“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag

Karen Gilsdorf Account Director

After graduating from commercial college, Karen spent a year abroad as an au pair in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. After returning to Germany, in 1992 she started an apprenticeship at Gerlach Touristik GmbH – a travel agency where Karen also worked as Office Manager later on. From 1997 to 2001, she was able to expand her skills as Product Management Assistant, Sales Operator and Trainer at LTU Touristik GmbH in Munich. Since 2001, Karen has been part of the Wiechmann Team and looks back on many years of tourism experience. She started as Account Manager and is now the Account Director for New Orleans and Louisiana and Visit Dallas and Visit Fort Worth. Karen enjoys the diversity of working with clients and partners thanks to her great passion for the United States. Apart from her job, Karen likes to spend time with her family. Her hobbies include swimming, biking, and baking – although the last one is not only appreciated by her family. Phone: +49 (0) 69 25538 270 | Email:
