Franz Günther

Franz Günther founder and sole managing partner of Corporate Consulting & Interim Management GmbH (short: CCI MANAGEMENT).

Mr. Günther established Corporate Consulting & Interim Management GmbH (CCI MANAGEMENT) in 2001. According to the company name with the components "Corporate Consulting" and "Interim Management" he combined his practical management experience with a track record in both the industry- and consulting-sector with focus in particular on Mergers & Acquisitions- and strategic alliance-projects as an integrative approach to strategic management.

Mr. Günther started his professional career with Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu KGaA, Munich, Germany, a Munich brewery, as Executive Board Assistant and Head of Special Projects with projects such as Organizational Development- and Mergers & Acquisitions-projects.

Subsequently, Mr. Günther entered into the management consulting-business where he most recently worked at Knight Wendling Consulting GmbH, Düsseldorf, Germany as Business Area Manager in charge of the business area Business Effectiveness. During that time, Mr. Günther developed and applied new special management techniques, whereby he combined strategic consulting methods with efficiency improvement methods and enterprise value assessment methods as a fully integrated approach, and executed this new holistic approach in different projects and lines of business.

After his time at Knight Wendling Consulting, Mr. Günther joined H. Bahlsens Keksfabrik KG, Hannover, Germany, a leading brand manufacturer of sweet biscuits and savory snacks in Germany and Europe with worldwide export markets. Here he took over in the Management Holding the position as Area Manager in charge of Strategic Controlling and Group Wide Projects. Among other tasks, he was in charge of the restructuring and separation of the company group into two business units: "Sweet Biscuits" and "Savory Snacks". Both business units were thereby realigned in the market as two stand-alone companies.

Prior to founding CCI MANAGEMENT, Mr. Günther was a senior officer at W. F. Kaiser u. Co. GmbH, Diez/Lahn, Germany, a brand manufacturer of baking pans and accessories with an international leading position in the high-ended market, as Management Board Member (Chief Financial Officer), and as Executive Board Chairman in the meat & sausage-industry with Andreas Sieber GmbH Wurst- und Schinkenspezialitäten, Geretsried/Munich, Germany, a company that produces famous Munich specialties such as Munich Veal Sausage and other sausage- and ham-specialties. With Kaiser, Mr. Günther carried out a complete outsourcing whereby the internal outbound- and warehouse-logistics was split off and transferred to a newly established logistics company as a subsidiary of a new, external logistics partner. At Sieber, Mr. Günther redesigned the order processing chain, whereby the internal shops were separated from the company and transferred to single operators on the basis of a specific franchise concept.

Mr. Günther studied at Technische Universität München, Munich, Germany, brewery and beverage technology with the main emphasis on food technology, mechanical engineering, chemistry, microbiology, process engineering and energy engineering with a university graduation as Dipl.-Ing. Univ., as well as economics with a main emphasis on management techniques, business management, national economy and law with a second university degree as Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Univ..




GLOBALSCOPE International M&A Advisors Update


31 October 2019

“Never had more deal referrals in a conference than this one…” Franz Günther, CCI MANAGEMENT.

This comment, overheard during the closing lunch of Globalscope’s Fall Semi-Annual Conference, says it all. Delegates from across the world, gathered in New Delhi, India, with a sense of “Vasudhaiva Kuthumbakam, 1 Global Family”, as described by Co-host Hari Iyer, Director of a’XYKno Capital Services.

Members collaborated on international deal mandates with fellow members, discussed global industry trends and developed a deeper understanding of India’s M&A landscape. Co-host RCS Advisors’ CEO, Kamal Rungta commented, “We expect, based on our members’ first-hand experience of India, more opportunities for their clients between India and rest of the world”. During the 3 day conference, members presented over 100 deal opportunities across six main sectors on behalf of their clients. This conference also launched a new specialist group, focused on Renewable energy sector deals – an increasingly prominent area in which we add value for those we represent.

This was the 26th Semi-Annual Conference. The Globalscope Members have not only collaborated on cross-border mandates but also enjoyed the wonderful culture of India, and from the guest speakers, Invest India and Trilegal, gained great insight into the rapidly developing opportunities for M&A and doing business in India.” Munich, Germany will be the setting for the next Global scope Conference, in April 2020.
