History

Christopher Noble and Thomas Kaufmann met while attending The International Butler Academy at Kaastel Oost in the Netherlands, one of the most respected Butling and House Management Academies in the world. Christopher and Thomas focused on the "True Art of Service" which included Table Service and Standards, Luxury Goods Maintenance,  Household Management, Etiquette and Protocol, and Wardrobe Management. They found that their individual backgrounds and their related passion for the Butling industry complemented each other’s in surprising, and what turned out to be inseparable ways. Shortly after graduating at the top of their class, Christopher and Thomas were assigned as consultants to the prestigious Wang Jin Yuan Estate in Chengdu, China. This made them eager to cultivate their shared experience to eventually convince their Chinese principal to invest in opening The International Butler Academy China.  After nearly five years of training Chinese students to become "Western Style Butlers", Christopher and Thomas decided to once again forge a new path here in Hong Kong, specializing in personal Butling services for individual and corporate clients alike as well as providing etiquette classes for business and private individuals.  Christopher and Thomas are proud to announce the forming of their joint venture, Noble & Hitsch.

Noble & Hitsch opened its doors in early 2017. Since then, they've facilitated many public events such as Art Gallery showings, Grand Opening Events, New Product launchings, and Media Events.  Noble & Hitsch has given corporate trainings to Real Estate companies and Hotel operators in the Mainland of China and Thailand, and of course, provided wine and cigar training along with etiquette training for clients looking to travel abroad in a private setting.

Partner

Thomas (Hitsch) Kaufmann

Thomas found his natural talent communication and connecting with guests from all over the world high up in the Swiss Alps where he grew up in a Tourist-destination and had the privilege to come in contact with tourists from all over the world at a very young age. A Butler by nature, Thomas sought to further his private service education by joining The International Butler Academy in the Netherlands where he graduated at the top of his class. Based on his outstanding knowledge and exceptional leadership skills, The International Butler Academy dispatched Thomas in May 2012 as consultant to an important Client in China to set up a Butler-Service-System at the most prestigious Real Estate in Chengdu (Sichuan Province). Shortly after he was joined by Christopher Noble with whom he successfully transformed an expensive property into a luxury Real Estate.

After this 6 month consulting mandate, Thomas remained in China to lay grounds on setting up the first Butler Academy in China. In January 2014 Thomas was named CEO of the newly founded Joint-Venture "The International Butler Academy China". After the successful opening and an even more successful introduction of the Butler Academy, Thomas decided in August 2015 that it was time to say goodbye to the corporate life and become an entrepreneur running his own company dedicated to outstanding service, good manners and high class customer attendance. At Jeeves Training LTD. as well as with Noble&Hitsch, Thomas is committed to bring the absolute best and highest quality of service to his clients.
