We are communication professionals with passion. We stem from the Keystone-SDA subsidiary PPR Media Relations. We are independent, dynamic and flexible. We are Karin, Sebastian, Natalie, Anna, Nicole and Katrin. WeArePepper.
Karin is cool as a cucumber and can do just about anything - except numbers and dates. As tribal elder, she keeps the wild crowd happy. #agencymom. Work-life balance was laid in Karin's cradle. Her customers like her straightforward and open manner, her employees her uncomplicated and open nature. If the coffee machine is in a different place again, everyone knows who did it. Karin doesn't like routine and patterns. Breaking them up and trying out new things is probably the secret of why she still enjoys her work so much, even after so many years.
Sebastian is a true multi-talent - as a managing director with a background in business administration, he reliably takes care of numbers and strategy, as a passionate photographer, he is the expert for visual communication, and as a handyman-by-mistake, he is skilled with hammer and nail. At first glance, he could be from Zurich, but as soon as he speaks, he can no longer hide the fact that he comes from the deepest eastern part of Switzerland. So it is also clear why he pronounces every word with an o at the end. Also in his free time Sebi is an all-rounder: ukulele, guitar, tennis, bike, documentary and series junkie, cryptocurrencies... #howmanyhobbiescanonehave
Natalie has the ability to learn everything about you in a very short time without you even noticing. That's probably why she's so popular with our clients as a senior consultant - because work isn't just work, but also people and relationships behind it #relationspro. But beware: Natalie can also let her Southern German roots do the talking and negotiate tough as nails. In 2021, Natalie took on her biggest and most beautiful project to date - it's small, cute and makes her lose sleep over and over again.
Nicole has many talents - one of which is staging coffee stains on her sweaters so that they don't stand out. As a digital native, she moves skillfully between Instagram, TikTok and LinkedIn. #socialmediaqueen. With paper and pen, on the other hand, she is fairly overwhelmed. The experiences from her former life in the travel industry paired with her current marketing studies make her the unbeatable secret weapon of the agency. Nicole is three O's: open, organized and oozing enthusiasm.
Wären wir eine Autogarage, wäre Katrin unsere Chefmechanikerin. Sie lebt ganz nach dem Motto #gehtnichtgibtsnicht und scheut vor keiner kreativen Herausforderung zurück. In ihrem Werkzeugkoffer befinden sich trotz jungen Jahren schon einige Tools und Erfahrungswerte aus Marketing & Kommunikation. Diese machen sie zur echten Allrounderin. Und wenn es doch einmal nicht so läuft, wie sie möchte, hilft ihr ihre offene und wissbegierige Art stets weiter. Kannst du Katrin grad nicht finden, streichelt sie wahrscheinlich einen vorbeigelaufenen Hund oder repariert etwas, das sie aus Versehen kaputt gemacht hat. Als Teil der GenZ ist Katrin mit Social Media aufgewachsen und kennt die aktuellsten Trends, Hypes und Flops – ausgenommen Facebook, dafür fühlt sie sich noch zu jung.
