He specializes in M&A and transactions advisory across all elements of the deal life cycle, focusing on operations, strategy, and organizational transformation in the industrial products, business services, and transportation industries.

Max has delivered a comprehensive program for two merging global industrial products and services companies forming a $2.5 billion revenue group with 12,000 employees. The program helped to accelerate the delivery of the deal thesis as from Day 1 and ultimately allowed the realisation of nearly $100 million in cost synergies.

As a leader of our PrideMatters employee resource group he is involved in several local, European and global initiatives supporting our LGBTQ+ employees and allies

We worked with AlixPartners through a highly complex regulatory period during our acquisition of Waterlogic Group in 2022. Their rigorous approach to working with both parties immediately post signing and through to close enabled our teams to develop a highly robust business case - with buy-in from all stakeholders - that ultimately helped us accelerate the delivery of our deal thesis post-close.
