History of Development
CD Invest Consult GmbH was founded by Dr. Harald C. Klien and Dr. Heike Jandl in 2005. Both gained extensive experience in M&A consulting through previous activities and acquired numerous references across different industries.
With their team at CD Invest Consult GmbH they advise purchase and sale transactions of different scale and scope in Austria and beyond. Dr. Harald C. Klien acts as a contact for larger transactions whereas Dr. Heike Jandl is specialized in family businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
In 2006 CD Invest Consult GmbH became a shareholder of the international M&A advisory firm Global M&A Partners, which is ranked no. 6 in worldwide M&A consulting. Global M&A Partners is present in 35 countries worldwide and leading in consulting for mid-size cross-border transactions.
In 2007 the Slovenian CD Invest office was established with the aim to introduce M&A advisory services for SMEs in the former Yugoslav market. From Slovenia, the expansion in the region has been successfully implemented and further offices in Bosnia and Herzegovina (2008), Serbia (2009) and Croatia (2010) were established. CD Invest is the only independent M&A advisory firm with a regional presence in Southeast Europe.
