Wolfratshausen – At the end of July, Marlene Schretzenmaier announced that she was reorienting herself professionally and giving up the management of culture.
Her successor will be Andreas Kutter.
After the approval of the main and finance committee, Andreas Kutter introduced himself to the public in the town hall.
Kutter has been working for the city marketing department in the town hall since October 2019.
During his presentation, Mayor Klaus Heilinglechner especially appreciated his good networking with clubs and event organizers.
For example, together with the former culture manager Marlene Schretzenmaier, Kutter prepared the renowned river festival and the Wolfratshauser Wirtefest.
"In the city, the personnel carousel is currently turning a little faster," said Heilinglechner.
He is all the more pleased when vacancies are quickly filled.
Chosen from 40 applicants
A total of 40 external and one internal application were received after the public call for applications.
"The internal applicant has prevailed," announced the head of the town hall.
At his presentation, Kutter thanked his former colleague for the preparatory work.
"It was fun and I want to carry on the fun," he emphasized.
The Kutter, who grew up in Buchloe, almost became a teacher for English and history after his state examination.
"I even worked as a trainee teacher for seven months, but then I realized that I wanted to take a different path," he reveals.
Andreas Kutter studied "Leisure and Tourism Management" in Stralsund - an international course in the field of leisure and tourism management.
The 38-year-old then worked for a PR agency in Ottobrunn near Munich and organized poetry slams and concerts.
In his spare time, Kutter still likes to play in rock, jazz, pop and funk bands.
While he is considered an advanced musician on the piano, there is still room for improvement on the trombone.
The culture manager, who lives in the Giesing district of Munich, founded his current band “Olga & the magic tunes” together with a friend in Buchloe.
Events for young and old
Events for young and old are particularly important to Andreas Kutter - such as the well-attended family festival in the Loisachhalle on November 6th.
Of course, he also doesn't want to neglect large open-air areas such as the old raft landing or the Bergwaldbühne.
“These places are unique selling points that need to be maintained,” Kutter knows.
In cooperation with the culture officer of the city council Sepp Schwarzenbach, he now wants to establish new formats.
"I already have ideas," explained the new culture manager.
