Wolfgang Poeltl: Callcentre President
Among the candidates in Austria's 2004 presidential election were foreign minister Benita Ferrero-Waldner from the conservative People's Party, Heinz Fischer from the Social Democrats, and an entrepreneur named Wolfgang Poeltl. "Unlike other candidates," he said, "I am always available on the phone. And I also know what Austrian citizens want." How so? In addition to being a former bar pianist, DJ and entertainer, Poeltl was also the CEO of European Callcentre -- a telephone sexline operator based in Graz, Austria.
