Wolfgang Eltner

Wolfgang Eltner

His decades of experience in the tourism sector (e.g. as CEO of Styria Tourism) and his innate entrepreneurial spirit, prompted Wolfgang to take the step into self-employment at the beginning of this millennium. He founded ems with the ulterior motive to ​​establish a company dedicated to the implementation of sustainable tourism and mobility projects. A sure instinct and a practical view on project goals are not only an advantage in his management style, but also essential in long-term customer relationships. When he’s not in the office, the sporty Styrian can be found either on the golf course or on a sailing boat, somewhere between the islands of the Croatian coast. Wolfgang likes to emphasize that sailing thrives on the idea of ​​moving in harmony with nature, in contrast to overcoming nature with a motorboat. Sounds slightly philosophical, but reflects Wolfgang’s down-to-earth attitude, who is also a Qigong teacher.

Marco Eltner

Marco Eltner, BA

While studying communication sciences in Vienna, he already worked full-time in his father’s company. Today, Marco is the general manager and is responsible for promotions and events, but also works on energy projects when time permits. Marco laid the foundations for his entrepreneurial activities in his school days, even though he may not have suspected it at the time. The trigger was his great passion: music. As a teenager, he founded a band, marketed it and organized concerts during the holidays. If one had to describe Marco Eltner in just one sentence, it would perhaps be this: A gourmand and wine fan with an Italian soul, who values fashion and style and regularly walks or climbs mountains to keep fit. Marco finds relaxation either in Tuscany or while sailing in the Adriatic, preferably with his wife and dog Maider.

Mag. Christian Grünwald

“The best thing about my job is a proper mix of hiking shoes and a Macbook,” says the Carinthian, who is responsible for touristic stagings at ems and is therefore allowed to spend many working hours outdoors. He is always aiming for the best possible experience for existing and potential guest and also ensures that nobody gets lost. In this process it is particularly important to him to consider how the product can be implemented digitally. In his private life, the geographer and environmental systems scientist and his family have found a new home in Graz, that he has become very fond of. This fact be deliberately pushed aside for 3 times 20 minutes when it comes to the ice hockey derby in Graz. After all, you are a KAC fan for a lifetime. Any other time resource is spent with the family. If there is still time, King Football actively and passively rules – whereby the emphasis increasingly shifts towards the couch and television.

Ulrike Spreitzer

Ulrike Spreitzer, MSc

For Ulrike, sustainability is not just an empty phrase, but an attitude towards life. This is also reflected in her mobility behavior – she cycles from Andritz to the office every day, regardless of the weather conditions. The environmental systems scientist already focused on the topic of mobility in her master’s thesis. At ems, she can not only apply this valuable knowledge practically to tourism and regional development projects, but also enriches the team with her sunny nature. In her free time, she either enjoys relaxing in pleasantly warm thermal water or prefers to go skiing or hiking in the alps. However, if there is a ski race at the weekend, the ski or hiking shoes can also be put aside. When it comes to vacation, the native Styrian loves trips to the far north or to Austria’s mountains.

Helmut Richter-Koleznik

Helmut Richter-Koleznik, MA MSc

Originally from mountainous Upper Styria, the enthusiastic hiking traveler was already drawn to Graz in his early years. The geographer started his academic training after completing an apprenticeship and has now joined ems a few years and two master’s programs later. Here he is mainly concerned with regional development and tourism projects, their thematic conception and implementation. The development of creative themed and adventure paths is not only his focus in the office, he also likes to walk them himself when he is on the road again, mainly in warmer regions of the globe. The married landscape photographer and football fan can be found wherever the earth or english football shows its most beautiful side. At home, at the foot of the Plabutsch, gardening is his greatest passion.

Born in Graz, Martin finished his bachelor’s degree in geography at the University of Vienna in 2015 and has been with ems since 2016. His competence encompasses the conception, implementation of hiking, cycling and tourism concepts. Before that, he did internships in national parks and nature conservation organizations. Martin is still on educational leave until spring 2020 to complete his master’s degree in social ecology at BOKU Vienna. The topic of his master’s thesis fits his previous professional career and deals with sustainable cycling tourism. Sustainability is firmly anchored in the life of the former orienteer – from nutrition to mobility. His private interests are varied; the passionate photographer likes to try new things, which is why a short extract of his diverse hobbies follows here: climbing, standard dances, archery, hiking, riding racing bikes and cross-country skiing and ice skating in winter.

Sonja Kamp

Sonja Kamp

As an external employee, talented organizer Sonja has been responsible for accounting at ems since 2010 and also ensures, among other things that travel expenses and diets are paid on time. Which, of course all employees really appreciate! You can meet the art-enthusiastic clerk in Graz, either in a coffee house, in a theater or in a cinema. Hiking and cross-country skiing come natural to the native Ennstalerin and when time permits, sewing is one of her greatest hobbies which allows her to relax and unwind. In addition to her work at ems and in her husband’s office, Sonja has been a dedicated landlord on an internet platform for 12 years. Countless interesting contacts from all over the world have been established over this time. If she allows herself a break from everyday office life, then preferably at the North Sea, in the rough but beautiful Region of Friesland.

Bürohund Maider

Maider

Since the future prospects for some dogs in animal shelters of southern Spain are not really pleasant, Marco Eltner took her to Styria in 2014. Since then she hasn’t left his side, not even in the ems office, unless one of the other employees has a fish-flavored treat for her. You don’t notice her fiery, Mediterranean temperament, at least her trusting look suggests that she is happy and satisfied with us. Maider is also a loyal companion for Marco and his wife in their leisure time, either active in the Upper Styrian nature or getting cozy by the sea. Her hobbies also include: being attentive, sleeping, being petted and chasing her own hind legs.
