Petra Graef
Management/Owner and Recruitment Consultant

Petra studied art and languages whereupon she worked the agency industry all the way from the bottom to the top. Her client portfolio displays brands such as Rossignol, Lowa, Accor, Pierre Cardin and many more. A-t-L and b-t-L. 360°. Meanwhile she graduated in Communications (Management) and studied psychology. This was when she decided to start up DESIGNERDOCK Munich in early 2002 alongside her sister Barbara. Still located in the same quarters as back in the early days the office has grown from a small shoebox to a light filled and representative space. A small but important insight: When she needs a break, Petra does NOT visit the worlds deserts like her business partner sibling. Quite unlike her, she actually seeks the water rather than the sand.

Barbara Graef
Management/Owner and Recruitment Consultant

Barbara is our official office nomad. Whilst working in the first-class hotel sector, she moved to Berlin, Valetta, Munich and Frankfurt. Meanwhile working as a flight attendant Barbara visited pretty much every major city in the world. In the end though, she landed sound and safely in her home town Munich. This was when she started out as an account manager in a small advertising agency. A 2 year-evening course in advertising and marketing was to support her new career. After a lengthy stopover at a Munich recruitment agency, Barbara decided to start DESIGNERDOCK Munich with her sister in 2002. This was the best decision ever! Nowadays Barbara acts out her nomad habits by the principle of ‚reduction’: exclusively in the infinite Rub al Khali.

Jelena Imamovic
Junior personnel consultant

Jelena is the „long-distance“-girl at DESIGNERDOCK Munich. 16km along the Croatian coast - no problem for the former competitive swimmer. Jelena was able to go the distance with her studies as well. After studying psychology in Sarajevo she finished a second masters degree in business psychology in Munich. All the while she learned to speak German and worked at the "Lost & Found" at the Munich airport. Not the worst place to apply her psychology training! Since July 2018 Jelena has been working with us as a junior personnel consultant and we are sure she will last the distance with us as well!

Nicola Tekin
Personnel consultant for Account and Project Managers

Nicola grew up in Munich and has never really managed to leave the city. After a short excursion beyond the borders of Munich to study in Vienna, she rushed back to her roots and worked for almost 8 years at Achtung! in the account management department. There she looked after high-profile brands from diverse industries. To balance her office life she discovered a passion for gardening and since then spends as much time in her allotment garden, with husband and child, between the tomatoes and raspberries. 
We're overjoyed that Nicola has put her extensive agency experience at our disposal as a personal manager, and of course hope for the occasional Summer basket of "self-grown" fruit and vegetables!
