Our Management

Who is leading Joyn?

Here you can find more information about our managing directors and the Senior Leadership Team.


Even though each of them is responsible for a specific area, we have very flat hierarchies and everyone talks to everyone.

So don't hesitate to talk to any of them if you see them in the Joyn Café or anywhere nearby
