• HR Consultant / Recruiting Expert

    Mathias Mengel


    Mathias Mengel finished his studies of philosophy, civil law and human resources/organizational matters at the University of Potsdam and at the Homboldt-University Berlin.

    Born in a technologized world, he very early began to engage himself in computers and the internet, including social media. Although Mathias is engaged in a wide field of study, he found himself most interested in human resources-related topics such as recruiting and hr-development.

    Having gained good experiences in IT-, Marketing- and Sales-Recruitment over the past 6 years, he is now working as a recruitment consultant for top-level companies and founded the full service recruitment agency "Kooku Konsult" in 2015.
