For several years, he has been supporting well-known (family) businesses especially in the areas of strategy and organisation, with a strong focus on owner strategy, succession and the development of family constitutions according to the method of Prof. Dr. Peter May.

His goal is to raise awareness for the importance of family businesses in the Austrian economy and to successfully guide Austrian family businesses into the next generation.

His guiding principle is: “Shaping the future together“. Which means making family businesses successful and ensuring their sustainability. This is not just about the successful handover to the next generation, but also about developing a long-term strategy that takes into account the interests and needs of family members and enables them to work together harmoniously.
