Based in Vienna, Gerald Klenner is a trusted advisor to clients across a wide spectrum of sectors - ranging from process industry, machinery, automotive and general manufacturing to technology & telecommunications, infrastructure, transportation & logistics, all the way to wholesale, retail, and various professional services. He is an active member of Egon Zehnder’s global Industrial, Services, and Technology & Communications practices.
I apply my judgement and industry experience to develop solutions for top management positions that truly benefit both the company and the individual. This means constant learning and being prepared to venture into unchartered territories.
