Ernst von Kimakowitz

Dr. von Kimakowitz is founding Director of the Humanistic Management Center, an independent think tank and advisory firm on business ethics and sustainability as well as the executive education provider Ethics First. He is also a lecturer at the University of St.Gallen, Switzerland, the University of Tübingen, Germany and was visiting professor at Soka University, Tokyo, Japan in 2016. He developed the three stepped approach to Humanistic Management on the basis that we are currently experiencing an ‘economization’ of every aspect of life that is counterproductive to individual and societal wellbeing.

The success story of market economies has produced negative side effects that have become to grave to be ignored by simply claiming that the pro’s outweigh the con’s. We are hence called to action in order to become smarter in using market economies in service of a more equitable and more sustainable planet.

His role will be to embed this approach into the project, so human flourishing has a holistic, systemic, life-conducive market economy approach.

Dr. Kimakowitz is also the leader and co-founder of the Humanistic Management Network, a global scholarly network working towards protecting human dignity, promoting human wellbeing and fostering human flourishing.
