ICFG Germany receives Top Consultant Award
Congratulations to our ICFG member based in Germany, Wintergerst Societät für Unternehmer-Beratung (“Wintergerst”), who have been awarded the TOP CONSULTANT title for 2021!
As a result of this award, Wintergerst is now officially amomgst the best consulting firms to Germany’s middle market, and is allowed to bear the title of TOP CONSULTANT from 15th June 2021. Held for the 12th time, the nationwide competition in Germany scientfically analyzed how well the participants had advised their mid-market clients.
The competition is based on a survey of mid-cap companies who have previously worked with the consulting firms taking part in the competition. The clients referenced by Wintergerst provided a range of information, such as the level of professionalism of the consultants, how satisfied they were with the consulting service and whether they would recommend Wintergerst to others.
After being commissioned by compamedia, the research institute, Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung (WGMB – Scientific Society for Management and Consulting) in Bonn, carried out the scientific survey and examined the participants in great detail. According to WGMB, the decisive factor was a “client-oriented consulting approach tailored to the mid-market”.
As a result, Wintergerst is now recognised amongst the best consultants to middle market players in Germany. Since its conception in 2011, the Wintergerst consultants based in both Stuttgart and Hamburg have made a name for themselves on the basis of their expertise in business strategy, corporate finance, M&A and restructuring.
Director Volker Wintergerst commented:
“We are very happy to receive this award. It confirms that our clients feel that we take very good care of them. But it is also an incentive to continue offering consulting services of the highest standard.”
Professor of Business Consulting at the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, University of Applied Sciences, Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink, also heads WGMB jointly with Bianka Knoblach and together they decide who will be awarded the TOP CONSULTANT title.
Prof. Dietmar Fink comemnted:
“It is important that consulting firms know the special needs of their middle-market clients and address these”.
On 26 November 2021, all TOP CONSULTANTS awarded the title in 2021 will come together at the 7th German Mittelstand Summit. The former President of Germany, Christian Wulff, the mentor of the competition, will congratulate each TOP CONSULTANT in person.
