Business Succession

Family entrepreneurs often ask themselves questions
like these when it comes to succession:

"I don't have a successor in the family. Maybe an external management team is the best solution?"
"I've seen succession failing among friends' businesses because they did not plan well in advance!"
"Should I just sell instead?"
"Will be one of my children really the right fit as a successor?"
"I keep hearing that human factors are crucial: organization, leadership, culture..."
"Would a joint venture be a good idea? But what are the consequences for a shared strategy, organization and corporate culture?"
"The idea of simply handing over my life's work to an external stranger is difficult for me to accept."

Successful succession means passing on the company and thus one's life's work in a well-planned, organized, and future-oriented manner


is not only about numbers, strategy, and business aspects. Above all, human and trust-building factors are crucial


must be well-prepared. One prerequisite is the evaluation and potential adjustment of the entire leadership level and organisation

Crucial to this is the interaction between culture and strategic direction of the company against the backdrop of medium- to long-term market developments

We support the implementation of an appreciative, potential-based business succession together with all stakeholders
