Thomas Mielke
Managing Director

Assisting clients through a phase of transition, and knowing that my involvement made a direct and measurable impact on their success, is a constant source of inspiration. Ultimately, this is what keeps me motivated, and what has led to my move into human resources consulting.

As a founding partner of AETHOS Consulting Group, Thomas has a track record in successfully placing senior executives at leading hospitality companies across the EMEA region. He is an AESC certified consultant and is working together with travel wholesalers, real estate development firms, investment companies and sovereign wealth funds as well as leading restaurant brands in identifying key talent and has joined forces with clients in establishing compensation schemes as well as organisational structures and workflows.

Thomas strongly believes that HR and Talent Management should be regarded as a vital component of a firm’s roadmap to success. Acting as a trusted advisor, he supports the process of identifying, developing and/or enhancing those values and best practices that define and foster a corporate culture and help create a core competency centred around people. He is passionate about organisational advisory, learning and development and has authored a number of articles on leadership, corporate governance, emotional intelligence and managerial core competencies that predict job performance within hospitality. Thomas began his career within human resources and organisational advisory with HVS Executive Search and is a graduate of Ecole hoteliere de Lausanne, holding a BSc. in International Hospitality Management.
