COO Stephan Haagen

Operative Visionary

Stephan has long been part of the Aperto family, helping to shape the agency since before the millennium. As a member of the board, he is responsible for the operational side of the agency as well as its expansion in Asia – using his initiative to kickstart Aperto’s offices in China and Vietnam. He is also in charge of accounting, process and quality management. Before his agency career, the graduated businessman worked for the Berlin Senate as well as for the European Commission at the United Nations in New York. Stephan’s professional background and wealth of experience is one reason Aperto was able to get an early foothold in the public sector, using his multifaceted skillset to guide the agency to independent growth. Paired with his passion for operational leadership, he has ensured the structural strength that has led Aperto to ongoing international success. And Aperto managed to satisfy Stephan’s love of travel along the way.

Aperto is more than our name. It's our manifesto. We are open, because only those who are open can connect.
