Restructure of ÖVGW management

The Austrian Association for Gas and Water (ÖVGW) starts the year with a new management team.

Harald Schneider, CEO of Innsbrucker Kommunalbetriebe AG (IKB), will be ÖVGW President and spokesman of the water sector for the next two years. While continuing his predecessors’ policy, Schneider also seeks to strengthen the bonds with Brussels to exert a stronger influence on EU water management. He receives support from Vice-President Gerhard Siegl, CEO of OÖ Ferngas AG, who takes over as spokesman of the gas sector. Michael Mock has been appointed Managing Director of ÖVGW for another two years.
