Baron Friedrich „Fritz“ Mayr Melnhof, born 1924, passed away on his „Glanegg“ estate on April 14th, 2020.
Driven by his entrepreneurial spirit, political understanding, generosity and caring for others, he was one of the leaders in rebuilding Austria after WW2.
In his work, he combined the love for his vast family and his commitment to society, holding the position of Finanzlandesrat (Minister of Finance) for the state of Salzburg for two terms, and was Salzburg‘s Landesjägermeister (head of hunting) for 30 years.
Fritz openly displayed his love and commitment to conservation as a very active member of the CIC for many years. His positive approach towards life and its challenges, his way of handling his position as center and head of a big Christian family and his achievements in politics, as estate-owner and as industrialist make him a towering role-model for all of us.
The CIC would like to pay its respects and give our thanks and condolences to the Mayr-Melnhof family.
