akg-images, the rights-managed photo archive specializing in history, fine art and vintage photography, will see a change of directorship at its London office on 15th March 2017. Current Managing Director Angelika Pirkl, who has been with the company for over eight years, will be leaving akg-images to pursue a career in freelance picture research. Owner Friedrich Göpel says: “We thank Angelika for her passion and dedication and wish her the best of luck in her freelance endeavours”. Angelika’s successor –already a familiar face in the industry- has been appointed, and a formal announcement will follow shortly.
