Bernd Kahnert | GCC Team

Graduated as a Master of Engineering in wood Technology at Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences, Germany's leading university for wood technology. I obtained my Bachelor in wood Technology at Hogeschool Gent, Belgium and did a post graduate pedagogic course for teaching.

Additionally, I have over 2 decades of relevant work experience, ranging from working as a trained carpenter and cabinet maker to being a wood technology teacher in the province of Antwerp (Belgium) for 6 years. As an international project manager for leading technology companies like imos and HOMAG I then worked as area sales manager for HOMAG eSolution where I was responsible for EMEA, USA and Australia/New Zealand.

Working as a consultant, I was fortunate to implement digitalization processes in many different countries like New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland, the Netherlands, France, Russia, …

These experiences gave me a wealth of experience that helped me better understand local accents and cultures and how to implement complex processes in a local context.

Helped by advanced language skills (I speak 6 languages on a conversational level) I was able to create an international network of partners and customers with whom I have kept in contact to this day.

I would be looking forward to adding you/your company to this network.
