Noble & Hitsch



Christopher Noble and Thomas Kaufmann met while attending the International Butler Academy at Kaastel Post 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 others 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 Chines 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, specialising in personal Butling services for individual and corporate clients alike as well as providing etiquette classes for business and private individuals. Christopher and Thomas as proud to announce the forming of their joint venture, Noble & Hitsch.

Noble & Hitsch opened its doors in early 2017. Since then they have facilitated many public events such as Art Gallery showings, Grand Opening events, New Product launchings, and Media Events. Noble & Hitsch have given corporate training 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
