My main focus is on renewable energy projects, real estate, automotive and new technologies. I own an investment firm in renewable projects, currently working in projects in Spain, Andorra and Latin America in wind and solar developments.
I am very focused also in strategic advisory and commercial development to companies that need to grow with a multinational scope.
I graduated from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia as Computer Engineer and later specialized in business administration through the Open University of Catalonia.
I am a managing director of Pandion Partners Italia and a founding member of the Pandion Partners Group from November 2000. After receiving my BS degree in Business Administration from Perugia State University, I covered varying positions in M&A before co-founding Pandion Partners Italia in 1995, always with a focus on cross-border, mid-market deals. In this time I have participated in more than 30 M&A transactions, either as a buy-side or sell-side advisor, on domestic and international markets and across a wide range of industries, including health care, energy, chemicals, industrial goods and consumer goods.
I have worked on numerous projects including: manufacturing, automotive components, packaging machines, professional cooking appliances, food and beverage, apparel and fashion, business and financial services and private equity. I am on the board of Blue Dream Srl, a company I founded 10 years ago. We successfully introduced the See Doo range of products of the Bombardier Group in Italy becoming market leaders in this country. We then expanded our range of products to include electric bicycles, ATV and other leisure time products. I hold a degree in Business Administration from the Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi of Milan. Prior to this I studied in Oxford, UK where I obtained the International Baccalaureate.
I studied medicine and therefore specialise in the areas of medicine, med-tech problem solving and analytics. I combine my scientific knowledge with general management skills and have worked in sales marketing projects as well as business modelling and strategy development. I now use this experience in the field of technology M&A.
My advisory experience goes beyond M&A, comprising also process and organizational questions, international post merger integration projects and in part, international strategic and pricing questions and re-organisational topics. Holding a diploma in Business Studies and a doctor’s degree in Economics and Political Science, I have also provided consulting to technology and telecommunication companies. Clients and colleagues especially appreciate my communicative style of working.
I have more than 30 years’ vocational experience of which the last 15 have been spent working as a reorganization and interims manager. In these functions I have held various general manager and board positions particularly in the fields of the old economy. Both M&A and financing topics have been part of my daily business.

Transforming technology into business is my core business and passion. Not all technology must be developed in-house; on the other hand in-house technology might be of high value in different business fields. I help innovative companies improve their strategic value with in-house and acquired technology. I gained my experience over many years working at different companies in leading positions. I can therefore easily identify challenges and offer practical and rational support and workshops.
I have extensive experience in the areas of sales, business development, building and maintaining customer relationships, supply chain and operational excellence. I am able to work effectively and efficiently even under permanent and considerable workload and structural changes. My commitment enables me to meet tight deadlines and ensure successful teamwork.

My principle specialization lies in corporate finance and strategy. That means: assisting in the process of buying and selling of mid-size (family) companies as well as finding finance alternatives in the case that a financier is required. Closely related to this is my interest in creative business development, new ideas, strategic alternatives and visible improvements. For that purpose, I developed a comprehensive analytical advisory model, the Hollebloc Model, an extensive Excel spreadsheet which shows improvements. As a side activity I have extensive experience in teaching financial management courses for non-financials, primarily aimed at the middle management of larger (international) corporations.
During a long period of employment with internationally operating companies in retail, construction and manufacturing, I have served in various managerial and executive finance positions in the Netherlands, Asia, Africa, USA and the Caribbean. In 1999 I made a switch to become a partner in an M&A boutique. I joined CFS Corporate Finance & Strategy as partner and co-owner in 2002. A number of transactions, primarily in energy and manufacturing, have been successfully concluded over the years as advisor to acquiring as well as selling principals. Aside from M&A transactions, my focus lies on advising clients on a strategic corporate level, including restructuring and refinancing of the company.
Since the incorporation of our boutique in 2001, I have executed numerous deals including sell-side, buy-side, MBO/MBI projects and capital raising projects. I am also frequently involved in arranging bank loans. In recent years I have experienced a change in the working relationship with clients from deal making to strategic advisory. Being mainly active in domestic markets, I am specialized in human resource services, printing, publishing, ICT, telecommunication and postal logistics. I also still prepare financial annual reports as a special service to clients.
