Anne-Kathrin Velten appointed as new editor in chief of ACROSS Magazine

The ACROSS Magazine welcomes business editor Anne-Kathrin Velten as its new editor in chief.

Dear Reader,

First of all, Happy New Year. I am delighted to be part of the European Placemaking Community in my new position as editor-in-chief of ACROSS. As a trained business editor, I have reported for various German-speaking and international media, primarily on consumer and global trends for the past ten years. 
Now, I am looking forward to and am curious about everything that we will be creating and launching together this year. For 2022, the saying “the bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity for growth” is definitely more true than ever.

I look forward to working with you, your input on the content, your suggestions and impulses. I very much hope that we will be able to exchange ideas and get to know each other personally in 2022.

Cheers to more shared successes in the new year!

Anne-Kathrin Velten, 
Editor in Chief
