Holger Gerhards

Holger Gerhards is owner and managing director of gmc² GmbH. The gmc² combines professional know-how as an IBCS® Certified Provider with implementation expertise as an IBM partner in the Cognos environment.


Holger Gerhards is owner and managing director of gmc² GmbH, did an apprenticeship as an office clerk and studied business administration (University of Cologne).

Since the company was founded in 2004 Holger Gerhards has devoted himself to the subject of “Information Design”. Driven by this passion a chapter for the Euroforum Training “Efficient Management Reporting” emerged: “The Design Dimension”. He brings his technical expertise into a membership at the IBCS Association and encourages the development of standards for visualization of management reports ahead. His practice-oriented approach is a huge benefit for the association. Consequently he introduces actual requirements in the development of standards.

At gmc² he’s the technical head and transforms his expertise into the progression of concepts and software. Thereby efficient reporting emerges, based on the SUCCESS formula of IBCS®. In addition, he incorporates the topic into all communication and decision-making processes. An email without a message in three different font sizes is a thing of the past – thanks to Holger Gerhards.

Holger Gerhards has successfully completed the IBCS® certification for successful design of reports and presentations at the HICHERT+FAISST IBCS® Institute in July 2016.
