Munich, April 6, 2022

The management of PHAROS - The Post Group, formerly ARRI Media, is being further enhanced, with Peter Gerckens joining Josef Reidinger on the team, where he will be responsible for the company's commercial affairs.

On its way to becoming a full-service provider together with its affiliated companies Ludwig Kameraverleih and MBF Filmtechnik, PHAROS is broadening its management expertise with the addition of Peter Gerckens, a prominent expert in finance, organization and digital transformation. He joins the company alongside long-standing managing director Josef Reidinger: "With the new constellation, our clients can trust in a company with a strong commercial structure and a highly professional client orientation."

Before coming to PHAROS, Peter Gerckens studied business at St. Gallen and Harvard and was a strategy advisor to, for instance, international media companies at the management consultancy McKinsey. Gerckens is enthusiastic about this new role: "Our customers' challenges are becoming more and more complex, and the financial and creative pressure on them is growing constantly. As a technology and service partner, PHAROS has an excellent basis from which to provide our clients with high-quality and efficient solutions. I am impressed by the PHAROS team and look forward to adding more great chapters to our company's long tradition together."

Josef Reidinger – for years now the face of the company– is also looking forward to the collaboration: "I am convinced that this means we are perfectly positioned to continue giving our customers what they have relied on for so long, while at the same time offering them exciting new paths for us to explore together."
