Who is Frank Thiele?

Since 2003 I am self-employed as a consultant in Dive-/Water Sports and Hotel-/Hospitality Services.

After several years working as a tour guide, diving instructor and dive center manager, I started in 1997 to work for the biggest franchise company in diving as a regional manager. After a short time I was PR manager, too. My career led me in 2001 to Dcc (Dive Center Consulting), where I was the managing director for 2 years. In early 2003 I got the opportunity to take over Dcc myself.

I was able to make experiences in cooperation with various companies all around the world. Cultural, social and religious differences are on this occasion always a challenge, but also makes my work very interesting.

Concerning the practical part of my work, I have logged more than 10,000 dives, out of these I have done about 1,200 in cold waters, and out of these again I have completed over 250 on an altitude of 300m above sea level or higher. I have trained more than 3,500 students to dive and tried to show them my vision of the world under water - and I hope there will be some more. Furthermore I can train divers in 28 Speciality Courses, some of them I have developed myself.

My commitment to my profession as well as to the protection of the underwater world has already won several awards.

In the main profession, I am a consultant, but I do not want to forget to mention my hobbies, which are writing books and photography.
