Meet Fabian Kriete, a 29-year-old Bremen local with a compelling journey. He navigated the canals of European Studies in Amsterdam, pedaled through the streets of Berlin with a bike leasing company, and capped it off with a Master’s adventure in Göttingen and Bilbao. (Fun fact: In his time in Amsterdam he worked as a host for the Hard Rock Café)
For the past 2.5 years, Fabian has been the driving force behind a labor-market project at SüdniedersachsenStiftung and served as a project consultant for a labor union institute. In this role, he provided guidance to workers’ councils and SMEs on training and qualification amidst the transformation of Bremen’s automotive industry. In December 2023 he started working for his hometown, the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, as a Project Manager for EU-Projects in Shared Mobility and E-Carsharing. When he’s not immersed in work, you’ll find him on the football pitch or exploring Europe. His favorite Rock Song: Be Yourself – Audioslave
