Leap into the consultant elite through personal consulting and smooth transactions: VIRETUM CONSULT has been awarded the TOP CONSULTANT seal 2021. This makes the firm one of the best medium-sized consultants in Germany and it has been allowed to carry the seal since June 15. For the 12th time, the nationwide TOP CONSULTANT competition examined on a scientific basis how well the participants advised their medium-sized clients. The winners of the competition were presented today by manager magazin.

The basis of the competition is a survey of medium-sized companies that had previously worked with the participating consulting firms. The reference customers named by VIRETUM CONSULT provided information on, for example, how professional the management consultants appeared, how satisfied they were with the consulting services and also whether they would recommend VIRETUM CONSULT to others. On behalf of compamedia, the Scientific Society for Management and Consulting (WGMB) from Bonn conducted the scientific survey and took a close look at the participants. According to WGMB, the decisive factor is "a customer-oriented, medium-sized business consulting service" (further information on the test criteria can be found at

VIRETUM CONSULT has made it and is one of the best consultants for medium-sized businesses. Since the foundation of the company in 2014, the Pullach-based firm has made a name for itself. Its offer is aimed at medium-sized companies, high-tech start-ups as well as private and institutional investors with a focus on the D-A-CH region. Capital procurement, purchase, sale or merger (M&A) of companies and the management of corporate investments are considered core areas of consulting.

Even before VIRETUM CONSULT was founded, the owner, Hanns-Peter Wiese, had conducted dozens of transactions himself as a founder, buyer and seller; therefore, he knows the concerns of all parties involved from the various perspectives very well. Both traditional companies and start-ups with innovative products and business models are the focus of VIRETUM CONSULT's consulting services. The variety in dealing with both corporate cultures makes the consulting work particularly exciting - and all client groups benefit mutually. In the case of Start-ups & Grown-ups, the focus is mostly on raising capital. The topics of M&A and business succession, on the other hand, are more likely to be found in established medium-sized companies.
  • Valuable experience
For transactions in a national or international context, VIRETUM CONSULT can draw on many years of own start-up and management experience as well as insider knowledge from both private equity and venture capital.  Know-how in this constellation and breadth is rarely found in boutique consultancies, if not unique, as the consulting guild in this field is mainly composed of former investment bankers or management consultants.
  • Never by the book
At VIRETUM CONSULT, no senior partner lands the projects and hands over the actual work to juniors for completion. VIRETUM CONSULT's claim is to consistently develop personal & individual solutions to meet the financial as well as strategic challenges of its clients.  During the implementation it attaches highest importance to open communication, transparency and last but not least to a humane tone. This usually leads to smooth processes and a fair cooperation.
  • Client-oriented implementation
Consulting at VIRETUM CONSULT is characterized in particular by entrepreneurial thinking and a high degree of process know-how. The goal is to implement practicable solutions and market-oriented strategies together with the client. For this purpose, the initial situation and concrete objectives are always defined at the beginning of the project. Thereafter, VIRETUM CONSULT supports the client like an external staff department and orchestrates and accompanies the entire process from start to finish.

On November 26, there will be another reason to celebrate: then all top consultants of the 2021 cohort will come together for the TOP CONSULTANT finale as part of the 7th German SME Summit. As mentor of the competition, former German President Christian Wulff will personally congratulate each top consultant.
