Oliver Kaiser

BURG Head Barkeeper

What was your professional career like, from your apprenticeship up to today?
I visited the Gastgewerbefachschule (Hospitality College) in Bad Gleichenberg, which I completed in 1989. In winter that same year, I was in Zürs for the very first time and worked there in the Vernissage as "Commis de bar". Thereafter I worked various seasons in Kühtai, Ischgl, Attersee and Wörthersee. 1993 I went to Vienna to a large wine tavern, where I was responsible for events and key customers.

I then transferred to Hannes Jagerhofer’s Event Agency ACTS (Organiser of the Beach Volleyball Grand Slam), where I worked together very well with Rainer Husar. From the two of them I learned a lot about event management and was able to make many contacts. In 1996, I opened my own catering business Beweg-Bar (Austria's first Bar-Catering).
