CoBe Capital maintains committed teams in strategic European locations so we can more effectively execute transactions across the continent.
An international team
We understand the local culture and have a team on the ground. In our experience, having M&A and operations resources in-country, close to our portfolio businesses, is a key success factor for both acquisition and turnaround. CoBe’s European M&A team, led by Dr. Henning Walf, has developed a deep understanding of how to tackle the myriad of issues that are typically associated with this specific geography. Their expertise includes significant experience in restructurings, human resource and work-council issues and legal and financial requirements internationally. We are well-aware of the sensitivity in Europe to include the participation of the local workforce, community and government, in the transaction and operations going forward.
A global network
To enhance our local knowledge, we always start by working with existing management and employees. And in cases when it’s needed, we utilize our relationships within a country to recruit local industry specialists to supplement an executive team.
