Nils Koerber
Managing Director Ringier South Africa

Nils Körber: a German by birth, Swedish at heart, South African by choice, and a true citizen of the Internet. His love for computers and the web dates back to his 9th birthday when he received his first computer, a C64. Since then, he has been fascinated by technology, and the sound of the dial-up tone from a 14.4k modem caught his heart.

Nils spent years working as an IT consultant for blue-chip companies across Europe. But he later decided to trade in his suit and tie for the bustling world of startups in beautiful Africa. He has had the opportunity to work in different tech positions for some of the continent's now biggest digital companies.

Since 2020, Nils has been serving as the Managing Director of Ringier's tech hub in Africa.
