Focus IndustryIndustry and jorda Management Colloquium jMC®
Georg graduated from Law School (Vienna University ) and began his career after his court internship at PCD Polymere GmbH (today a part of the Borealis Group), where he became Head of the Legal Department after one year. In 1992 he switched to the corporate HR division of Austrian Industries AG, where he was in charge of group-wide executive contracts as well as labour law and management development. One year later he moved to the General Secretariat to become Special Assistant to the Chairman of the Board. When the nationalized industries became subject to massive restructuring processes, Georg went to Böhler Uddeholm AG, where he was made Group HR Manager and a member of the privatization team. During this time he was also engaged with various bands as a professional musician.
In 2007 Böhler-Uddeholm was taken over by voestalpine AG, where he became part of the integration team, helping to incorporate Böhler-Uddeholm as the Special Steel Division into the voestalpine Group. In 2008 he was offered the post of Group HR Manager at the Group’s HQ in Linz - a position he held until the beginning of 2016.
Since July 2016 Georg has been a partner at jorda & partners, contributing his almost 30 years of HR experience for the benefit of their clients. He is convinced that – together with his colleagues – he can provide value in terms of management recruiting and potential assessment projects.
Georg is married to Doris Reiser, a restorer and painter. He still has a passion for music, most notably the works of Anton Bruckner.
