Timotheus Wiesmann is managing director of the Hamburg Music Business Association (IHM) – the network of Hamburg’s music business. IHM is Germany’s first and Europe’s largest regional music trade association.

After completing his university degree in cultural and media studies in Düsseldorf and Nantes/France, working in Cardiff/Wales, and doing a master’s degree in cultural and media management in Hamburg, Timotheus worked for music and cultural festivals (including düsseldorf festival!), for the KMM-Institute in Hamburg, and for the digital distributor finetunes. He also freelanced as a cultural manager, events manager, and as a writer. In addition to working at IHM (where he’s been since 2010), he runs Aalhaus, a bar and live music club in Hamburg, where he’s also responsible for booking artists and overseeing the programme.
