Verena is a huge foodie and avid home cook, craft beer and wine lover and therefore, being in charge of food & beverage at Advantage Austria was somewhat meant to be. Aside from that, she is also in charge of interior design and creative industries – areas which go hand in hand with the culinary field.

Her studies and previous jobs have allowed her to spend time in Spain, China, Saudi Arabia and eventually brought her to New York, where she´s lived for the past ten years.

 She graduated from the University of Vienna with a degree in communications, development studies and anthropology. Whenever she cannot travel the world, she likes to bring various country´s dishes to the table.
