In addition to holding these positions, the family man with one daughter gained a great deal of experience abroad. From 2003 to 2005 and 2008 to 2009, Kainersdorfer acted as Managing Director of voestalpine Railpro/Niederlande. From 2006 to 2008, he acted as Executive Vice President of VAE Nortrak North America. In 2009, the designated member of the voestalpine AG Management Board took over the position of CEO of voestalpine Stahl Donawitz GmbH & CoKG, where he is responsible for the areas of controlling and finance, purchasing and sales, personnel and IT.
In accordance with the resolution passed today by the Supervisory Board at voestalpine, the change from Dipl.-Ing. Mülner to Dipl. Ing. Dr. Kainersdorfer will take place on 1st July 2011. Mülner will then retire after 37 years of employment at voestalpine and 8 years as Chairman of the Management Board at voestalpine Bahnsysteme GmbH and member of voestalpine AG’s Management Board. The milestones in the 64-year-old Styrian’s career include his leading role in the internationalisation of the railway division and the continuous development of globally leading railway expertise in the areas of technology and production.
Clear evidence of Mülner’s successful work is the development of voestalpine Bahnsysteme into a global market leader for switches and a European market leader for tracks, in addition to the ongoing global expansion of the division in the most recent projects in Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
