The GDI Podcast: LOVOO’s New CEO on First Few Months and Future Goals!

LOVOO is The Meet Group’s leading subsidiary in Europe and, like the rest of the portfolio, offers members a hybrid dating and live streaming experience.

The company reinvigorated its executive committee in November, after co-founders Florian Braunschweig and Tobias Börner stepped down from their positions to pursue new challenges. 

Anna Maria Wanninger was promoted to CEO and now leads a more youthful board with a large focus on developing for the future. She spent the two years prior in community management roles so already has a deep understanding of what LOVOO users want.

Throughout the pandemic the activity on live streaming broadcasts and games has continued to increase. They have proved to be vital tools for people to maintain contact and start new romantic relationships and friendships.

Anna came on the show to discuss her first few months in the role, how the industry can improve gender diversity, and last year’s creation of the new ParshipMeetGroup.
