The story behind sonntag
Up until the establishment of the sonntag company, Thomas Sonntag had a somewhat atypical yet remarkable CV. Contrary to expectations, Mr. Sonntag is neither an economist nor an attorney – he is a historian.
After obtaining his degree, he worked for one of Germany's largest auditing firms and learned all there is to know about the M&A business from scratch. Following further training at the Institut der Wirtschaftsprüfer [Institute of Public Auditors], it quickly became obvious that Mr. Sonntag had the know-how and competence to manage his own branch of the company and assumed the position of managing director. In the late nineties, his plans for self-employment persisted, yet were foiled by a lucrative offer from a renowned bank operating in the field of investment banking. Yet he quickly realized that large corporate structures as well as the settlement of big tickets on the stock exchange did not fit in with his idea of business consultancy. The foundation for the establishment of the sonntag company was laid.
"We distinguish ourselves from our competitors on the basis of the principle of honest market assessment. Market assessment as a price indicator is considerably more realistic than mathematical finance models of purchase price determination."
By 2021, we will be the No. 1 consultancy in Germany in terms of number of company sales with a transaction volume of 10 to 50 million EUR.
