Co-Founder & CEO
Prof. Dr. Florian Bauer
Co-Founder & Chief Research Officer
Florian is professor of Strategy at Lancaster University Management School, UK. Despite his research expertise in organizational transformation processes, growth strategies, and M&A he is regularly involved in various M&A processes and supports firms in developing acquisition and M&A integration strategies.
"Successful acquisitions start with the acquisition strategy, the acquisition logic, and the right target. In reality, what is usually sought is what is visible – and these are financial figures and ratios. However, acquisitions are strategic decisions and MADiscover starts right here."
Dr. Wieland Alge
Wieland is a multiple entrepreneur in internet security and digitalization technologies. As the CEO of phion and general manager EMEA of Barracuda Networks Wieland has led several M&A transactions from screening, over integrating, to selling businesses. He is now angel investor and co-founder of several new companies.
"Whether or not an acquisition meets expectations is not decided by the integration process, not even by the due diligence. Ahead of that, the target screening process must be strategically designed in order to identify the synergy potential of the targets for achieving more together."
