Honorary Consul Mag. Friedrich Schopf

Honorary Consul of the Republic of Croatia
in Linz, Austria


Personal Information

Born: 13.04.1974, Linz
Marital status: married, 1 daughter
Citizenship: Austria


After graduating from the Jesuit College Aloisianum in Linz, I had the opportunity to gain international experience as part of a one-year student exchange program in Portugal and to personally experience the importance of intercultural exchange. I completed my studies in business administration at the JKU Linz in 1998 with my diploma thesis on "Strategic Brand Management".

Professional Background

My professional career has led me through several positions in banking and industry to my current position as a member of the board of directors of Linz Textil Holding AG. All the tasks in my career to date have been characterized by a strong international focus.

Linz Textil has been operating a production site in Klanjec/Croatia for more than 30 years, which means that the connection to the country and culture is particularly strong.

It is a particular pleasure and honor for me to be able to fulfill the function of the Croatian Honorary Consul in Linz. I see it not only as an important task to promote the Croatian community in Linz, but also to further develop and intensify the economic relations between Croatia and Upper Austria.
