Ivan Haller
Ivan HallerDirector of Operations

“I have first been in contact with Konen & Lorenzen in 2014 and it feels like we know each other for a long time. When I first met Daniela Sieghart I felt this company is different. They want to get to know you first, professionally and on a personal basis. They want to make sure every detail is noted down and then they do their magic.
I truly appreciate their professionalism and eye for detail which lead to a tailor-made career opportunity knowing you as an individual.
The relationship with Konen & Lorenzen is and will be a long-term partnership and I highly recommend working with them even if you are not actively looking for a placement.”

“For more than twenty years Konen and Lorenzen has been an extremely reliable and utterly professional partner for me whenever I needed to fill a vacancy for a key position with the hotels I have managed. Even when the consultants changed over the years, the service always remained on the same high level throughout, from the initial request to placing the successful candidate with the company. 
I will without a doubt use the services of Konen and Lorenzen in the future and have therefore no hesitation in recommending Konen and Lorenzen to anyone.”
