Petra Graef
Management/Owner and Recruitment Consultant

muenchen@designerdock.com

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

muenchen@designerdock.com

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.

Irina Sirakova
Recruitment Consultant for Interactive and Digital

muenchen@designerdock.com

Irina is our expert for digital professionals recruiting. A woman of multi-lingual and multi-national background she knows how to find the best of the best, inside and outside Germany. Having worked and lived in five different countries she has learned to speak 5 languages fluently. Following her touch down in Germany she studied communication design in the town of Darmstadt and made her first digital steps at the online portal t-online. After a few stopovers at Mediaman and Leo Burnett Irina finally moved to Munich in 2010. There she started as Art Director Online and stayed at Webguerillas for as many as 7 years. She finally settled her restless soul when marrying a handsome man. After having two even more handsome girls and buying an apartment she luckily discovered her passion for talent recruitment. Her experience and open-minded character help her (and us!) to connect with top-digital-experts. We won’t let you go Irina!

Jelena Imamovic
Junior personnel consultant

muenchen@designerdock.com

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!
