A trained book-seller / publisher, starting right after the fall of the iron curtain, his first music company in Poland (Edition Schubert), grew to become one of the largest distributors and a very successful local label.
After selling the company to Koch International, Andreas became responsible for all of their Central and Eastern European (CEE) operations.
In 2003 Andreas established the new Schubert Music Publishing company, which quickly became the leading music publisher in CEE, to be followed by the opening of local branches in most Western European territories and the USA.
Investing in other music services besides publishing – like promotion, management and labels – Andreas always took care of keeping the company truly independent. Therefore Schubert Music Europe and all related companies are exclusively owned by Andreas and the leading co-workers of the company.
