Grand Hall News

Rarely seen at his desk: Daniel Kölle, the technical manager of the Grand Hall.
The native of Paderborn, for friends and colleagues simply "Kölle", comes to over 30 years of professional experience in the event industry. Among other things, as a stage builder, stage manager, fire protection officer and safety expert.
Working on the weekend? Perfectly fine.
He feels at home in the Grand Hall because here he can demonstrate all his skills in one place. This starts with initial discussions with corporate customers when it comes to space planning and extends to the implementation of sustainability measures. He is often on duty at weekends as well. Perfectly okay for the 57-year-old. "That way I also have time off during the week," says the father of three, who in his private life makes music with his band Pottgod (recently named "the best band in the West" by WDR2) or works in the allotment garden. "An office job, Monday to Friday, Nine to Five, no, that wouldn't be for me." Sitting at a desk for long periods of time is not something you'll find him doing anyway.
If you want to talk to him, it's best to look first in the hall, on the grounds or in the adjacent switch house - where he is monitoring preparations for the next event or even the modernization work that is currently underway. Which brings us back to the light bulb. Of course, the all-rounder has found the right LEDs - at a company in Rhineland-Palatinate. The light sources fit in wonderfully - and also save 75% energy.
