Anne joined Acuity in December 2020, bringing a mix of corporate and investment banking experience across a variety of industries and the first-hand experience of exiting her own start-up. She started her career at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where Anne was part of the DACH region coverage team for large corporates. She advised clients and financial investors on buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions as well as equity and debt transactions including acquisition financings. Anne’s experience of founding, running and recently exiting her Direct-to-Consumer start-up has provided her with valuable insights into both the technical and emotional aspects of a transaction.

Anne graduated as an economist with a focus on behavioural economics and game theory, invaluable experience for any negotiation situation.

“It was a humbling experience to learn that selling a company requires a very different skill and mind-set than founding and growing it. We were lucky to have Oliver Markl from Acuity lead the team, helping us navigate this process that resulted in a successful outcome. They grasped Instrumentation Technologies’ technological edge and team strength in a surprisingly short time, helped us articulate that concisely and supported us throughout the negotiation process with diligence and situational sensitivity. We are extremely pleased to have selected Acuity Advisors – we honestly think we couldn’t partner with a better adviser – and we thank them for their great support.”
