About us

Angelika Hermann-Meier PR was established over 25 years ago, and is thus older than Google. Thorough research is part of our DNA. In our hyperconnected age, we keep our eye on the ball - and are dead serious about the skills of our craft.

There’s this person we know. As experienced media professionals, we are familiar with the industry and have excellent contacts with decision-makers in the travel, hotel, wellness, health, gourmet, lifestyle, economy and sports sectors in the German-speaking world.

We love what we do. Journalists and clients appreciate our enthusiasm and success. We have been working with most of our clients for many years. In the SRT Tourism Handbook, we regularly feature in the TOP 10 of German agencies, and were ranked third in 2018.

We think out of the box. The AHM PR team is a wild but coherent mix of experienced strategists, impulsive creative minds and dauntless digital natives.
