The Pforzheim-based media and IT group Meyle+Müller acquires a stake in the strategic communications agency campaigners Network. “For us as a young company, it is a great opportunity to have strong and well-connected partners at our side with the experienced and established media experts from Meyle+Müller,” say Clemens Sadler and Philipp Dörflinger, the founders and managing directors of campaigners Network.

“With campaigners Network, we now count an agile speedboat among our group fleet. We see great potential in campaigners Network’s business model and digital expertise and are sure that together we will successfully steer into the future,” said Eugen Müller, managing partner of Meyle+Müller.

The two founders of campaigners Network met during their dual studies at DHBW Stuttgart and at Meyle+Müller, respectively, and ventured into self-employment together directly after graduating in 2018. Today, three and a half years after its founding, the agency has grown in terms of personnel and draws on a large network of freelancers and specialists from a wide range of disciplines. The agency’s main business is the development and implementation of marketing campaigns and communication strategies for companies, organizations, associations and municipalities. Election campaigns are also part of the young startup’s repertoire; for example, campaigners Network created the election campaign of the current mayor of Stuttgart, Dr. Frank Nopper.

“For us, it’s always about the question of ‘why’, the ‘reason why’. Why should someone choose a product, use a service or vote for a politician?”, says managing director Clemens Sadler, explaining the philosophy behind campaigners Network. In the future, he says, the agency wants to focus even more on its digital expertise in accompanying digitization projects, designing websites and Internet presences, and implementing formats such as livestreams, which are gaining in relevance not least because of the Corona pandemic.
