Co-owner & Treasurer
Originally from Vienna (Austria), Alexandra Quester graduated from the University of Vienna with a M.Sc. in Biology. She worked for many years as a research assistant for a US based, multi-branch company named Shark School, concentrating on Shark behaviour science. Besides the scientific branch, Alexandra and Shark School concentrated on offering a unique experience of free-diving and scuba-diving safely with sharks to tourists from all over the world. This job made Alexandra develop her interest to work in a tourism-driven company.
Having always been enthousiastic about marine and freshwater ecosystems, Riverest combines all of Alexandra’s passions. Besides her studies, she worked many years in the family-owned business in Austria. Her well-rounded business understanding is a great asset in the undertaking of projects like Duldraeggan and now, Riverest.
