Why we do what we do:

At KERN, we belie­ve that our daily work has the purpo­se of mindful­ly preser­ving, trans­mit­ting and trans­fer­ring the multi-layered values of family businesses into the future.

This is our concre­te contri­bu­ti­on to the preser­va­ti­on and develo­p­ment of values in society.

Values in the sense of attitu­de, being human, respon­si­bi­li­ty, respect, entre­pre­neur­ship, socie­ty, jobs, materi­al assets, identi­fi­ca­ti­on, democra­cy and securi­ty. And also econo­mic and moneta­ry values.

All over the world, family businesses stand for concre­te and tangi­ble values in coope­ra­ti­on and respon­si­bi­li­ty for a social market econo­my. Family businesses are an important link in socie­ty and create stabi­li­ty and prospe­ri­ty in a society.

Our desired profi­le for future KERN experts:

  • Experi­ence in advising small and medium-sized compa­nies, proven M&A exper­ti­se or training is a great advan­ta­ge (We recom­mend e.g. support­ing Ellip­sis ‚SME consul­tant, IHK certi­fi­ca­te in succes­si­on counsel­ling or the Frank­furt School of Finan­ce - without any valuation)
  • Networks / contacts to associa­ti­ons and organi­sa­ti­ons, regio­nal networking
  • High level of indepen­dent commit­ment, profes­sio­na­lism and dedica­ti­on, exten­si­ve sales experience
  • Proces­su­al thinking and acting
  • Leader­ship and modera­ti­on skills
  • Ideal­ly experi­ence as a coach/ trainer or facilitator
  • Confi­dent in negotia­ting at eye level with business owners
  • If appli­ca­ble, focal points of compe­tence within a sector
  • Team-orien­ted work in a network
  • Perma­nent readi­ness for further training
  • Identi­fi­ca­ti­on with the CORE ? Corpo­ra­te mission
  • Focusing on 100% on the topic of business succes­si­on - alter­na­tively a close connec­tion as a KERN consul­tant to a KERN partner location.
  • Optio­nal: Perfect language skills for European count­ries outside of the DACH region for setting up KERN country subsidiaries.
