He frequently speaks at national and international industry events and is a member of the board at IAB Switzerland, where he is a part of the «Programmatic» focus group.

As Co-Founder and Partner, Tobias is responsible for the strategic development of new business areas and new partnerships. He actively contributes to the development of the digital marketing industry as a speaker at conferences and lecturer at various universities and colleges.

When Hannes isn’t looking after his team members and/or their clients, the amateur film expert is getting excited over typical highbrow subjects: soccer, rock’n’roll and steak.

Hannes has been with Webrepublic since the early days when it consisted of only three desks and a barbecue. Today, he is responsible for search engine advertising, search engine optimization, social media marketing, display advertising and graphics at Webrepublic.

Chris Hanan
