Gernot Riechmann

As a basis to create shared understanding between different players within an organization, you need to comprehend their interests and the rationale of their actions – namely their inner logic.


Gernot Riechmann (b. 1950) holds a degree in public management and governance. He joined Metaplan in 1978 and has been a partner since 1993. He consults executive committees in the areas of strategy development and implementation, organizational redesign, management development, and market exploration.

Personal interests

When Gernot needs to put some distance between himself and his consulting work – even the most stimulating projects – he turns to the game of golf for balance. Here, his motto is: be ambitious, but relax.
Gernot’s family ties have given him a special appreciation of Asian culture and lifestyle. Deepening his knowledge in this area ranks high on his personal preference list.
