Dr Florian Meise (born in 1970) supervises mergers and acquisitions – namely, the identification, due diligence and implementation of new investment opportunities – together with Thomas W. Probst. He is also responsible for the legal, tax and marketing areas. Also, Dr Meise advises the group companies in creating strategies for success. In 2003, Dr Meise founded ADCURAM Group AG together with his three partners. He has been particularly successful at structuring and negotiating complex transactions in which the interests of various stakeholders often have to be reconciled. Corporations and employee representatives alike appreciate Dr Meise as an open, direct and reliable negotiating partner. Particularly during the early days of ADCURAM, Dr Meise assumed a leading role in the reorientation of individual group companies, such as with the Duran Group carve-out from Schott.
