I understand that as a business owner, you are looking for the best value for your business whilst ensuring cost and time investment of the transaction is kept to a minimum.
I also understand that your legacy, employees, customers and suppliers are important aspects to protect.
I am an engineer with over 18 year experience in global footprint expansion, business management and investment analysis. I have lived and worked in Australia, China, Italy and now in the Netherlands. I have a background in industrial automation, engineered products and semiconductors.
Based in Weesp, near Amsterdam, I have worked as Head of Operations and General Manager for a number of technology businesses in which I performed several technology transfers, business turnarounds and divestment operations globally. Most recently, I have founded Lontaine, an artificial Intelligence platform aimed at predicting disease and managing health logistics.
I am now focused on the acquisition, investment and restructure of established businesses. My aim is to engage in a straight forward win-win transaction for both the seller and myself. The M&A world can be bogged down with lawyers, accountants and external advisors, that whilst still needed, my approach is to sit down with business owners and draft a mutually beneficial deal that leaves both parties feeling positive and in a position to achieve personal goals.
I deal exclusively with owners and operate under the outmost confidentiality and reservation. All agreements are simple and drafted mutually and in the spirit of working towards improving, growing or rescuing businesses.
I look for businesses where I can add value or integrate in the portfolio of other investments, in general, I look for business that:
1. Have proven track record (>5 years)
2. Have a strong management team in place
3. Have a good growth potential
Partnerships are a great way to offer sellers a better deal, Currently, I am looking to collaborate in the following areas:
1. Deal Sourcing
