Achim`s key responsibilities are Lead Advisor for M&A and divestitures, as well as all related activities like Transformation, Reorganization and Interim Management.
Now days, Porters 5-Forces Model is not sufficient to cover the competitive analysis of markets. Therefore, Achim developed the 10-Forces-Model for a holistic market surveillance that offers our customers cutting edge understanding of evolving markets and related eco-systems.
Leading Strategy and M&A departments gave him the opportunity to successfully negotiate numerous M&A projects with different global players of the chemical industry, but also gaining experience with small and medium sized companies as well as venture capital and start-ups.
Starting in Germany, Achim spent most of his career outside Germany (USA, Belgium, France, Bulgaria, South Korea, . . .), allowing him to adapt to different cultures and different ways of business management.
Frequent job rotations also allowed him to gain deep insight in a huge variety of different chemical markets in Speciality and Commodity Chemicals, as well as Mining Industry and Life Sciences.
