Commitment and Competence: These People Head the Ernst Freiberger Foundation
For Ernst Freiberger, social commitment is an ethical imperative. Born in Amerang, in the Chiemgau district, the entrepreneur is deeply rooted in the traditions of his home region and those of his family. The latter follows the motto: Let us not pass on property and vested rights but rather the courage to start a new entrepreneurial project in each generation. The beginnings lie in a bakery in the home village. In the course of a century, four generations develop businesses in different branches of trade. Ernst Freiberger sets off by making innovative investments in the food industry, later on he expands his activities towards real estate, health care and hotel business.
For two decades, the trained banker and chartered accountant has been closely associated with entrepreneur Ernst Freiberger, and today he still belongs to the latter’s inner leadership circle. In 2002, when he was executive director of the Freiberger Holding, Rupert Rußwurm additionally became the executive director of the Ernst Freiberger Foundation. Before he joined the Freiberger Holding, he worked in cooperative banking, his last post being on the board of directors of the Raiffeisenbank Chiemsee. From there he moved on to the executive board of the EFA Clinics Ltd. which was to turn into today’s Medical Park AG. Medical Park is regarded to be the quality leader in the field of medical rehabilitation. Just like Ernst Freiberger, Rupert Rußwurm also holds close ties to the traditions of his home region, having been serving as a member of the municipal council for more than 30 years.
