Founder of CommsART
Nadine Bütow completed a degree in Media Business Administration following an apprenticeship in the hospitality industry. In 2005, she started her career at Brunswick Group, an international strategic consultancy for business critital communications where she established the office in Berlin. Since then, she held various consultant positions and served a broad spectrum of communications disciplines as well as numerous industries. Among them were TMT, Pharma & Health, Aviation & Space, Transport & Logistics as well as international clients from other industries.
During her time at Brunswick she specialised in Positioning, Crisis & Reputation Management, Digital & Online Communications as well as Leadership & Change Communications. She accompanied several M&As and, as a member of the international core digital team, was co-driving the firm's business development activities in the fields of digital and social media. As the regulatory pressure on companies increased, Public Affairs as a way of political communication played a significant role in her work, too.
Early on Nadine Bütow was fascinated by the powers of renewables and innovations that emerged in the light of the nuclear phase-out and related ambitious environmental objectives of the German Federal Government. As a results, emobility and renewable energy have been a driving compulsion to become the co-founder of Easy Ride in 2014. The Berlin tech and emobility start-up was set to become the first free-floating electric scooter sharing service in Europe. The lack of a subsequent seed financing led to its abandonment. The passion for the topics has remained.
In 2015, she founded CommsART, a strategic communications network aiming at helping individuals and businesses to cope with the dramatic paradigm shift the digitalization brings to enterprises, the work life, communication pattern and leadership skills.
