Halder | Ownership Succession and Growth for MidCaps

Mid-Cap Meeting, Hannover, 29. September 2015

Successful development of hidden champions –
supported by private equity

“Hidden Champions” are market leaders from the mid-cap segment – highly specialized, focused on quality, innovative, close to the client and growing. The general public does not know much about them. Hermann Simon provides insight on the potential of professional price management for these firms. Simon has made hidden champions a popular theme and has been a leading consultant on pricing for many years. In addition, two entrepreneurs from market leading companies in turbo gears and the doors business describe ways to achieve a top industry position and how to keep it.
