General Manager & Shareholder

Christian Geissler


Strategy and future. Christian Geissler is responsible for the strategy and direction our company takes. He started training and coaching at the tender age of five when he taught his friends how to tie a bow. He gained his first trainer licence while still in secondary school. Today he is responsible at Commax for company orientation and the development of new learning and development products. His task is to create new concepts such as the “Brand Academy” and “Brand Ambassador” training courses and win over a wealth of trainer personalities to work together with Commax.


Christian Geissler is himself a systemic coach and trainer and convinced by the Commax philosophy, but some things were still missing – and he filled in these gaps with modular training courses in a Commax Academy. Participation in and cooperation with companies that complement the Commax service portfolio. A look to China and Silicon Valley and how top training functions there. And, of course, coaching. Christian Geissler’s philosophy for Commax is that everything should be derived from a functional background. You don’t play around unless there’s a purpose to it. If having red spots on your nose improved discussions with employees, he would paint red spots on management staff noses. But this doesn’t work. So he won’t do it.
