Austrian Man-made Fibers Institute (Austrian-MFI)/DORNBIRN MFC

Mr. Friedrich Weninger

Since 2015 I am leading the Austrian Fibers Institute which is organizing the world known yearly Dornbirn Fiber Congress. 
A real international event for now 58 years. 
Further I am also serving in several supervisory boards in the fiber and textile industry. 
Before that, I managed successfully various management functions in Lenzing Group for 25 years. Deep knowledge of the global fiber industry gained by the responsibility of global Sales & Marketing & Logistics in Lenzing Group. 
Nevertheless my strong dedication and commitment towards innovation I could leverage best by serving as a board member for Lenzing Group. 
As COO (Chief Operating Officer) I was responsible for Marketing & Sales, Production, Innovation, Investments for the major business pulp and fiber but also for the business units plastics and synthetic fibers with a total revenue of 1.9 bio €. 
Further in 2011 we exercised a successful IPO (Initial Public Offering) for a freefloat of Lenzing shares of 33% at the stock exchange
