Oliver Tonnar has more than 20 years of experience in the recruitment of sales and marketing positions. After studying economics at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Oliver Tonnar started his professional career as an auditor at one of the Big Four accounting firms. This is where he got a deeper understanding of the way his colleagues managed their career. From then on, he contributed his knowledge and skills to personnel consulting and moved to a large international personnel consultancy in the late ‘90s where he met Jörg Fricke, the founder of Fricke Finance & Legal, and successfully completed search mandates in finance and accounting. He then established a nationwide functional specialization structure for marketing & sales for these mandates and another international consultancy, before continuing his career as Managing Director with responsibility for various teams and business units in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Together with his former management team consisting of Susanne Hecker and Tatjana Goricki, he established the German branch of a UK-based executive search boutique, before founding MainKader Consulting with Susanne Hecker in 2019. In the same year, he and his colleagues joined his former companion and integrated MainKader Consulting into Fricke Finance & Legal.
Oliver Tonnar is very well connected in different sectors of the economy and has a strong international network. His career in personnel consulting is focused on the establishment and growth of new executive search divisions and the further development of existing recruitment organizations.
