    Together with her team, Maribel communicates ERSTE Foundation and its projects to the world. Joining the organisation in early 2007, Maribel, a Munich-born art historian, journalist, art critic and former press officer of EXPO 2000 in Hanover and documenta X in Kassel, has since established ERSTE Foundation’s Communications Department. She considers her job the most fulfilling that she can imagine: talking all day long about things that you are deeply convinced of. Currently, she is learning Serbian at ERSTE Foundation: "Ja zaista imam najbolji posao na svetu!"

    Gerald proves his communication skills every time he takes a group of people safely to the mountains, be it summer or winter. A certified hiking instructor, he knows how to orient himself and enjoys cooperating with others. Before he started supporting the Team of ERSTE Foundation in always finding the best communicative path, Gerald studied Political Science, worked for the publishing house Freytag & Berndt and even wrote a few books on hiking and skitouring in the Alps.

    Belgrade, Berlin, Belgrade, Vienna, Venice, Vienna, Belgrade, Vienna. Jovana has certainly moved around a lot! This has, however, only added to her experience and had significant impact on her professional development - skills, which the communications expert has honed even more when joining ERSTE Foundation in 2008. Before joining the team, Jovana worked at the OSCE Mission to Serbia on the country’s democratic reforms. She has a demanding job, handling, among other things, PR activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Serbia, but always keeps her cool. How cool!
