An introduction to our founder President

by | Apr 13, 2021 | Latest | 1 comment

Hello, My name is Reinhart Menzel, and I was born in Hamburg (Germany).

After business school, learning about being a tax accountant and finishing my learning period in a tax office, I decided not to take over the private tax office from my mother.  Instead, I wanted to travel, experience other countries and learn languages.

In pursuit of knowledge and adventure and my curiosity for different countries, cultures and languages, I went to Spain in 1970 and worked as a guide in tourism for some years. After a while, I was offered the opportunity to take over a business focused on insurance, tax accountant and administration. The office, based in Cala Millor, was a contact point for ex-pats in the regions and so, over the years I didn’t only get the pleasure to work with many different clients from different backgrounds and countries but I also made many wonderful friends.

I have been running the business since 1975.  With the hard work and support from my wife Heidi and my daughter Cristina and two other employees, we provide our services to over 1,000 satisfied ex-pats in the area in languages such as; German, Spanish, Mallorquin, English, French, Italian and Danish.

Two years ago in an extension of the pursuit to support the community, together with Geoff Moore and a few others, we decided to open a Rotary Club in our region. After a long period of planning and logistics and with the help from our charter members and associates, we have managed to be admitted to Rotary international and are now an official club: Rotary Club East Mallorca International.

As a club, we plan to do our best to help the people in our five municipalities and adhere to the rotary slogan of “Service above self”.  We want to help where it is needed with monetary support but also with physical and personal support.

Reinhart Menzel, elected president to 2022 from ROTARY CLUB EAST MALLORCA INTERNATIONAL.
