Rainer Kunst

CEO

My name is Rainer Kunst. I live in Düsseldorf with my wife and my two daughters and am the founder, shareholder and managing director of several companies.

My origins lie in advertising. In 1988 I trained as an advertising merchant and then studied business administration at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf. During my studies I worked at Kreutz & Partner advertising agency. Immediately after completing my studies, I started as a consultant at BMZ! FCA (now Saatchi & Saatchi) and made my first and only side trip to o.tel.o in 1997. 1998 I went to the legendary weaver, Hodel, Schmid, advertising agency in Switzerland. For W,H,S, then also to Vienna and Berlin. 2001 a year in New York. From 2002 to September 2004 to the cayenne advertising agency in Düsseldorf.

In October 2004 I started my own agency for new communication. I sold my shares at the end of 2008 and founded Kunst und Kollegen Kommunikationsagentur on 01.01.2009. In recent years, this has resulted in a group of companies that will soon all be located under one roof in Florastrasse in Düsseldorf.

Entrepreneurially, I am driven by trying things out, by doing. Done is better than perfect. And I have (of course) a soft spot for startups.
