Gusenbauer to head Strabag supervisory board

Former Social Democratic (SP÷) Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer is to become supervisory board chief at Austriaís biggest construction firm.

Strabag officials announced yesterday (Thurs) that Gusenbauer would be elected head of the companyís supervisory board as well as head of Strabag chief Hans Peter Haselsteinerís family foundation at the 18 June shareholdersí general assembly.

Gusenbauer headed a government coalition of the SP÷ and the conservative Peopleís Party (÷VP) for one and a half years before retiring from politics in December 2008.

The former SP÷ leader subsequently worked for the Lower Austrian Labour Chamber (AKN÷) for a short time before taking on several consulting assignments for high-profile businesses.

Vienna-based Strabag is Austriaís biggest construction firm as far as order value is concerned. It focuses on Germany, Austria and the Central and Eastern European region (CEE).

One of its latest major projects is construction of a bypass tunnel in the Swiss region of GraubŁnden for around 60 million Euros starting in June.
