SKILL SET

You are naturally intuitive with an ability to identify potential acquisition targets. You are tenacious and are able to convince founders to take a meeting with the CEO/CFO or CINO to explore the possibility of being acquired by the group. You are fast thinking, numerate and able to structure a compelling argument both verbally and via email. You have gravitas and authority and whilst we have aggressive acquisition goals, you do not come across as too “salesy”.

  • Intuition, knowing where and how to find the data we’re looking for
  • Ability to communicate why targets should be considered
  • Ability to excite and interest target companies towards being open to being acquired
  • Ability to structure compelling financial arguments in real time
  • Excellent written and spoken English and German language skills. Other languages such as Dutch or Swedish would be an added bonus
