Dr. Holger Wiemann


With my international and sectorial expertise as a senior executive, entrepreneur, tech investor and M&A advisor I am looking forward to support you on transactions across a variety of sectors, with a particular focus on the media/ communications and exhibitions industry, any kind of digital business, software and healthcare.

Corporate value can be substantially enhanced by both internationalization and digitalization. For many companies carefully identified and successfully integrated acquisitions have proven to be the fastest way to get there. Buy and sales-side transactions require a pragmatic handling of the process as well as seniority combined with deep sector expertise and an excellent national and international network in order to minimize disruption within the business and to maximize price. We have the required skills. Let us become “active” on your behalf!
