Jurgen P. is an energetic and versatile, yet conscientious selfstarter with considerable expertise for solving
complex problems in the fastpaced entertainment and new media industries. An adept negotiator and strategic
manager with exceptional interpersonal skills, handson acrossthevaluechain experience, and extensive knowledge of
the telecom, media, and entertainment TME market, its players, and industry trends. A man of integrity with a
