What’s the (hi)story?

umlaut is a new brand. But we are not a new company.

We used to be part of P3. On a more than two-decade-long journey we grew from a handful of people into our thousands, spanned our wings from Germany across all territories and industries and enjoyed great success and growth together.

But to realise our full potential, we needed a change.

With umlaut, we have changed the quality of our own professional home. And found a special mark worthy of our mutual entrepreneurial and cultural vision for the future of a company of the many.

And a company of more: more togetherness, more collaboration, more inventiveness, more entrepreneurialism, more freedom, more shared ownership and more success.

We are 4,500 people all over the world. This is our board of directors.
