OUR PHILOSOPHY Identify key players and move them forward.


Sustained commitment –
international success.

Whether you are a multinational player, international organization or individual company, personnel consulting is an investment, and it has to deliver returns. It’s not just about staffing for vacancies in the short term. The goal is to spur lasting positive development at companies and in their management culture. This requires the highest level of professionalism, entrepreneurial foresight and personal experience.

Thomas Deininger - Geschäftsführer - DEININGER CONSULTING

Our founder - Thomas Deininger

DEININGER CONSULTING was founded in 1981 by Thomas Deininger as a partner-managed personnel consultancy in Frankfurt am Main. With visionary energy and professional expertise, he led it to become an internationally renowned address for executives.

In the mid-1990s, the Eastern European markets and, since 2004, Asia have been successfully developed with our own local offices.

True to the maxim of a sustainable and forward-looking approach, Thomas Deininger handed over the reins at the end of 2023 - after a joint transition phase - to his long-time employee Joy Edwin Thanarajah, who is now leading the company into the future together with his fellow consultants (m/f/d).


Rooted in Frankfurt, serving the world.

DEININGER CONSULTING was founded in 1981 as a partner-led personnel consulting firm in Frankfurt, Germany. We started developing the markets in Eastern Europe in the mid-1990s and began our successful practice at hotspots in Asia in 2004.

Managing Director Thomas Deininger laid the foundation for DEININGER CONSULTING and has had a lasting impact, shaping the company with professionalism, dedication and trust through its history and into the future.
