Marmei, who is 44, has a history degree from Tartu and completed his master's in international relations at Notre Dame in 1996. He has been in the Estonian foreign service since 1993, with postings in Brussels, Washington and London.

Immediately prior to taking over as ambassador from Marina Kaljurand, Marmei was ambassador to Poland and Romania, residing in Warsaw.
