Innovating in the Automotive Industry — with Max Tolsdorff, Head of Marketing at Polestar Off the Record – Conversations on the Creative Landscape

    • Marketing

Max Tolsdorff is the head of marketing at Polestar Germany. However, marketing was not his first choice when stepping into the career world. Having initially started an apprenticeship at the German Sparkasse, he soon realised that the lack of creativity was not for him. With this, he braved the jump to Innsbruck where he could combine his passion for mountain sports with studying Business Economics. Through his studies and the advancement of creative thinking, Max was interested in a career where he could combine the business side with creative solutions. Having worked with the consumer activation marketing department for Red Bull in Austria and California, Max's creative side was still not fulfilled. This led him to apply for the automotive brand, Polestar without any prior experiences in the automobile industry.
