You probably know Oliver Dachsel as the boyfriend of ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ star Ubah Hassan, but his professional achievements and personal life are as intriguing as Hassan’s. Here is a look at Dachsel’s career and wealth, investment banking, and his life in the spotlight alongside Hassan.
Dachsel’s Life Story
Born in Germany in 1980, Oliver Dachsel graduated with a master’s degree in economics and business administration from WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, one of Europe’s leading business schools. He also completed an executive program at Columbia Business School in New York.
Dachsel’s career in investment is impressive. He currently holds the position of managing director at Jefferies, a prominent New York-based investment banking firm. Having previously served as the senior vice president since joining in August 2016, Dachsel had a notable rise within the company.
Before his tenure at Jefferies, Dachsel gained over a decade of experience at Deutsche Bank, with a focus on energy and natural resources. Over the years, he has played an important role in advising on projects with a combined value exceeding $40 billion. His work focuses on mergers and acquisitions, debt, and equity capital markets transactions.
Dachsel also served in the German Federal Armed Forces with the Mountain Ranger Battalion 232 from August 2001 to June 2002.
Beyond his professional and personal life, Dachsel also contributes to humanitarian efforts. Since April 2020, he has been a board member of All Hands and Hearts, a non-profit organization focusing on disaster and humanitarian relief.
Dachsel’s Relationship with Ubah Hassan
Dachsel’s personal life received media attention following his relationship with Ubah Hassan, the model and RHONY star. The couple’s first public appearance was at the American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala in New York City in 2023, and this marked the end of the secrecy surrounding their relationship.
At first, the private nature of their relationship added intrigue to Hassan’s role on the show. However, it eventually resulted in a dramatic reveal during the show’s season finale.
Ubah opened up about their long-term relationship on the October 8 episode of ‘Watch What Happens to Live With Andy Cohen,’ revealing why she chose to keep their relationship under wraps:
“I think I kept it a secret because I’m so tired because every time I meet someone, I want everyone to see. Like my dog and everyone, and if it doesn’t work, then I have to go back and tell everyone it doesn’t work. I’m so tired [of saying], ‘Oh, it doesn’t work anymore.'”
Cohen also revealed his thoughts on Oliver during the show, describing him as a ‘very handsome, strong, and indeed, a formidable presence.’
Oliver lives in Connecticut and was referred to as ‘Mr. Connecticut’ on RHONY.
