Service Description

I am glad to offer a broad array of basic and added-value Finance services, including accounting, controls, M&A, investor relations, to name but a few.

Apart from being a seasoned professional in Finance & Accounting, I am also experienced with special topics, such as strategy processes, M&A projects, restructuring and reinvention, and financing, including venture capital and MBOs.

Services can relate to business as well as private purposes, such as security analysis in the context of private investing.

Uncompromising service quality is built on the experience of a practitioner as well as an academic, who just obtained his postgraduate degree and is an avid reader of the Harvard Business Review, among other relevant and topical literature.

Also, as an Austrian I am fluent in German and have reasonable command of additional European languages. Therefore, translation and similar services are part of the package, as well.
