CEO echo in February 2022: 17% more mentions of DAX and MDAX managers

Overall, 65% of CEO Echo was generated by online editorial content, while social media accounted for 35%. Overall, CEO Echo content activated its readers 181% more frequently in February than before.

Footprint: Herbert Diess (Volkswagen) dominates 17% of total CEO echo

What share of the total CEO echo does a DAX/MDAX boss have, whether voluntarily or involuntarily? This question is answered by the CEO footprint.

In February, Herbert Diess (Volkswagen) received the most media attention. He had a share of voice of 17% and thus the largest footprint of all board members. In second and third place this month are Dr. Mathias Döpfner (Springer) with 13% and Ola Källenius (Daimler AG) with 8% share of all mentions.

61% of Diess's echo did not take place in a financial context and was therefore more suitable than average for setting topics and content. 57% of the Volkswagen CEO's echo came from editorial media, 43% from social media.

Content that mentioned Diess generated 42 interactions per mention. This corresponds to very strong reader activation (30th place among all CEOs).

Overall, Herbert Diess ' content mentions showed a very strong coloration with a tonality that was more often positive than negative.

A corresponding image effect can be assumed.

Communication Excellence: Airbus best sets content in editorial departments with Guillaume Faury

Good media relations aims to set topics and build reputation. This is best achieved through placement in articles that are not financial news and are published by editorial media. Our indicator bot shows which DAX/MDAX companies succeed in this with the ranking for Communication Excellence.

Social Excellence: Dr. Mathias Döpfner (Springer) with the best social media echo

"Social is not an end in itself. But if you want to have an impact on opinion leaders outside editorial departments (influencers) or on consumers and digital elites who are not easily reached by the mass media, you have to be mentioned as often and as effectively as possible in social media. The Social Excellence Index answers whether this is successful. Our indicator bot interprets the proportion of mentions in social media, the strength of reader activation, and their emotional impact.

Last month, Dr. Mathias Döpfner (Springer) leads the ranking with 2.9 points.

Döpfner 's response was 79% "social," his reader activation rather average with 7 reactions to a mention; the sentiment of his mentions was 20% positive. He was thus well ahead of runner-up Björn Gulden (Puma) with 1.8 points and Werner Baumann (Bayer) in third place with 1.4 points.

Responsibility Excellence: Carsten Spohr (Lufthansa) with best response on social responsibility

The .companion indicator bot also determines whether DAX/MDAX CEOs appear in the digital media echo as leaders in the context of the UN's sustainable development goals, i.e., in the context of social responsibility or climate and environmental protection, for example. Our Responsibility Index shows how well this has been achieved. For it, the indicator bot interprets only the mentions that took place in this topic context.

In February, Carsten Spohr (Lufthansa) saluted us from first place in the responsibility ranking.
