Our team in Copenhagen

Servicecenter Team
  • Cosima Steiner
    Commercial Counsellor

Cosima was born and raised in Vienna, but has spent most of her working life outside of Austria. Her postings in Toronto, Warsaw and London saw her promoting Austrian companies and their products and services in places ranging from the Rocky Mountains to the Masurian Lakes and the Scottish Highlands.

After a stint at ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA’s HQ, where she was responsible for implementing the SURPRISINGLY INGENIOUS branding strategy, Cosima has been happily Copenhagenized (bicycle and basket included) since her start at ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Copenhagen in July 2014.

Cosima holds a Master’s Degree in Social and Economic Sciences from the University of Vienna and a Master of Science Degree in Renewable Energies from the Vienna University of Technology.

She has a passion for sports and the outdoors and is an enthusiastic rock climber, who - in lack of “real rock” possibilities nearby - regularly enjoys “climbing on plastic” in one of Copenhagen’s indoor climbing gyms.
  • Anne Panjwani
    Project Manager - market field research

Anne was born in Copenhagen, but has spent most of her life living and working abroad, in Germany, France and Italy. This has allowed her to become fluent in five languages and be able to understand and interact with different cultures.

Before joining the ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Team, she worked in the Italian health care sector for a private company, where her role encompassed management strategies, administration and marketing. 

Anne loves the Danish sea and nature at all times of year, but when the weather is too bad, she is often to be found at the theatre or at concerts. She also enjoys doing Pilates, travelling and spending quality time with family and friends in Copenhagen and across the world.

The period has now lasted for the last many years and Christoph loves Danish hygge and lifestyle.
