Christian Saxenhammer, Managing Director and Founder of Saxenhammer & Co., shares highlights from his career in M&A. A big supporter of the use of technology in M&A processes, he appreciates how having an innovative and reliable technology partner who is always available can contribute to the success of dealmaking.
Saxenhammer & Co. is a leading boutique investment bank, headquartered in Berlin. Since it was established over 15 years ago, the firm has advised on more than 230 transactions across all major industries, including mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings, exits, divestitures, and "special situations": transactions that are characterized by complexity, speed, and creativity.
