The managing director and owner of Milestones In Communication is considered THE specialist for crisis communication. Most cases are subject to strict confidentiality. The cases he is allowed to talk about include some of the most spectacular in Austrian business: Hypo Alpe Adria (bank, ministry of finance, procurator fiscal), Telekom scandal (DG Hannes Ametsreiter), “500 million SWAP” BAWAG vs. city of Linz (BAWAG), Asamer rescue/reorganization (company, reorganizers, owner family, board members). In addition, there are numerous cases of insolvency and restructuring support, representation during legal proceedings, etc. Werner Beninger knows the other side, knows journalism from 30 years of experience. For decades, he was among the country’s top investigative journalists: as chief reporter at “DiePresse” and “Oberösterreichische Nachrichten”, as managing editor at NEWS magazine and department head at “Salzburger Nachrichten”. This is also what makes crisis communication by Milestones so successful.
