Kern Gottbrath Kommunikation was founded in 1999. At the time, Susanne Kern was working as editor-in-chief in the sports department at “TextilWirtschaft” magazine. Till Gottbrath was working for “TextilWirtschaft” as a freelance photographer, journalist and a specialist for functional textiles. In addition, Till also wrote and photographed for a number of other companies in the outdoor industry. As a result, he kept receiving more and more offers of work.
Susanne and Till’s many successful joint projects inspired them to set up their own agency. After numerous long discussions about the goals, ideals and values of their new venture they decided to take the plunge and found Kern Gottbrath Kommunikation. Immediately Craft, Primus and Yeti came on board as clients. Things started so well that they broke even at the end of the first month. Today, KGK continues to evolve steadily and healthily without seeking rapid expansion. And it is still committed to Susanne and Till’s original ideals and values.
