Infront has announced that Stefan Krauss, its managing director in Austria and vice president of winter sports, will leave after more than a decade with the international sports marketing agency.

Krauss, who spent 12 years with the company, will end his long tenure at Infront at the end of April to pursue a new career as an independent consultant and “embrace a new professional challenge outside a corporate set-up.”

Hansjörg Jeserznik, currently senior director and member of the Infront Austria management, will take over from Krauss as managing director.

Julien Ternisien, Infront’s senior vice president of summer sports, will assume responsibility for the group’s winter sports portfolio in addition to his existing duties and continue to report to Bruno Marty, senior vice president of Infront’s ProSports unit.

In his new role, Jeserznik will oversee Infront Austria’s general management, business development, and rights-in management and will report to Ternisien.

Krauss initially joined the agency in January 2012, then took over as vice president of winter sports in October 2019.

Marty said: “Hansjörg is an ideal fit as a successor at Infront Austria. He contributes almost a decade of legal, commercial, and rightsholder relationship experience, a most diversified knowledge including an extensive network of contacts to our business and to our partners in winter sports.

“He is a valued member of our senior leadership team who will provide further impetus for our business out of Salzburg and ensure the continuity of our operations at Infront Austria.”

Jeserznik added: “I am very excited to take the lead for the next phase of Infront Austria’s growth, further developing its portfolio of national association partners and international federations and driving various business opportunities across the ever-transforming sports market.”
