The Story of TLGG USA
From Flight Attendant to Intrapraneur
TLGG USA, a subsidiary of Berlin-based TLGG Group led by CEO Christoph Bornschein, was founded and is managed by Katrin Zimmermann.
After a 15 year career Lufthansa, starting as a flight attendant and spanning to executive assistant to the CHRO, Katrin co-founded Lufthansa’s Innovation Hub, making her one of the first intrapreneurs of her generation.
TLGG USA is Born
As Lufthansa’s Director of Business Innovation, Katrin worked with TLGG in Germany to bring their first digital ventures to life.
At the same time Christoph and his co-founders sold TLGG to Omnicom in light of the continued consolidation of marketing and consulting services.
Based on a successful collaboration at Lufthansa, the pair joined forces at TLGG and Katrin headed to the Big Apple to launch TLGG USA.
The rest, as they say, is history..
