Toto Wolff | Speaker Biography

Led Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team to 8 consecutive Constructors' Championships
Co-owned a racing driver management company with Mika Häkkinen
Increased stake and continued as Team Principal & CEO with Mercedes F1 Team

Toto Wolff, the Team Principal & CEO of the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, has proven himself to be a remarkable leader in the world of motorsport. As the managing partner of the team and Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, he has led the team to an impressive record of eight consecutive Formula One Constructors' Championships (2014-2021) and seven consecutive Drivers' Championships (2014-2020). Born in Vienna, Austria, Toto's interest in motorsport was sparked when he was 17 years old and witnessed a friend racing at the Nürburgring. He then embarked on a short racing career of his own, participating in the Austrian Formula Ford and achieving a class win at the 1994 Nürburgring 24 Hours. After three years, Toto decided to end his racing career and shifted his focus to the business and investment world. He studied at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and went on to establish his own investment companies, Marchfifteen in 1998 and Marchsixteen in 2004. Initially, Toto's investments were primarily in internet and technology companies during the 'tech boom' of the 90s. However, his business evolved to include strategic investments in medium-sized industrial and listed companies. One notable investment was his involvement in the initial public offering of HWA AG, the company responsible for developing and racing Mercedes-Benz cars in the DTM (German Touring Car Championship) and Formula 3 engine program. Toto sold his stake in HWA AG in 2015. In 2002, Toto embarked on a new venture by co-owning a racing driver management company with two-time Formula One World Champion Mika Häkkinen. That same year, Toto returned to racing and achieved a victory en route to finishing sixth in the FIA GT World Championship. He further showcased his skills in 2006 by claiming top overall honors at the 24 Hours of Bahrain. In November 2009, Toto combined his passion for racing and investment by investing in the Williams F1 Team. By July 2012, he became the Executive Director of the team and played a crucial leadership role in Williams' first win in eight years at the Spanish Grand Prix. Less than a year later, Toto was appointed Managing Partner of the Mercedes F1 Team after being asked by the Daimler AG Board to analyze their Formula One performance. He acquired a 30% stake in the Brackley-based team alongside co-shareholder Niki Lauda. Concurrently, he assumed the role of Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, with overall responsibility for the company's works motorsport programs. At the end of the 2020 F1 season, it was announced that Toto had increased his stake in the team, joining INEOS and Daimler AG as equal one-third shareholders. It was also confirmed that Toto would continue serving as Team Principal and CEO for the next three years. Toto Wolff's journey exemplifies the power of passion and determination in achieving success both on and off the racetrack. His inspiring story and leadership skills make him an ideal choice for those seeking motivation and guidance in pursuing their own passions.
