IOM Advisory brings M&A and energy experts into partner circle


June 27, 2022

- Michael Szadurski strengthens team around Philipp Elsen and Thomas Labryga

- IOM thus creates prerequisite for continued strong growth in the field of medium-sized M&A transactions in the small & mid-cap segment

Düsseldorf, June 26, 2023 - Just 100 meters separate the Rhine and the old building office of the international M&A boutique IOM Advisory, which specializes in medium-sized transactions. Here, 25 M&A experts advise entrepreneurs on sales as well as national and international prospective buyers who want to invest in the German SME sector. IOM Advisory is the exclusive German office of Global M&A Partners, a leading international partnership of independent M&A consultancies.

In addition to international corporations and private equity investors, the majority of our clients are medium-sized companies.

Philipp Elsen, one of the partners and managing director speaks of very much potential in the midmarket: "Especially in attractive sectors such as Business Services, Consumer & eCommerce, Food & Beverage, Healthcare & Pharma, Logistics, Tech and increasingly Energy, M&A advisory services are very much in demand. We feel very well positioned due to our extensive experience in these areas and the addition of Michael as a long-standing industry expert with a lot of transaction experience."

At the same time, the partners want to dispel old clichés in investment banking.

"We are consistently focusing on an all-digital DNA. That means using AI-powered databases instead of Excel wallpapers and golf club networks, digital processes and eliminating data silos" adds partner and CleanTech VC investor Thomas Labryga, who is responsible for the digital strategy.

Michael Szadurski, who previously led international large-cap M&A transactions at E.ON and, together with Thomas Labryga, will, among other things, drive the expansion of the energy and telecommunications customer business, adds: "The focus on M&A in a young, collegial team of highly qualified experts without banker's airs and graces distinguishes IOM. We will continue to grow the mid-market business by targeting new technologies and hiring top talent. I am excited to be part of the team."
