true competence

TrueNorth stands for the conviction to sustainably support our clients with our own and lived management experiences and values.

As a company and as a team, we clearly stand out from the great mass of consultants. Through a noticeable and tangible consistent alignment of our actions with our values.

Our education at first-class universities, personal "polish" in excellently managed companies and in some cases many years of management experience are solid foundations of our consulting work. Many years of work in top management consultancies give us the conceptual strength to analyze particularly complex situations clearly and to develop tailor-made solutions - you will find our project results in your P&L or balance sheet. 

Curious why we call ourselves TrueNorth?

Restrukturierung & Interim Management

Gleich ob Sie in einem rechtzeitigem Stadium eine notwendige oeprative und strategische Transformation anstoßen wollen oder Sie ggfs. bereits im Gespräch mit Ihren Finanzierern über die Erweiterung einer bestehenden Finanzierung, Re-Finanzierung bzw. Ablösung einer Finanzierung oder Frühindikation einer Leistungsstörung sind - Im Blickpunkt stehen in der Regel tiefgreifende Transformationen, Effizienzsteigerungs- und Kostensenkungsprogramme.

Aus unserer Sicht ist nach erfolgter Konzeption (Audit, Independent Business Review oder Sanierungsgutachten gem. IDW S6) grundsätzlich zur Implementierung ein professionelles und straffes Maßnahmenmanagement mit direktem Bezug zu GuV und Bilanz notwendig - Eine vertrauensvolle und angemessene Kommunikation mit den Stakeholdern ist wesentlich für das Gelingen.

Häufig ist der Einsatz als Interim Manager in der Rolle als Chief Transformation Officer (CRO) erforderlich - darauf sind wir gut vorbereitet und gehen erst „von Bord“ wenn die Transformation abgeschlossen ist.

Mergers & Acquisitions and Carve Out

Even today, opportunities for new growth must be explored and new business models must be developed. The value creation structure must be regularly reviewed and adjusted.

Here, all topics of organic growth through strategic and operational realignment take effect, but especially the options for inorganic growth (and also divestments) through appropriate mergers & acquisitions and carve-out measures.
We strongly recommend to initiate both project types with care and sufficient time in advance. As a matter of principle, we carry out very reliable forecasts of dis/synergies and manage your post-merger integration professionally and consistently. We are happy to be judged on this.

Operational Excellence

In the current times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, every company is faced with operational challenges, especially in order to counter technological upheavals and the associated changes in business models (including black swans). The value creation structure and chain must therefore be regularly reviewed and adapted technologically and structurally. The digitization of products and the holistic and digital design (from EDI connection to AI-based decision-making aids/bots) of all processes end2end along the value chain is condicio sine qua non.

It concerns in detail the supply chains for B2B and B2C, the implementation of IT architectures exactly matching this, but also the generally necessary customer- and process-oriented transformation of the structural and management organization. Global/regional value creation structures are monitored via dedicated supply chain risk management systems.

We are at home here and will inspire you with the opportunities - while always staying grounded and convincing in realistic, manageable steps.

true results

Every company has its specific story, which is told in more than just numbers and which deserves our respect. As consulting solitaries, you can basically expect from us tailor-made and resilient solutions that contribute to the long-term survival of your company, with measurable results that you will find in your income statement and balance sheet - and against which we measure ourselves. Please contact us!

true brands

Our customers are medium-sized companies, renowned and well-known players in their segment, often champions in their field. They come from a wide range of industries including consumer goods (FMCG), engineering, media, printing and paper, and healthcare. We support both management and owners, often private equity funds, with always sophisticated, carefully crafted, unique and effective solutions.

As a team, we are proud of a large number of consulting projects, several interim management mandates as CRO (usually in transformation situations) and about 100 M&A transactions.

Discretion is a matter of honor - therefore, we are very happy to give you more information only in a confidential personal meeting.

true values

Our company name is an expression of our values. That is why we have given ourselves a name inscribed with direction and sincerity at the same time: With a clear view of the goal. Cool in thinking and with passion for the cause. True to the facts in analysis, transparent in implementation. And reliable like the gyroscopic compass that indicates true north and which rarely coincides with magnetic north - TrueNorth.
