The Kufstein authorities appointed Franz Mayer, former Director of the Stadtwerke Kufstein utility company and CEO of Kufgem, as Executive Chairman. The former mayor of Kufstein, Dr. Herbert Marschitz, was appointed as Chair of the Board, proposed by the Association for International Courses of Study & Training of the FH Kufstein. DDR. Herwig van Staa, President of the Tyrolean Parliament, remains Deputy Chair of the Board, appointed by the authorities of the Tyrol.
A six-year success story
The mayor of Kufstein, Mag. Martin Krumschnabel, regards the past six years as a success story. “The era of the outgoing Chairmen with Siegfried Dillersberger as Chair and Hans Treichl as Executive Chairman was highly successful. Not only did they commit to the expansion of the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences, they also made the institution home to an international school." The representative of the Kufstein authorities predicts a successful future for the town as a hub for education and training. "The outgoing Chairmen of the Board have advanced the teaching spectrum greatly, laying the foundation for a promising continuation by their successors."

They contributed substantially to today's position of the FH Kufstein Tirol as one of the most renowned educational institutions in Austria with high-quality training and significant contributions to research. I would like to express my profound gratitude on behalf of the Advisory Board," said Josef Waltl.
The Advisory Board also has a new member. Simon Hermann Huber ended his successful six-year term.
