Dr. Silke Seemann is an economist and has spent the last thirty years renovating and living in the Praunsperglerische House with her family. Thanks to the support of the empathetic craftsmen of the region, the house turned into Hallstatt Hideaway in 2014. She enjoys it as her temporary home and a place to rewind with guests from all around the world.
Dr. Seemann teaches Strategic and Innovation Management and Human Resource Policy at the University of Salzburg and the University of Innsbruck. Being an organizational consultant she cooperates with the Zukunftsinstitut in Vienna in regards to the complexity of resource analysis and designing strategic leadership of future research and systemic strategy advice.
Her widespread know-how and expertise have also shown useful in creating the concept for Hallstatt Hideaway and her chosen hometown, which is a jewel that should be cherished by ensuring smart tourism. Most of the historic houses located on Hallberg can only be renovated using archaic construction methods. The construction site facilities alone generate ever increasing costs. Above all, there is also a problem of resource availability, since it is almost impossible to find workers in Middle Europe to do such heavy construction work.
