Professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal has appointed Patrick Siebert as a Managing Director and head of its Corporate Transformation Services practice in Germany. Siebert returns to the firm he previously served for over four years.
After graduating from EBS Universität, a private research university for business and law based in Frankfurt, Patrick Siebert started his career in banking with Commerzbank. After two years with the bank he moved over to the consulting industry, joining Droege Group Management Consultants (previously Droege & Company), a German-origin consulting firm founded in 1988, where Siebert spent three years as a management consultant. Early 2009 he joined Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), spending four years at the consultancy, growing to the role of Director. The past four years Siebert worked for KPMG as a partner in its Transaction & Restructuring service line.
Per the November, 1 2016 Siebert has decided to return to Alvarez & Marsal, stating “The firm has grown and evolved over the past few years and I look forward to playing a role in helping to accelerate the pace of growth.” In his role as Managing Director, Siebert has been tasked with leading the firm’s Corporate Transformation Services across Germany. He is based in Hamburg – one of Alvarez’s three German bases besides Frankfurt and Munich.
Siebert brings more than twelve years’ senior management experience in transformation, restructuring and operational improvement advisory services to Alvarez & Marsal, as well as interim management experience in restructuring roles. He has gained his experience across multiple industries including power and utilities, publishing, automotive, industrial goods, retail and aerospace.
Thomas Kolaja, Managing Director and Co-Head of A&M’s European Corporate Transformation practice, comments: “Our presence in Germany has grown substantially in recent years as European companies turn to us to deliver performance improvements when conventional approaches have failed. Patrick will significantly enhance our offering in a rapidly growing corporate transformation practice and we are delighted that he has returned to work for the firm.”
Last month A&M launched an Information Governance unit in Europe, based in London.
