Stefan is responsible for the overall performance of the company and works on all major projects as crew chief and direct client contact. His responsibility is also the organisation and supervision of promotional projects, managing the car pool, marketing and data management, as well as bid proposals, accounting and invoicing. As „the brains“ behind every project, he is 100 % solutions-orientated with the unambiguous motto „the show must go on!“ He is also authorised to manage apprentices and to contract out his employees.
The first job of this qualified communications engineer and committed perfectionist was leading the security team for a Michael Jackson concert. That was in 1997. After working as security chief (Vienna Stadthalle, Libro Halle) and tour promoter for the Raiffeisen Club, Ö3 and AK, Stefan became HR manager and director of Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) for BKR Eventconsulting GmbH. By mid 2002, he had set up Vienna Event Crew. Highlights in these early years were: „West Side Story“, FIFA Euro Mania und UEFA Euro 2008.
In 2007, Vienna Event Crew launched the opening of their Klagenfurt base (with Herbert Grönemeyer playing at the stadium) and in 2009 the GmbH was launched with Sebastian Bacher. By 2013, Vienna Event Crew was going rock´n´roll with Roger Waters‘ „The Wall“ at the Vienna Stadium. Since then many events have followed, amongst others AC/DC at the Red-Bull-Ring in Spielfeld, Helene Fischer and OneDirection at the Vienna Stadium, along with numerous productions at the Stadthalle, Konzerthaus and the Museumsquartier.
