Advisor in the picture
arry is Crossings’ founding partner. He focuses on mergers & acquisitions and valuation of companies in the industrial, business service, information technology, retail, trade and logistics realm.
Harry specializes in articulating growth strategies for companies that operate nationally and internationally and the role that mergers and
acquisitions, MBOs and MBIs can play. He is also an expert in demonstrating and developing financial models in support of growth strategies and in providing independent valuations and fairness opinions.
Harry started his career in 1994 when he was selected for DSM’s management development program, which gave him the opportunity to contribute to restructuring programs and the sale of business units. Typically in operational positions (often as managing director), he defined and implemented growth strategies, oftentimes followed by a sale, purchase or merger. In various international commercial roles, he set up business units for global businesses. Over the years, Harry has filled pretty much every operational role that the international business community has to offer.
Harry’s broad management experience, in combination with his financial expertise in valuation and his knowledge of the legal aspects of mergers and acquisitions makes him a rare commodity. He can provide a fast and thorough assessment of value and how to increase this, as well as the feasibility of take-overs and participations by third parties, private equity, management, employees or family members.
Harry graduated from Rijksuniversiteit Groningen as a business economist and studied Management & Organization at the Royal Dutch Military Academy (KMA). He also completed an executive program at the Haas School of Business (University of California) that focuses on digital transformation of businesses. He holds the designation of Register Advisor Business Valuation, granted by the Rotterdam School of Management. He is a member in good standing of the Dutch Institute for Register Valuators (NIRV) and the European Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (EACVA).
Harry successfully completed the Grotius Academy’s post-graduate course in mergers and acquisitions for lawyers and legal advisors. This put him in the fairly unique position of being able to offer financial, technical, operational and legal expertise when it comes to mergers and acquisitions.
As a business coach and advisor he is involved in a number of boards at a variety of companies. Since many years he has been helping many clients, many of whom are leaders, entrepreneurs and family business, breaking through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in creating new realities, in creating the life and businesses they want.
