The University of Luxembourg has announced the appointment of former Radio 100,7 station boss Jean-Paul Hoffmann as its new head of communications.
Hoffmann, who announced his decision to quit the public radio broadcaster at the end of September, previously served as vice-president of corporate communications at satellite operator SES. He succeeded former Radio 100,7 general manager Fernand Weides in 2013. Hoffmann had started his career as a journalist, and later managing editor, of weekly newspaper “Lëtzebuerger Land”.
The university says Hoffmann, who starts his new position on 15 December, will work on communications strategy and on developing its communications platforms and processes. “We are convinced that he will be an excellent addition to our team with his long-term experience and expertise in different fields of communication,” said Stéphane Pallage, University of Luxembourg rector.
