Imrecke Consulting GmbH was founded in 2016 by Captain Matthias Imrecke and is based in Ellerau, North of Hamburg.

The founder's 40 years of experience, both as a ship broker and as master mariner on tankers and container ships and in management positions in Germany and abroad, form the basis for the company's services.

We focus on applying international, maritime know-how across industries and making the knowledge available to others in a wide range of consulting services.

Whether in maritime consulting, digitization, personnel consulting, workshops, trainings or inspections and audits, the professional and high-quality performance and practical applicability of the consulting services always have priority. Customer acceptance and practicability are of great importance.

We believe that modern entrepreneurs are not only responsible for their own actions, but the scope of their responsibility extends to employees as well as business processes and their impact on society.

Our daily business conduct, the basic ethical attitude and one's own values ​​such as honesty and fairness, trustworthiness, integrity, tolerance, responsibility and sustainability are based on the understanding of true hanseatic values. 

As a result, in addition to our work, we are also involved in social projects for disadvantaged children. Through our membership in "Friends for Kids" e.V., the weakest in our society can be helped directly and unbureaucratically within the framework of the association.
