This is only a short summary of some of the most interesting projects out of Frank Stronachs huge portfolio.
As his lifes work is too diverse and complex to show each and every project, Frank selected his personal favorites, looking back on more than 60 years of entrepreneurial experience.
One of Frank Stronach’s most significant accomplishments is the creation of a Corporate Constitution that governs Magna International Inc., the company he founded in 1957.
The Corporate Constitution is much more than a mission statement – it is the cornerstone of Magna’s unique entrepreneurial culture. At the core of the Corporate Constitution is a clear-cut formula – or economic charter of rights – that allows each of Magna’s key stakeholders to participate in the Company’s growth and profitability.

In September 2005, Frank Stronach initiated the evacuation of hundreds of victims of the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
Magna founder and Chairman Frank Stronach was sitting in a hotel room watching TV news reports of the worst natural disaster in US history. Hurricane Katrina caused flooding and damage that left close to one million people along the Gulf Coast homeless and in need of food and shelter. Most of the hardest hit victims were seniors and the very poor. Watching images of homeless and helpless people trying to flee New Orleans, Frank remembered his own upbringing in war-torn Austria – a time when he was poor and hungry. Those experiences, said Frank, “are burned right into the soul.”
He picked up the phone and got in touch with some of Magna’s senior executives. He asked them to put together an emergency rescue plan to move hundreds of evacuees by bus and plane to a Florida horse training facility in West Palm Beach.
