Miriam obtained two degrees in Psychology, in the UK and Austria, and then entered the world of Human Resources. She worked for the internationally renowned, publicly traded DO & CO Aktiengesellschaft for 9 years. After working in Vienna for 2 years, she was asked to move to New York for a project and immediately fell in love with the city that never sleeps. Miriam initially thought she would be there for a few months but ended up staying 7 years. As DO & CO’s International Human Resources Manager (US) she helped build and expand companies in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Miriam was a crucial contributor to the Austrian company’s growth in the US, from 200 to 1100 employees in only a few years. She was part of the startup team, on the ground from the beginning, repeatedly building something new. Her roll-up-sleeve attitude, empathy and passion for creating HR structures make her a true business partner who can work with cross-functional teams.
After taking some time off to travel the US and Asia, she moved back to Vienna and joined Speedinvest’s team.
