Zurich, 19 April 2016 – Michael Brecht will resign as CEO of Doodle during the summer of 2016. He will continue to be a leader and investor in the digital sector outside of Tamedia.

Michael Brecht successfully fuelled the international growth of the platform, and today, approximately 26 million people worldwide are using the online scheduling tool. Doodle is currently used in a total of 175 countries and is available in 22 languages, making it an international brand. In 2015, the use of Doodle on mobile devices increased dramatically, and Michael Brecht also assembled a team in Berlin to further accelerate Doodle’s international growth.
