About Anne

Anne studied Law at the Ruhr University Bochum with a focus on commercial criminal law, this is how she first came into contact with M&A transactions. This sparked her interest in the M&A profession, especially from an entrepreneurial perspective and at a business view. After completing her law studies, Anne completed an Executive Master of Business Administration in Mergers and Acquisitions and Corporate Finance. In the time between her first job in M&A and her start at Marktlink, Anne worked for a real-estate company on buy-side transactions.

Anne’s link with Marktlink

“During my study in Mergers & Acquisition and my first job I developed a passion for the entire M&A process with the focus on SME’s. It attracted my interest to get in personal touch with entrepreneurs and learn more about their company as well as their personal story about their business. Furthermore, accompanying the entire M&A process is a great chance to become acquainted with a broad range of sectors and various business models. What I really like about my job at Marktlink is working in a very professional environment with highly motivated colleagues, who are fascinated by the M&A business in the same way.

As the first Consultant for the German office in Düsseldorf, I have the great pleasure to grow with Marktlink internationally and be involved in cross-border transactions between the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. This is a major challenge and requires beside a financial, legal and strategic perspective a good knowledge of the markets of the different countries and individual cultures.”
