Since the beginning of April, Mag. Mark Perz, MA, MBA has been the new member of the Board responsible for the Mobility & Leisure division at Holding Graz. In his new position, he takes over the responsibilities of Barbara Muhr, who moved to the Board of Messe Graz last autumn. As a new Board director, Mark Perz is returning to his home city of Graz after just under twenty years in Graz and several career stages abroad.

As a graduate in business administration from the University of Graz, Perz initially worked at the Austrian Institute of Technology in Seibersdorf and then as an authorised signatory at Rail Cargo Hungaria in Budapest which belongs to the ÖBB Rail Cargo Austria Group.
