New Dean for the Agora Strategy Institute

  • Dr. Peter Ammon takes on the role of Dean of the Agora Strategy Institute

  • Dr. Harald Braun steps down as Dean - but remains Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Agora Strategy Group

The former diplomat and State Secretary at the Federal Foreign Office, Dr. Peter Ammon, took over the role of Dean of the Agora Strategy Group's in-house think tank - the Agora Strategy Institute - on February 1st, 2024.


"With Dr. Peter Ammon, the Agora Strategy Institute has a new leader with experience at the most important diplomatic levers in the West. A personality with a deep geopolitical understanding, who has an excellent command of the precise analysis of geopolitical and geo-economic contexts and their translation into information relevant to companies. I look forward to working with him in the future," says Dr. Elli-Katharina Pohlkamp, Director of the Agora Strategy Institute.


Today, Dr. Peter Ammon can look back on a long diplomatic career. He is a former German ambassador to the USA, France and Great Britain and was State Secretary at the Federal Foreign Office. He was also head of the planning staff in the Office of the Federal President and supported the German Chancellor during the G7/G8 negotiations.


"Knowledge of geopolitical contexts, upheavals and opportunities is currently more important for companies than ever before. The Agora Strategy Group and the Agora Strategy Institute act as transmission belts between geopolitical developments and business interests. I look forward to contributing my many years of diplomatic experience to this translation process and to providing new stimuli at the Agora Strategy Institute. I would also like to thank my predecessor Dr. Harald Braun for his commitment and look forward to working more closely with the entire Agora Strategy Group team," says Dr. Peter Ammon.


Dr. Peter Ammon succeeds Dr. Harald Braun, who has held this position since 2017. We would like to thank him for his commitment and the continuous development of the institute as an integral part of the Agora Strategy Service portfolio. Dr. Harald Braun will remain associated with the Agora Strategy Group as Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board.


With this change at the top of the Agora Strategy Institute, the adjustment of the corporate structure to the "Code of Conduct" updated in the previous year has now been completed.
