18 March 2024: A new German Alliance for the Connect Alliance

The Connect Alliance partners are delighted to announce that two new German members will join the network with immediate effect.

Michaela Justi, founder of Media Sales Company (MSC) GmbH and Daniela Karandjulov, founder of Media Overland, will both be valuable members of the Connect Alliance for the German market.

In these challenging times, we believe having a combined partner in the network will better serve the German market and its advertisers thanks to the complementary portfolios of both companies: Media Sales Company (MSC) is a trusted partner of leading business and news publications in several key European markets, including Trustmedia in Belgium, FD Mediagroep in the Netherlands, 24 Ore System in Italy, CM Vocento in Spain and M Publicité in France, while MEDIA Overland is specialised in media across Eastern European markets and is currently looking to expand its portfolio beyond this region. Its current portfolio includes the global media brands Newsweek Publishing, The Daily Beast and the Japanese Yomiuri Shimbun, in addition to the main media brands in Eastern Europe.

For more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch directly with one of the existing Connect Alliance partners.
