About Us

Waldburg PR is a Munich-based integrated communications boutique, which specializes in luxury brands. We know from experience that a brand’s or product‘s „story“ can only be credibly conveyed on an ongoing basis via a made-to-measure communications concept which reaches far beyond the borders of the classic PR spectrum. 

Our mission statement enforces our key values of servicing our clients in a personal, authentic and friendly manner, with full committment and sense of responsibility. Only by fully understanding what makes a brand and the people behind it tick, can we strategically plan and creatively implement custom-made solutions.

It is our goal to constantly keep our fingers on the pulse of the latest trends and challenges in and around the global travel and luxury markets, which enables us to always prepare for change and adapt in time. 

We believe that our success is not entirely due to our expertise but also because we are passionate about our jobs, our clients and their stories, which we love to tell!

Thera Richardt

Thera loves Grand Hotels and their stories. Her favourite is to explore all rooms, from the suite to the furniture storage. As soon as she comes across a long-standing employee of a hotel she will inquisitively ask for occurrences and anecdotes that portray the true character of the property.

She studied history of art in Vienna and Lausanne and has worked for international art galleries. She then further developed her art expertise through an MBA in Paris. Today she leverages her high-profile access to the art world in order to generate operational synergies and profitable cooperations.
 
With her distinctive sense for Social Media trends, an inherent ability to spot the most meaningful pictures, paired with an irrepressible sense of humour, Thera always manages to portray our clients in the best possible light.  


Kika Mantzouridou

Kika is our true PR charmer!  

With over 20 years of experience in media and PR, Kika is not only highly knowledgeable but also unrivalled in terms diplomacy and structure. Furthermore she has a great talent of being able to abduct her dialogue partners into our paradisiacal travel destinations. Born in Greece, she often misses the sun in Munich – she is therefore over the moon when she can escape the winter months.

Clients benefit from a wealth of knowledge that spans from fashion, beauty and lifestyle topics. Kika is always in balance. Is yoga the secret to her positive aura or simply her relaxed attitude to life? Doesn’t matter! Waldburg PR is thrilled to have Kika in its team!
