About Christina Smith

Christina has been a member of the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt team since May 2016. Her main responsibility is to find out what topics are relevant for the different event formats and which people have to come together to drive social change. In her previous position with the Eberhard von Kuenheim Foundation of BMW AG, she convinced leaders in various organizations that social and entepreneurial profit are not mutually exclusive but reinforce each other.

Persuasiveness is one of her strengths – and one she knows how to deploy fluently in English, German, and Norwegian, even though her Russian has become a bit rusty. She studied political science and worked internationally, moving from Munich to Oslo, Moscow, and London, always searching for the right words to explain complex things in simple terms. She was in charge of public relations and communications for investment goods trade fairs at Messe München and other companies.

But even the Thames cannot compete with the Isar. Today, Christina lives with her English husband and three children near Munich and loves taking an early morning run along the river before the start of another hectic day.
