Matthew Hansen – Outplacement and Career


    Others experience me as an impulse generator, inspiring sparring partner, and out-of-the-box thinker who offers his clients something different than mainstream.

    After completing my university degree (History, German, English) and working several years in education, my career led me out of the States (born in South Carolina) to Germany. Here I grew into consulting & coaching roles for communication, leadership, and career topics. The development has always been organic and aligned with my person and situation. Now, I offer my clients 25+ years of professional experience.

    As an outplacement-career consultant and coach for mid-/senior-level executives, I emphasize a clear, holistic focus that acknowledges the link between values & talents and job & setting. My personal commitment combined with tangible empathy and open-mindedness create a safe atmosphere in which trust can quickly grow.

    My clients seek input at eye level along with a sensitive yet pragmatic approach. Together we develop a job search plan that covers key topics and leads to the launch of customized marketing strategies.

    My maxim: Let my client tell the story, while I listen carefully and observe. With a calm, relaxed style, I see the whole person, provide structure, offer questions and insight, and give honest feedback respectfully.
