Horst Krumbach was born in 1964 and lives in Aachen/Germany. After a twelve years banking career he switched to the nonprofit sector and became director of one of the oldest German nursing homes in 1996. He transferred it into a foundation whose director he has been since then.
Within the foundation he established the first German intergenerational enterprise “Generationsbrücke Deutschland” (Generationsbridge Germany) in 2009, being one of the most successful German social enterprises meanwhile. Last year his intergenerational concept has been adopted by the Moscow located nursing homes “house at park”, being the third and meanwhile most important international Generationsbridge partner.
Horst also built day care centers under the roof of his foundation after he realized the socially relevance of this special form of elderly care. Day care centers have become the fastest growing institutions for the professional care of elderly people in Germany as they provide important advantages for everybody involved: for the residents themselves, their families and also for the operators and owners.
For his work, Horst has been numerously awarded, among others by German Chancellor Angela Merkel who supports Generationsbrücke Deutschland personally as honorary patron. He is a frequent speaker at international conferences around the world.
