Contributing the „critical view of a career changer“, Markus Dressnandt, trained hotel manager, is enriching EuroNatur’s work since 2008. In his first years, he worked as an assistant to the executive director. Since 2015, Markus Dressnandt is heading the online fundraising section, full-heartedly working to increase the foundation’s presence in the online world. He develops strategies and concepts to make optimum use of the many opportunities of digital communication channels for the foundation’s work, in particular focusing on social media. His field of responsibility also includes coordinating technical issues and, together with Marco Panista, overseeing EuroNatur’s internal IT.

Grown up in Braşov/Kronstadt, Romania, where “bears roam the gardens”, nature has been a central element throughout his life. In his own words: “EuroNatur’s motto ‘Connecting nature and people’ is the best motto I can think of. I enjoy every day working within this strong international network and contributing my share to preserving nature and environment, including for future generations.”
