Staff at Liqui Moly were deeply shocked by the sudden disappearance of its overseas public relations manager, Peter Szarafinski.
Shortly before Christmas, news of the sudden death of Peter Szarafinski (47), head of foreign public relations, shocked Liqui Moly employees. “Terrible news that reached us just before Christmas Eve. Unbelievable and a great loss for a valued and highly regarded colleague,” says Managing Director Günter Hiermaier.
At the beginning of 2010, the former journalist took over the new position of head of international public relations at the Liqui Moly headquarters in Ulm. “Over the past 13 years, Peter Szarafinski has done an excellent job of developing public relations in our foreign markets,” said Günter Hiermaier. “With his knowledge, diligence and high work ethic, he has played a decisive role in the positive impact of our company. His sudden death is a great loss also because he was a very nice and appreciated colleague”.
After graduating from high school in Füssen, Peter Szarafinski worked as an apprentice editor at the Allgäuer Zeitung before choosing to study journalism and history at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. Later he started working in the communication sector of the Beiersdorf Group. Parallel to his work at Liqui Moly, he obtained his doctorate with the historiographical book “Rüstung und politisches System” (Armaments and the political system).
In addition to his interest in history, he has been an avid sailor and paraglider. In 2016 he flew from the Allgäu to the North Cape and back with a partner from the Füssen flying club.
Günter Hiermaier: “Our thoughts go out to his family and his partner.”
