Anyone who has built up a successful company must, at some point, deal with the issue of business succession. Once the founder has left, a company can only continue its operations according to the founder's vision if a succession plan is in place. Contact Hämmerle if you have not yet addressed the issue of business succession.
A properly executed business succession should preserve and secure the company's achievements and also ensure its marketability for the future. For owner-operated companies, there is always a risk of the founder taking ill or passing away. Your life's work may be lost if a business succession plan is not in place, which is why the search for a suitable successor should already begin while you are still active as an entrepreneur. Of course, the topic of business succession is not only relevant in case of sickness or death. Due to advanced age, the owner may no longer be able to continue managing the company.
You can plan, project and structure your business succession with the Hämmerle network. We develop your prioritised entrepreneurial goals in close cooperation with you and envision how your successor will achieve these. Based on these considerations, initial demands regarding the necessary competences and experiences of the successor can already be established: Does your successor have the prerequisites to continue the management of your company in accordance with your wishes?
