Without the view from outside, we would probably never have reached our goal so quickly and safely

In the context of my company succession, the merger with a competitor company was the ideal solution. The KERN team, and especially Mr. Koerber, accompanied us sensitively as a moderator and process facilitator and combined the interests of both negotiating partners well. Without the view from outside and the negotiating experience, we would probably never have reached our goal so quickly and safely!

Professional and reliable until successful completion

Especially in the difficult phases, my advisor closed the gaps and paved the way for a further negotiation.
Everything was professional and reliable, meetings outside normal business hours were possible at any time.
Professionally, I feel comprehensive and in good hands, the successful conclusion is an expression of KERN competence!

Speed impressive, form always appropriate to the situation, behaviour honest ...

I would like to thank you very much for your support during the sale of the company. The speed was impressive, the form always appropriate to the situation, the behaviour honest and unpretentious ? it couldn't have been better! Thanks to your support, we were able to conclude this project satisfactorily for all of us.

... We have achieved our goal and can definitely recommend working with KERN.

The KERN team was recommended to me as part of our company sale and, in retrospect, we are very glad to have received this tip. The negotiation process for the sale was complex, lengthy and sometimes threatened by emotional misunderstandings in the outcome. However, thanks to the great experience and skill of our KERN consultant, we achieved our goal and can definitely recommend working with KERN.

KERN has clearly opened a path for my son

KERN's coaching has clearly opened up a path for my son, with which we can now dedicate ourselves together to the project of generational change, in the sense of continuing the family business. We as parents simply cannot convey some things in the same way and help to realise how a professional coach can.

Finally time for a new life plan

Mr Greppmair from KERN assisted me with the sale of my caretaker service in Munich in an always pleasant and very competent manner. In just nine months, he managed to sell my company at a satisfactory price despite falling sales and the Corona crisis. In doing so, he made a decisive contribution to a new life plan that I had longed for for a long time. Many thanks for that!

... are surprised what great energies have been released in all of us

Change also means dealing with the culture, the goals, the responsibilities and the "rules of the game" in a company. With KERN, we have embarked on the exciting path of creating our own individual corporate philosophy and have been surprised at the great energies that have been released in all of us. For the benefit of our customers, employees and the entire company. Thanks to KERN for the targeted and professional moderation and development.
