Marie Muhr


Marie has gained profound hands-on experience in building things from the ground up. Not only has she led teams of Communication, Digital Marketing and Customer Care at the major player Samsung Electronics Austria, but also has she worked as Managing Director for independent candidate Irmgard Griss in the Austrian Presidential Electoral Campaign. Within only 1,5 months, Marie co-built a functioning electoral campaign from the scratch, based on a concisely developed campaign strategy and election program. The campaign secured 3rd place for Irmgard Griss in the election ballot with 18,9% of the votes.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

Accomplishing ambitious goals was nothing new to Marie, who, during her time at Samsung Electronics Austria, supervised the development of the app “Power Sleep” which was nominated for a Cannes Lion. The app’s objective was to use a phone’s processing power to perform scientific research during sleep. As Head of Operations, at Speedinvest, Marie oversees innovative international projects and is eager to drive forward promising ideas and potential. Marie strongly cares about sustainable development and environmental awareness, and thus decided to pursue an additional academic career in Environment and Bio-Resources Management. In her personal life, she is passionate about sports such as yoga and TRX, and cultivates a vested interest in arts. Half Austrian and half French, Marie loves travelling and has so far lived in Paris, Düsseldorf, and Zurich.
