Valerie Höllinger, since 2011 CEO of the BFI Wien, studied law in Vienna and earned post-graduate degrees in business administration from the IMADEC University and the Paris-Lodron University.
In her position as CEO, she is responsible for all financial and strategic operations of the organisation, the private and corporate customer business as well as the management of the divisions new business, marketing, sales & PR, customer care and educational theory.
Since Höllinger is responsible for the BFI Wien, the organisation was greatly modernised – i.e. the divisions controlling, marketing & PR as well as corporate customer business where established or restructured. In the private and corporate customer business the BFI Wien’s revenue doubled within three years and the companies’ performance in all customer relevant properties improved significantly (i.e. the level of awareness increased by 20 percent points).
Before she joined the BFI Wien, Höllinger acquired international managerial experience as member of the management board at ANECON Software Design und Beratung GmbH, in the division Strategy & Business Development at Telekom Austria AG and as Head of Sales in the beverage industry.
Since 2014 Höllinger is a member of the supervisory board of the Staatsoper Wien GmbH. And since September 2015 she is Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Burgtheater GmbH, Staatsoper Wien GmbH, Volksoper Wien GmbH and ART for ART Theaterservice GmbH.
