate, and Scout24 as a tech company offer many exciting stories from a communications perspective. I am looking forward to telling these stories and showing what makes Scout24 and ImmoScout24 special as a company, but also as an employer. Together with the team, we will make brand and strategy communication even more active, assertive, and emotional”, says Jorin Verges, new Director Corporate Communications.
"On behalf of the entire management team, we would like to thank Jan Flaskamp for his extraordinary commitment. Jan Flaskamp has left a lasting mark on our company with his communicative expertise. We wish him all the best for the future," says Tobias Hartmann.
