Petros Sioutis, Silke Sage and Efstathios Efthimiadis have taken over MAFO’s former Media Welt publishing house from founder Jörg Spangemacher in August of this year under the new name EYEPRESS Fachmedien GmbH. As former employees of the company, all three have many years of experience in the publishing industry as well as in the optical industry. Petros Sioutis will be the new managing director, Silke Sage will be responsible for the editorial management and Efstathios Efthimiadis as the creative director will be responsible for layout and production. Sioutis graduated in Business Administration in 1991. Before taking over at Eyepress, he managed the business at MediaWelt for 17 years. As editor-in-chief of GlobalCONTACT for the past 10 years and also of FOCUS since 2012, Sage reported on the ophthalmic optics industry, which she knows in detail as a trained optometrist and engineer. With a professional background in layout and production and a passion for design, Efthimiadis has been in charge of MediaWelt’s creative aspects since 2007 and is now looking forward to investing his wealth of ideas in his own company. Together, the triumvirate will take the EYEPRESS Fachmedien GmbH into the future and publish the usual wide range of specialist magazines for experts from the various disciplines of the ophthalmic field.
EYEPRESS Fachmedien GmbH includes five German and English language magazines and three address directories.
