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.
