Tohru Nakamura - Chef de cuisine at Geisels Werneckhof


Born and bred in Munich with German-Japanese roots, Tohru began his apprenticeship as chef in the Hotel Königshof under the leadership of Martin Fauster, and already began winning coveted awards as a young cook, such as the "German youth champion". He then went abroad, for example to the Netherlands, worked as a sous chef in various top restaurants in Japan, to then return to Geisel. He has been Chef de Cuisine in Geisel's Werneckhof since April 2013, where he soon earned himself a Michelin star and 17 Gault Millau points.

Our cooperation partners

The Geisel family and many of our team who have been with us for many years have a valuable treasure at their fingertips: a large network of contacts to leading hotels and restaurants around the world. This means that we can help employees looking for a change or new challenge, find the right job. Among our cooperation partners are: the Staudacherhof and the Kranzbach in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Schloss Elmau, the Sonnenalp Resort and the Dein Engel hotel in the Allgäu, the Bachmair-Weissach hotel at the Tegernsee and the Cortina Hotel and Hotel Louis in Munich.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

We promote sustainable development through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Being a family-managed private company, we put the focus on people in our everyday work and decisions. We take responsibility for our staff and the society and world we live in. This conviction is an essential part of our corporate philosophy, and all our employees live by it. While the international hotel sector is heavily dominated by the standardisation trend right now, we place great value on our individuality. We encourage all our staff to make sustainable decisions. We believe that this approach, appealing to the individuals in our company, is more important and effective than a centralised company sustainability policy. In this way, we are always open for new opportunities: Together with the kate and TourCert, we participate in the CSR certification project for the hotel industry. We are happy to be one of the first hotels to be awarded the TourCert seal of approval. This certification is a reward for our efforts to date and encourages us to keep examining our daily activities with regard to sustainability and continuously keep getting better.
