Clemens Graf von Waldburg-Zeil
Clemens Graf von Waldburg-Zeil is the second of five children of Alois Graf von Waldburg-Zeil and Trauchburg (1933–2014) and his wife Clarissa, nee. Countess von Schönborn-Wiesentheid (* 1936). He has been married to Princess Georgina von und zu Liechtenstein (* 1962) since 1985 and is the father of three daughters and two sons.
Following the graduation in Wirtschaftsgymnasium Wangen , he completed basic training in Nagold in the Parachute Training Company 250, committed itself to two years and trained as a reserve officer in the 3rd Company of the repair battalion 10 in Sigmaringen . He is first lieutenant in the reserve.
After completing his studies in computer science and economics in Karlsruhe and Tübingen as a business graduate, he worked from 1990 to 1992 as an audit assistant at the auditing and tax consulting company Dr. Lipfert GmbH in Stuttgart , then also for Dr. Lipfert GmbH as head of auditing and administration as well as tax advisor in Berlin .
From 1995 to 2002 he was head of finance for the Archdiocese of Berlin . Under his leadership, the financial administration of West Berlin was merged with the GDR part of the archdiocese in Western Pomerania, Brandenburg and East Berlin. The reunification of Germany had a significant financial impact on the finances of the archdiocese. At the same time from 1996 to 2002 he was managing director of EBV GmbH and Morus Verlag GmbH.
At the beginning of 2003 he took over the office of General Secretary of the German Red Cross (DRK). During his time at the DRK, Graf von Waldburg-Zeil was able to implement a number of process improvements and innovations. One of the main consequences of this was that the capital reserves of the DRK Federal Association, after years of losses before Waldburg-Zeil joined, could be built up to € 53 million. The 2010plus initiative was also decisive for this, the main point of which was to offer the most important tasks and services consistently and successfully across the board from an ethical, qualitative and economic point of view. The 2010 plus initiative subsequently served as a best practice template for change processes in external non-profit organizations such as the Evangelical Church in Germany and the Bertelsmann Foundation.
After a reorganization of the DRK, combined with a new version of the statutes at all levels of the general association, he was appointed chairman of the board of the DRK eV in 2009. As part of his work for the DRK, he has the following additional functions: Chairman of the board of the DRK foundations, member of the board of the Federal Association of Independent Welfare Care (BAGFW). Since 2004 he has also been a member of the Presidium and Presidial Committee of the German Association for Public and Private Welfare (DV). He is a member of the supervisory board of Aktion Mensch eV , a member of the board of trustees of the German Disabled Aid Foundation and a member of the board of the German Aid Foundation, the social arm of the ARD television lottery.
Count Waldburg was also a member of the “Future Forum Public Security” initiative, which was founded in 2007 by four MPs from four parliamentary groups in the German Bundestag. He is co-author of the “Green Paper on Public Safety”, in which experts from politics, the executive branch , companies, research and aid organizations used disaster scenarios to address open questions of disaster protection and demand political consideration. In 2009 it was institutionalized by founding an association; Graf Waldburg is a founding member and member of the four-person executive board.
