Peter Strieder studied law at the University of Regensburg from 1972 to 1978 . He then completed his legal clerkship at the Court of Appeal and passed the second state examination in law. From 1980 to 1992 Peter Strieder was a judge in Berlin . In 1992 he was elected district mayor of Berlin-Kreuzberg . He held this office until 1996. Then he took over the office of Senator for Urban Development (building, housing, transport, environmental protection). Peter Strieder has been working as a lawyer at Ketchum Plean GmbH since 2004.

Political party

Strieder has been a member of the SPD since 1972.

After Walter Momper's free choice as the top candidate of the Berlin SPD, Strieder was elected state chairman of his party in January 1999.

Public offices

In 1992 Strieder was elected district mayor of Berlin-Kreuzberg , but had to give up the office again after the 1995 Berlin election because the SPD had lost its majority in the district. Instead, he was elected to the Senate of Governing Mayor Eberhard Diepgen ( CDU ) as Senator for Urban Development, Environmental Protection and Technology on January 26, 1996 . This office was reassigned to him after the Berlin election on October 10, 1999 , but it now traded under the name of the “Senate Department for Urban Development”. He also received a mandate in the House of Representatives when he was elected, which he surrendered after his election as senator. As part of the Berlin banking crisis in 2001, the grand coalition that had ruled since 1991 broke , which resulted in a vote of no confidence in the previous ruling mayor Diepgen and the election of the SPD parliamentary group leader Klaus Wowereit as his successor. Wowereit and the SPD formed a Red-Green minority senate that was tolerated by the PDS . Peter Strieder played a leading role in this political development. He also kept his previous department under Klaus Wowereit and also remained after the new elections on October 21, 2001, Senator for Urban Development, this time in a red-red coalition .

Tempodrom affair and resignation

During his time as senator, the planning and construction of the Tempodrom fell , the financing of which was a matter of dispute. Even the operation could not be financed without subsidies. After the public prosecutor's office had started investigations, Strieder gave up all political offices on April 7, 2004. This concerned the SPD state chairmanship, the Senate department, his mandate in the Berlin House of Representatives and his job as an elector in the Federal Assembly . The investigation was closed in 2007.

According to politics

Since his resignation, Peter Strieder has been working as a political advisor and is currently working as a senior partner at Ketchum Pleon's Berlin location . He is a member of the supervisory board of the Berlin project developer EUREF AG.
