„He has to justify himself, not me. He hasn’t cared about me for three years. I haven’t set foot in my own company for three years.“ This quote begins the impressive cover story about S.Oliver owner Bernd Freier. Impressive because it is filled with rich background information and compelling anecdotes about and from an entrepreneur who seems unable to let go. Impressive because the story shows the persistent and thorough research.

Sarah Speicher-Utsch, editor in the economics department of TextilWirtschaft, and Hagen Seidel, chief correspondent of TextilWirtschaft, were able to convince the Quality Makers‘ Jury in the category of dfv Journalist of the Year 2023. „The article is the result of research that only journalists who are extremely well-connected in the industry and have profound market knowledge can conduct,“ the jury stated. „Remarkably, the editors managed to obtain meaningful statements from many involved individuals and shed light on the events from various perspectives.“ However, the article is not influenced by opinions but clearly states the facts.
