Leadership change in the family business

Whilst still at school, Cornelia Schmid helps out at KD SCHMID, selling records during the Christmas season in the record shop of the Klavierhaus Döll. Having studied in Bonn and Harvard, she finally joins her father's company in 1986. Her first artist is Håkan Hardenberger. Eight years later, in 1994, she takes over the management of the company. Today, KD SCHMID is run by both Cornelia Schmid and Karen McDonald.
