Beat Speck


Beat Speck is a deal enabler for private, cross-border M&A transactions, often in the private equity or venture capital context, but also regularly in industry (especially within the energy, IT, telecommunications, and entertainment industries). This also includes exits through IPOs, joint ventures, and reorganizations.

“Dealing on a daily basis with not only legal, but also economic, tax-related, physical, and psychological challenges fascinates me – the more so the longer I’m in this profession. The focus is on working together with the customer to find solutions in order to make a transaction possible, and not looking for reasons why it won’t work. It's not always easy, but with a little persistence, creativity, and perseverance, you can usually achieve persuasive results.”
