Landau’s successor: a Styrian woman becomes the first woman to lead Caritas


Last Saturday, Caritas President Michael Landau surprisingly announced that he would no longer run for the top position of the aid organization. Three days later, his successor was determined: the Styrian Nora Tödtling-Musenbichler is the first woman to become Caritas boss.

At the general meeting of the Catholic aid organization on Tuesday in Götzis in Vorarlberg, the 40-year-old Caritas director of Styria and former vice-president of Caritas was elected as successor to Landau, who is retiring after ten years.

In the big ‘Krone’ interview last weekend, Landau said with a wink that he wanted to hand over the leadership of Caritas at a time ‘that more people regret than welcome’. He also made no secret of his wish that Caritas would be led by a woman for the first time in the future. The delegates granted his wish.
