About Dr. Christian Gruenler
Christian Gruenler is a political scientist and an expert in strategic management of non-profit organizations. He studied international politics and organizational development at the University of Konstanz (Germany) and earned a Ph.D. at the University for Humanistics in Utrecht (The Netherlands). The topic of his theses was the thorny issue of genetic enhancement of the human brain.
Christian started his professional career in a large international re-insurance corporation. He then managed a family office for a few years – a function with a focus on asset management, which obliged Christian to observe world markets and their disturbing ups and downs.
For the last 20+ years, he has been a manager and consultant for a large variety of non-profit organizations in several countries. During this long phase in his life, he was able to form a very clear picture of how civic society works. How values have become important drivers of politics and economic activities. But also, how meaning well does not always lead to effective philanthropic programs.
