Keeping It In The Family

Veteran German promoter Karsten Jahnke looks to be doing his best to ensure his company remains a family business by appointing his grandson chief exec.

Ben Mitha, 26, will share the position with Hauke Tedsen and Jahnke, himself.

Mitha, who studied economics, has already been with the company for 10 years and recently worked on tours for Sean Paul and Iggy Azalea.

“I see my grandson’s entry into the management as a very large gain for the company,” Jahnke explained.

Mitha says he’s delighted to head up the company’s commercial future.

Having spent 35 years in the Harvestehude district of Hamburg, the company will now begin a new chapter in the Schanze district.

All the email and phone contacts remain the same.

The company’s upcoming tours include Sean Paul, Herman van VeenStephen Malkmus & The Jicks, and Chilly Gonzales.
