Ing. Mag. Karl Mahringer
I was born in 1953 in Wildalpen in Austria. After finishing an HTL (Higher Technical Education Institute), I graduated from the Vienna University of Economics and Business and further obtained additional education in project management, business consulting and oriental studies. Since 1976, I have been holding leading positions focusing on the conflict countries of Nigeria, Sudan, South Sudan, Iraq, Syria and Palestine. I have been living in Afghanistan since 2009, working as a senior consultant in the government circles and as a general manager. As of mid 2014, I have been holding the position of the CEO in a leading life support company for the entire MENA area.
Since 2014, I have also been working as a non-executive expert at the Federal Administrative Court in Vienna and since May 2016 till June 2019 as a generally sworn and court certified expert witness in Austria and worldwide. Since July 2019 as Expert and Consultant.
I am also working as a lecturer in various universities.
Some of my “soft skills”, among many other things, include training in becoming a coffee expert, Thai cuisine, and Islamic art.
