… the founder of Konen & Lorenzen Recruitment Consultants, has been the company’s Managing Director since its formation in September 1997.

After successfully completing his apprenticeship in Restaurant Management, Manuel was attracted to the internationally renowned hotel chains Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts and Intercontinental Hotels Group, where he focused on the departments Food & Beverage and Controlling. To deepen his management skills, he decided to study at the Hotel Management School in Heidelberg, where he successfully graduated in the the same year as Arne Lorenzen – this was the beginning of Konen & Lorenzen Recruitment Consultants. It was in 1997 that they turned a business idea into reality, founding what is now one of the leading companies in the field of personel consulting for the hotel, catering and tourism industry. Less than 3 years later, in 1999, Manuel and Arne once again had a good nose for a business idea and founded the internet job board HOTELCAREER. While Arne developed what is today YOURCAREERGROUP, Manuel was mainly responsible for the development of Konen & Lorenzen Recruitment Consultants, making the company what it is today.
