Marius Marinoff is a seasoned professional who has masterfully navigated the realms of governmental relations, behavior analysis, integrated waste management, and entrepreneurship, leaving an indelible mark on each sphere he’s touched. With a multifaceted career distinguished by transformative achievements, Marius has continually demonstrated his ability to drive innovation and impact across diverse industries.

At the heart of Marius’s journey is his tenure as a technical consultant within Veolia’s Middle East division, where he harnessed his extensive knowledge to shape a part of the waste management strategies at VEOLIA Middle East. His visionary insights redefined waste management paradigms and paved the way for novel approaches that continue to shape the industry.

Marius’s influence extends onto the global stage, exemplified by his role as a representative of the EU Council in critical climate change negotiations in Tokyo. His active participation in such high-stakes dialogues underscores his exceptional capacity to navigate complex international forums and advocate for sustainable solutions on a global scale.

A testament to his visionary leadership is the establishment of ARMID (Association for Recycling and Integrated Waste Management). Through this groundbreaking initiative, Marius brought together stakeholders from all corners of the waste market, united under a common goal: a remarkable 95% reduction in waste landfilling. This audacious aspiration wasn’t just a vision; it was a meticulously planned strategy that intertwined legal, technical, and commercial mechanisms.

As the founder of Hoff Group Global, Marius’s entrepreneurial acumen shines brightly. His transformative influence was evident as he guided a company from a modest $600,000 turnover to a staggering $20 million. Under the Hoff Group Global umbrella, Marius’s versatile thinking spurred the creation of various ventures spanning tourism, online commerce, and sustainable eco housing, showcasing his ability to transcend traditional boundaries and capitalize on emerging trends.

Marius’s expertise is also evident in his consultancy roles for major national e-platforms, where he harnessed his insights to revolutionize segregated waste collection and trading, leveraging technology for heightened efficiency.

Beyond the corporate landscape, Marius’s impact transcended borders as he advised the Vice Prime Minister and Minister of the Environment in Romania during the nation’s presidency of the EU Council. This pivotal role underscores his capacity to influence and guide policy-making at the highest echelons of government.

His role as the General Manager of HBI Center SRL highlighted his fascination with human behavior analysis, where his expertise extended to decoding non-verbal cues, micro-expressions, and paraverbal communication, showcasing his comprehensive understanding of human dynamics.

Marius’s ongoing commitment to innovation is further showcased through his foundation of the Romanian Business Council in UAE. This visionary initiative under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Khalifa bin Hamdan Al Nahyan serves as a transformative bridge between Middle Eastern and European business worlds, fostering a secure and verified environment for cross-continental collaboration.

Collectively, Marius’s myriad experiences have paved the way for Infinity Resource’s cutting-edge waste recycling solutions and a new business ecosystem poised for the impending Industry 5.0 revolution. In an era where thinking beyond conventional limits is essential, Marius’s legacy exemplifies the art of remaining authentic while pushing the boundaries of innovation. His journey is a testament to the profound impact that an individual can have when guided by expertise, vision, and an unwavering commitment to positive change.
