The "Mexperts"

Mexperts was founded by Kurt Löffler in 1993. The company became a stock corporation (an Aktiengesellschaft, or “AG” under German law) in 2002 and implemented a corporate structure that includes financial participation of employees. Besides the core Mexperts team, the agency works together with a regular team of freelance specialists.

Since 1998, Rolf has been employing his connections to serve Mexperts clients.
