Profile

With over 25 years' experience in corporate M&A and valuations, I contribute my expertise in complex M&A transactions and succession solutions for mid-cap companies within the German-speaking area. Through years of trustful collaboration with corporate owners, enterprises, private equity investors and family offices, I can support clients across a full range of M&A transactions and valuation situations.

I am a qualified chartered accountant and as former Vice President Corporate Development / M&A of a German M-Dax company I have a deep understanding of client expectations and the appropriate legal and tax expertise beyond M&A-related topics.

As a member of the Clearwater International Board, I bring my entrepreneurial experience from establishing our German-speaking corporate finance activities to further internationalise and implement the sustainable growth of Clearwater International.
