We are delighted to announce the successful sale of schillingpartners, a leading executive search firm based in Zurich, to the operating partners.

Wineus accompanied the sale and financing structure as part of a succession plan initiated by the owner Guido Schilling. With the transaction, Guido Schilling sold a majority stake in the company to his long-time partners Malte Müller and Gilgian Eisner. Guido Schilling will continue to be involved in the company as Chairman of the Board of Directors, focusing on non-executive and selected top executive management positions. Malte Müller, who has been with the company for 10 years, will assume the role of the Managing Partner. Looking ahead, the company is committed to further expanding the team and becoming the number one executive search firm in Switzerland.

Wineus has successfully managed the entire transaction process and financing structure on behalf of all parties.
