Held in 2016 for the seventh time, the competition awards prizes to Germany’s best consulting firms in the categories of Restructuring, Competition Strategy, Supply Chain Management, Financial and Risk Management, M&A, Marketing & Sales, and IT Management and is one of the most prestigious prizes on the German consulting scene.
Ebner Stolz received the Best of Consulting award for its support in the strategic restructuring of HEIDEMARK, Germany’s leading turkey producer and processor. At the time Ebner Stolz was engaged, HEIDEMARK was a complex group of companies that had experienced rapid growth, with revenue of EUR 700 million, over 2,000 employees, and 85 entities. By concentrating on the successful elements of the business model and optimizing value creation, revenue-boosting consolidation was achieved in 24 months and the scene was set for the company’s continued development including the intended succession plan.
This award follows on from Ebner Stolz’s success in 2015, when the consultants took third place in the same category for providing advice and support to Landgard, Germany’s leading marketer of flowers and plants, as well as fruit and vegetables.
This year, the distinguished jury included Dr. Ulrich Becker (Managing Director, UBS), Dr. Wolfgang Colberg (Partner, CVC Capital Partners), Dr. Christian Langer (Managing Director, Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services GmbH), and Alexander Meyer auf der Heyde (Head of Inhouse Consulting, Bayer Group).
