What has been said about us

TUTAKA Island team

Who we are

Alexandra Herget 

Creative Lead, Marketing & Guest Experience
alexandra@tutaka.com | Alexandra's LinkedIn

Alexandra developed hospitality concepts before founding TUTAKA in the beginning of 2018 after being frustrated seeing the amount of things that are thrown away every day in a hotel. Studying Interactive Art Direction at HYPER ISLAND, Graphic Design at M.DH and getting a M. Sc. in Strategy & Innovation helped along the way. Her time at The Ritz Carlton, hospitality competence and the Hotelmarketing Gruppe as well. She is mad for unusual ideas, boldness, ecoistic people, typography and Scandinavian design. 

Franziska Altenrath

Business Development and R&D
franziska@tutaka.com | Franziska's LinkedIn

Franziska gained various insights into the problems and effects of unsustainable consumption patterns from different industries such as automotive, real estate and fashion. Being a true materialist herself, excited about design, materials and production, she searched for ways to challenge the status quo. She decided that it is time to reach to the roots of sustainability concepts and went back to University to study Ethics, Politics and Economics at LMU in Munich. Here she dedicated her thesis to "Sustainability and Humanitarianism in Tourism" and started the TUTAKA journey. 

Charlotte Opatz

Junior Sustainable Transformation Consultant
charlotte@tutaka.com | Charlotte's LinkedIn

As a child, Charlotte dreamed of becoming an explorer. Years later, she followed her enthusiasm for environmental processes and the preservation of its diversity with a degree in environmental sciences. With an M.Sc. in Sustainable Business and Innovation from the University of Utrecht, she further deepened her knowledge. Charlotte learned about the difficulties of in-house sustainability strategies during her residencies at the Swiss Barry Callebaut AG and the Dutch sustainability consultancy inclsve. At TUTAKA, Charlotte accompanies hosts on their way towards creating more ecoistic guest experiences and sustainable transformation. She screens suppliers on TUTAKA's thorough sustainability criteria and occasionally whips out her pen to share knowledge and innovation.

Pauline Dittmeyer

Marketing and Sales Manager
pauline@tutaka.com | Pauline's LinkedIn

The topic of sustainability has been of great interest to Pauline for a long time. With a background in marketing and a M.Sc. in Digital Project Management, she now combines her collective expertise and passion for sustainability and digital products at TUTAKA. Pauline is the contact person for sustainable suppliers and eco-friendly hosts and ensures that all processes run smoothly.

Jana Hemmer

Assistent to the management
jana@tutaka.com | Jana's LinkedIn

Jana started her journey on TUTAKA island with an internship in line with her studies “Tourism and Management”. This way she combined two of her passions - sustainability and hospitality! During her internship she focused on the fields marketing, communication and business development. For TUTAKA Jana was an instant match-made-in heaven, so it was no surprise that she keeps supporting the team as a student trainee. Marketplace development, creative content production and sustainability research are part of her tasks to drive forward our mission, a more ecoistic hospitality industry.
