  • Is an entrepreneur himself and therefore knows the views of his clients.
  • Drives processes consistently and simultaneously, because: speed is key!
  • Does not avoid (necessary) conflict: tough in the matter, always in focus: pragmatic & smart solutions and is at the same time maximally binding.

About me:

As a child of the former East, I have always been confronted with transformation experiences and dedicate a substantial part of my professional activity to the topic of change/transformation, be it in M&A or in restructuring/reorganization. Because I am convinced: A company can only survive through ongoing change/adjustment from time to time. Due to my former professional experiences in the restructuring practices of a Big4 audit firm and subsequently in a top strategy consulting firm, I am used to special situations in medium-sized and upper medium-sized companies/corporations. As a Certified Public Accountant (IDW) and a Certified Consultant For Restructuring And Corporate Planning (DStV e.V.), I feel particularly committed to the high ethical and professional standards of my respective profession.

Practice areas:

  • Financial and operational restructuring, in particular concepts according to IDW S6
  • M&A, in particular financial due diligence, company valuation according to DIW S1
  • Financing advisory

Operational priorities (ad interim):

  • Due to regulatory restrictions, only consulting, independent activities – no employment activities such as general representative, CRO, etc.
  • Supervisory Board/Advisory Board

Functional competence and methods:

  • Strategic realignment and top-line improvement
  • Working Capital Optimization / (Radical) Cost-Out / Process Audit
  • (Integrated) Business Planning & Business Valuation

Industry experience:

  • Manufacturing industry, especially mechanical and plant engineering, automotive (Tier 1&2)
  • Real estate and construction
  • Service sector (IT, logistics…)
