voestalpine is launching yet another program as part of its video and moving image communication offerings. Starting immediately, the voestalpine talk program will broadcast 15-minute on-camera conversations with important members of the voestalpine Group in order to shine some light on decisions, background information, and contexts.
Aside from the moderator, Gerald Groß, we also succeeded in recruiting the Chairman of voestalpine’s Supervisory Board, Joachim Lemppenau, for the first interview. It was recorded in late November at voestalpine Stahlwelt.

“When the Management Board is good, the Supervisory Board is idle. When the Management Board is bad, the Supervisory Board is helpless!”
Is this statement accurate? The very first voestalpine talk will give you some insight into the work of the Supervisory Board. You will hear about the backdrop to important decisions such as the acquisition of BÖHLER-UDDEHOLM, events such as the financial and economic crisis following the Lehman bankruptcy, and what criteria are used in the nomination of a new CEO.
"The Supervisory Board on the whole must be able to tell whether the company’s corporate bodies are functioning reasonably well."
