For more than 30 years as personnel consultants we have provided professional and discerning consultancy services to the logistics industry. Accordingly, from the very beginning our primary focus is the long-term success of our client and not just the placement of a candidate. A sound understanding of our client's organization, its culture and markets is the foundation for a successful consultancy. We strive for long-term strategic business relationships and consider ourselves a reliable partner for our clients. Reinecke & Associates assumes all responsibilities beginning with the initial consultation to the successful conclusion of each mandate. Each candidate is personally selected by us.

We operate with discretion and integrity not only for our clients, but for our candidates as well.We consider it our duty to uphold traditional Hanseatic business values. Possible conflicts of interest are avoided by addressing them at the initial stage of our discussions. As independent consultants we form clear opinions and objective judgements. We are bound by principle towards our services and profession. Our focus is directed towards obtaining the best possible results. We work purposefully towards that end until success has been achieved.

Gerd Reinecke

As a former Director of HR at Kuehne + Nagel North America, Gerd Reinecke is familiar with the challenges of the logistics market. After graduating with a Masters degree in Economics from the Universities of Goettingen and Hamburg, he learnt the “people business” from scratch, starting at Kuehne + Nagel’s main branch in Bremen as their Manager Training and Development, eventually taking responsibility to build up the North American Organization in Toronto and New York.

Having experienced difficulties in finding qualified personnel for an international logistics provider, Gerd Reinecke decided after returning to Europe in 1983 that he wanted to help other companies find the right people at the right time, and therefore incorporated REINECKE & ASSOCIATES in New York and Hamburg.

For leisure and recreation, Gerd Reinecke enjoys visiting art galleries and antique fairs, and most evenings can be found jogging around the Alster lake.
