Gerald is a passionate changemaker. Born in Vienna, he lived and worked in many cities around the world. In 2014 he co-founded the Urban Future, an event initially designed as a workshop that developed into Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities in record time. It’s the key meeting point for people who drive change in cities. Through his long-standing domestic and international networking efforts with mayors, city planners and urban decision-makers, he possesses comprehensive insights into the development of cities around the world. But most importantly he simply loves to make cities more sustainable.
Earlier, Gerald initiated and supported change processes for various companies in Germany, the USA, India and China, including DHL, Deutsche Post, Steiner Optik and Thyssen Elevators. He studied at Karl-Franzens University Graz, Montclair State University, NYU and Harvard Business School in the USA.
