“I have always admired true entrepreneurs and I can get genuinely excited about companies with a special product or a unique service. A merger or acquisition marks an important step for companies, whether it is a complete sale, or a question of attracting growth capital. I am proud to be able to support a company during this phase. I am not satisfied until my colleagues and I have made the difference.”
“I specifically chose the mid-market sector, which includes the most interesting enterprises for me, due to the personal, emotional involvement of shareholders, the dynamics of a maturing company, and the impact of a successful project on the company. PhiDelphi has made a clear, conscious decision to stay small and to give the team freedom to do whatever is necessary to successfully complete our projects. For me, this means that my colleagues and I can have real impact and offer high-quality M&A service.”
