My consulting services

Since 2020 in particular, the economic environment has been characterized by unpredictable, multiple massive crises and uncertainties. As a result, companies and in particular small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have come under strong pressure that could threaten their very existence and current business models and  structures must be adapted to these challenges.

In this challenging situation, professional and pragmatic external consulting can provide valuable support to implement „turn-arounds“ and achieve long-term, profitable growth again.  

Based on my extensive (operational) management and consulting experience, I am at your side to provide precisely this kind of advice.

My focus is on personal consulting and, above all, on the results-driven development and implementation of operational projects and measures – in close and trusting coordination with the entrepreneurs and the entire team.

The focus of my consulting services is primarily in the following areas:


M&A (Mergers & Acquisitions)

Planning and execution of company acquisitions and corporate sales. Full process management from market screening and first contacts to the signing and closing of contracts (SPA’s). Including all necessary steps such as due diligence, company valuation, implementation of business plans, contract negotiations, etc.



Analysis, development and operational implementation of detailed "turn-around" projects


Strategy, innovation and growth

Development and execution of focused and consistent
corporate strategies and business plans in increasingly complex
and fast changing markets. With a special focus on innovation, growth,
internationalization, retail and distribution topics


Improved efficiency and cost reduction including financing

Analysis and implementation of efficiency- and cost reduction projects with the target to strongly increase the profitability of companies. Including the revision and improvement of existing financing structures and financing instruments


Brand management, brand development and Distribution

Professional development, implementation and management of brands and distribution concepts. Especially in the segment of fast-moving consumer goods, retail-, luxury- and lifestyle brands


Interim Management, Supervisory or Advisory Board functions

Assumption of interim management functions as well as Supervisory or Advisory Board functions
