Karnebogen most recently served as head of communications at Deutsche Bahn (DB), but has also worked as an independent company and communications consultant. His countless media contacts will be used for press distribution. Together with PR consultant Rainer Schilling, Karnebogen intends to set up his own representative office in Wiesbaden.

He then founded the consulting and project development firm PANAMEDIA Communications GmbH. Together with NewVicom GmbH he has established a communications company that focuses on innovative visual products, contents and services.
