Matthias Oertzen

Founder & Managing Director

A native of Germany, Matthias moved to Atlanta in 2005 and earned a bachelor’s degree in Managerial Science from Georgia State University. Having served as a Consultant at the German American Chamber of Commerce and as a Managing Director for a mid-size German company, Matthias understands the issues international companies face when entering the U.S. market.

After a successful journey as a Principal Consultant in an international recruitment agency, Matt decided to take a leap of faith and created the OERTZENGroup.

Matthias’ multicultural and bilingual background, paired with his long-standing experience as a manager and consultant for international clients, enables him to “walk in his clients’ shoes” and recommend customizable recruitment solutions, which allows them to focus on their core competencies rather than having to expend valuable resources in identifying and recruiting talent. Matthias strives to be a trusted advisor and uses his background to inquire about his clients’ needs, challenges, and cultural environment before recommending potential talent.
