Who we are
REICHEL ADVISORS was founded by Dr. Thomas Reichel, in 2005. After spending 12 years in leadership positions at the DEUTSCHE BANK and the GEA Group, a tech company, he decided to make a change. Since then, he has made it his aim to provide better personnel consulting than he received and works to give his clients the best possible service.
Today, we advise a group of long-standing clients, ranging from DAX 30 and mid-size companies, all the way to family-owned businesses, and investors. If you are also looking to fill an internal position that requires a high level of responsibility, we can find the most qualified and suitable executive for you.
Our subsidiary HEADZOOM.COM was later founded as a joint venture with ‘brand eins Medien AG’ in Hamburg, and provides managers with a new and effective instrument that can be used to convince the greatest thinkers in the market to join your team, while simultaneously positioning your company on the market as a cutting-edge, collaborative employer.
We build career bridges between people across all business sectors — between people whose interests complement one another, and who have the potential for a successful and long-term business relationship. Achieving this requires acute sensibilities and a serious interest in working together with people — and for them. However, the extreme focus on commerce often found in our metier, combined with the need to put on superficial airs, prevents this from happening. After all, these go hand in hand with the pressure to perform at all costs, alongside ‘industrialised’ recruiting procedures and tendentious — sometimes even manipulative — consultation methods.
We have chosen to distance ourselves from all of that and see ourselves as ‘craftsmen’ for whom diligence, quality and honesty serve as guiding principles. This applies to both our clients, as well as the interview partners to whom we offer guidance and orientation during their job search. By foregoing extravagant expenses that do nothing to improve the quality of our work, we are free to focus on being an excellent consultancy and sounding board.
