With the beginning of the new year, Jessica Schultka (Publishing Director), Sabine Resch (Head of Finance, Human Resources & Marketing), and Andre Trofimov (Head of Sales, Logistics & IT) will jointly take over the management of Advent-Verlag GmbH, based in Lüneburg, according to a press release from the publishing house. Jessica Schultka will be the spokesperson for the management. Dieter Neef, Chief Financial Officer of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Germany and Managing Director of Advent-Verlag GmbH since July 2019, will return to the Supervisory Board as a shareholder representative.

The new management team

Jessica Schultka has been working at Advent-Verlag since 2015 and has been publishing director since 2016. The graduate theologian is responsible for the editorial team and the content of the publishing house. She is also currently completing a part-time MBA in business administration. Sabine Resch has been working at Advent-Verlag since 2012 as head of finance and human resources. She is a certified accountant and worked for many years for the CFO of DE-VAU-GE Gesundkostwerk Deutschland GmbH as well as for Coca-Cola and Dailycer Germany. Andre Trofimov is a certified business administrator and has been with Advent Publishing for more than ten years. He was responsible for the commercial management of Christa-Medien GmbH and has been head of sales, logistics and IT since 2015.

Change back to the supervisory board

Dieter Neef, CFO of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Germany, took over the management of Advent-Verlag GmbH on an interim basis in July 2019. With his many years of experience as a manager for globally operating automotive groups, he has made the publishing house fit for the future along with intensively preparing the new management for their new tasks. "Over the past year and a half, we have worked intensively as a management team to put the publishing house on a solid foundation and I am very pleased to now be able to hand over the management of the publishing house to the new managing directors," said Neef.

"We, the new management, but also the entire publishing team are very grateful to Dieter Neef for his work as managing director at Advent Publishing. He has thoroughly analysed key processes and important areas in the publishing house, initiated improvement processes and helped to form a team that is optimally positioned for the future," adds Jessica Schultka. Neef is returning to the supervisory board as a shareholder representative and will thus continue to be associated with Advent-Verlag.
