It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Kathrin Goepel on 18 December at the age of 62 following a long illness.

Kathrin ran akg-images successfully from the company headquarters in Berlin, Germany, since taking over in 1996 following the sudden death of her husband Justus.

Kathrin leaves behind three children, of whom the eldest, Friedrich Goepel, was appointed joint CEO of the company at the beginning of 2014. Everyone at akg-images will remember Kathrin’s kindness and warmth as well as the energy and imagination she brought to her role as CEO.
