Matthias Hocke is a Partner with Kingsley Gate Partners with more than 20 years of experience, specializing in the Industrial and Industrial Services sectors.

Before entering the search profession, he gained over 12 years of managerial experience with increasing responsibility in the military sector (army aviation).

He is also a certified aeronautical engineer from the German Air Force Technical Academy. He completed the Strategic Human Resource Management Program at Harvard Business School in Boston.
