Stefan Flessner, Sandra Schmitz.

Long before the start of Germany’s new cycling momentum, Stefan Flessner and Sandra Schmitz saw the need for a boutique agency that was small, effective, and highly specialized for the world of cycling. After years of handling various cycling projects for different firms, they founded FlessnerSchmitz. With their years of experience in the business, they offer senior level communication consulting — all focused on clients performing in a single sport and lifestyle: cycling.
