Dr. Jörg Richtsfeld

Dr. Jörg Richtsfeld, who after studying economics and earning a doctorate at the University of St. Gallen and initially worked as an assistant at the Swiss Institute for Banking and Finance, was CEO of Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg from 2005 to 2011. With over 15 years of experience in corporate strategy and management positions in multinational technology and media groups, Richtsfeld saw the management of the only manufacturing facility in the world still working with historical handcraft as a particular challenge. He continued on the path that the porcelain manufactory had always followed and invited contemporary designers such as Gustavo Lins, Clemens Weisshaar, Pae White, Christian Lacroix and Vivienne Westwood to develop new objects and decors.
