Our Management


Having spent more than 20 years working with leading international retailers, manufacturers, universities and other organisations large and small across a wide range of industries, Cosaris Managing Director Rene Schneider has a wealth of knowledge and connections at his fingertips.

Rene worked for seven years as the Managing Director and Partner of an Austrian-based consultancy and business support agency. During this time, he helped the agency transform into a cross-industry organisation, combining consulting, training, marketing and various business support services.

Rene then joined IGD as Global Retail Engagement Director. IGD is a leading London-based charity, research and membership organisation focusing on food retailers and their suppliers.

In this role, he was responsible for the company’s commercial activities in Europe and Asia. He developed and implemented a successful strategy to globally engage with retailers from a research and commercial perspective.

During his five years at IGD the company grew from a UK-centric organisation to a leading, global player.

Rene holds a Master’s degree in business administration with a focus on marketing, innovation and environmental management. Born in the south of Austria, he now lives in Brighton, UK, with his wife and two children.
