Gerhard Nenning


Gerhard Nenning is an experienced strategy advisor with extensive track record in the Technology, Lighting, Energy and Industrial Service Sector.

Gerhard is Senior Partner of Munich based strategy consulting boutique Stern Stewart & Co. focusing for 20 years on strategy development and M&A, typically followed by organizational transformation. His creative and rigorously independent thinking has impacted strategic decisions in growing as well as contracting businesses.

With a hands on entrepreneurial instinct and often going against the grain, Gerhard has advised international corporates and mid-sized companies in ambitious growth strategies outside of their initial comfort zone. Conversely, he has helped prevent multi-billion investments which in hindsight would have been crippling.

Gerhard has co-founded the international, Munich based think tank The Stern Stewart Institute and shapes the Institute’s yearly agenda of dialogue with leaders in business, politics, and science. He is also publisher of the bi-annually appearing Stern Stewart Institute Periodical.

After training to become a banker at Deutsche Bank, he studied economics, business and political science at the University of Cologne, Germany and McGill University in Montréal.
