Dr Matthias Mayr will be CEO of OAC from April 2022
"Matthias is exactly the right person for the job, he is unconventional, thinks in an interdisciplinary way and networks. Matthias is economically minded and without losing touch with the guidelines and conditions of a globally operating NGO. Matthias and I already know each other from the time when I was not yet diagnosed with cancer. I have always liked his way of approaching and implementing things. There is no "what to do if it doesn't work", this is the thinking that connects us. It doesn't work, simply doesn't exist. I have full confidence in his work. We represent the same values, as athletes and as humans, and with OAC we have the greater good in mind on a global level," Petra Thaller, Founder & President OAC.
