My name is Volker Kirchharz and I was born and raised in Koeln (Cologne), Germany. After receiving my Business Degree from the Berufsakademie in Stuttgart I started working with the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft in Cologne. The job at the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft opened my horizon to non-profit work and I was always drawn to working abroad because of my international travels.
After moving to the US in 1997, I started my career in non-profit administrative and finance work. I worked with a variety of non-profit civic and social service agencies in the Bay Area, Pittsburgh, PA and Seattle, WA.
I have started working as Office Manager at the German School of San Francisco in April of 2015 and my daughter joined the school as a student in Kindergarten. The German School is a great community and I truly enjoy the company of the parents, adult students, teaching staff, and board. I am very happy that I can apply my skills to serve such a great organization.
