Solving problems with professionalism and pragmatism
What makes a management consultancy an exceptionally successful entity? On the one hand, it is the expertise and experience of every single consultant. But on the other it is also the cooperation between these resources. As a restructuring expert, Ralf Schmitz spent more than 20 years as partner at the prestigious management consultancy Ziems & Partner. Dr. Benno Hank held various CFO roles in medium-sized enterprises.
Working together in the management consultancy Schmitz & Parnter they form a highly persuasive team that combines many years of experience working in the areas of restructuring, business management and finance.
Ralf Schmitz and Dr. Benno Hank already knew each other from various projects in which they devised and implemented successful restructuring solutions for numerous clients. Along with Stephan Happe who joined in 2019 they bring this dynamism to the market as a team. They are now bringing this dynamism to the market in their joint company. Within this framework, they also make use of their excellent network of specialists and industry experts as well as their long-standing network of banks, credit insurers, funds, unions and legal advisors. This enables them to quickly access specific know-how and speeds up the problem-solving process.
