Paul-Chr. Rieber has since 1990 lead the billion-dollar company GC Rieber, which is a family-owned company with over 100 family members as shareholders. GC Rieber operates, amongst other things, within the fields of shipping, marine oils, salt, skins and property.

On 24 April 2010, Rieber withdrew as president of NHO, following a scandal in which a company where he was chair had evaded paying customs for several hundred million Norwegian krone on fish oil imports from Morocco.[1]
