Events at a unique place.
From Dutch royalty to sports personalities and luminaries in the fields of politics and business: As an event manager at the Mercedes-Benz Museum, Anja Reisige plans, organizes and supports events at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart and the Classic Center in Fellbach – and makes sure that guests enjoy their visit. In the interview, she tells us why she likes to see astonished guests, what her all-time favorite Christmas card was, and how Stuttgart compares to New York as a place to live.
It was important to me to work for a company whose values and products I can identify with. Mercedes-Benz was simply a perfect fit.
Personal details: Anja Reisige (49) started her career by training as an industrial clerk. She then transferred to the accounting department of a german-based (Düsseldorf) fashion company. However, she quickly realized that she wanted to have a more creative work instead of rows of numbers and piles of receipts. That is why Anja Reisige, who is originally from the Münsterland region in Germany, decided to study tourism at Worms University of Applied Sciences. In 1999, she completed her thesis in partnership with an event agency in New York. Among other things, she was involved in the organization of a pre-event for the UN General Assembly - followed by almost ten years of working in the US. When she is not making sure that her guests at the events in the Mercedes-Benz Museum are having a pleasant time, she enjoys training her voice. Although she claims that she cannot sing, she has been taking singing lessons for two years. This gives her an excellent break from work.
