Frank N. Stolpmann

Partner and Managing Director

I have gained my expertise in the implementation of national and international M&A transactions through many years of management positions in the M&A sector at banks, advisory firms and international technology companies. For more than 25 years, I have also been able to accompany numerous corporate succession plans in medium-sized companies. For the last 20 years, I have also successfully completed complex, time-critical asset deals in insolvency situations.

Personal Interests:
I enjoy travelling with my family to get to know countries, cultures and cuisine, lots of exercise, preferably in outdoor sports such as hiking, golfing, sailing, alpine skiing, driving across the country in a convertible or visiting an interesting art exhibition, or cooking something delicious in peace and quiet and enjoying a good cigar afterwards. Besides my job and family, I have also been active in the D-Carlstadt Lions Club for over 15 years, most recently as President in 2021.
