Eight Advisory, a leading consulting firm in the Transactions, Restructuring and Transformation spaces, continues its international expansion.

After the launch of offices in Paris, Lyon & Nantes in France, and London, Mumbai and Brussels internationally, and the launch of the Eight International Alliance in 2017 (including partners in 23 countries and 2,500 employees), Eight Advisory continues its growth.

As part of this international expansion, Eight Advisory is pleased to announce the start of operations in Germany. Eight Advisory continues to build a pan-European network, with strong operations in Frankfurt, Paris, London and Brussels, to provide seamless support to both corporate and private equity clients on complex cross-border transactions and transformations.

In addition to its core market Germany, the German office of Eight Advisory will act as hub for supporting clients in the entire German speaking region (Germany, Switzerland and Austria). The ambition is to have a leading role in serving both Corporate and Private Equity clients in this region with a team of 50 professionals in the next 3 years, able to deliver high quality and value added financial and operational consulting services.

Michael Wahl will head the team of Eight Advisory Germany, with the goal of hiring a further 10 employees by the end of 2018.

Michael holds a Master in Industrial Engineering and Management from the Technical College of Munich (1996). He started his career in the audit practice of Ernst & Young in Germany but focused soon on providing Transaction Services to Corporate and Private Equity investors. Michael gained significant international Transaction experience with Ernst & Young in the United States, Hungary and Austria from 2004 to 2011.

Michael and the team of Eight Advisory Germany will be based in Frankfurt am Main and will advise in Transactions, Restructuring and operational Transformation matters. They will complement the 320 Eight Advisory professionals based in Paris, Lyon, Nantes, London, Mumbai and Brussels.

“We are very proud to welcome Michael Wahl, a very experienced and highly regarded Transaction professional”, said Pascal Raidron, President of Eight Advisory. “The opening of the office in Frankfurt will allow us to strengthen our positions to support the operations of companies not only in France but throughout Europe. We intend to continue opening new locations internationally.”
