Since 1995 his focus is on advising owners and investors of mid-market companies in divestments or acquisitions. He has advised over 50 transactions with owner managed and family owned companies and has thereby gained a very deep understanding of how to lead M&A transactions in this special market segment to a sucess.
Before founding REDHILL Corporate Finance he was Partner of CAPEO GmbH, where he was responsible for the corporate finance business for 13 years. Previously, he was partner at Sannwald Jaenecke & Cie., a Munich-based M&A boutique where Merryl Lynch had acquired a shareholding in order to gain access to the mid-cap know-how of the partnership. He started his career in corporate finance in 1995 at Dr. Ferber & Partner GmbH (today Ferber & Co). Kai Sessinghaus has studied business administration in Regensburg and Berlin and completed his studies as Diplomkaufmann with an honors degree.
He is very familiar with the specific challenges with M&A projects in the Mittelstand, in particular with owner-managed and family owned companies for over two decades. Furthermore, he is well known for excellent negotiation skills, in particular in difficult M&A situations such as 1:1 negotiations or distressed situations.
Kai Sessinghaus is also active as an investor. As an owner and investor, he is used to entrepreneurial thinking and result-driven acting.
All projects of REDHILL Corporate Finance are personally managed by him as Managing Partner. He is supported by a highly qualified team of professionals. All professionals have extensive M&A experience and worked on small- and mid-cap transactions for many years.
