A passion for restructuring guidance

When AuxilPartner was founded in 2012, Dirk Schlarmann and Dr. Holmer Glietz could already rely on many years of experience as consultants in reorganization and restructuring projects for medium-sized producing companies. Today, with Axel Nordsieck and Jan Duisberg, AuxilPartner consists of four partners, who, together with a team of 30 people, are at your disposal to provide competent advice on reorganization and restructuring.

AuxilPartner was established as a result of our founders' desire to provide companies with more than just theoretical concepts in PowerPoint and slide form. We offer you and your company lasting, implementable concepts for increasing revenue and accompany you in all phases of restructuring. We actively assume responsibility for the binding implementation of the developed measures and stand by you and your company as well as all relevant stakeholders as a trusted partner throughout the entire restructuring period. The preservation of German medium-sized businesses is our passion - emotional, strong in implementation, and competent.  


AuxilPartner focuses on German medium-sized producing companies. We prepare structured company analyses for these companies and draw up tailor-made, holistic concepts for increasing earnings and restructuring by IDW S6 standards - always taking into account the current highest court decisions of the German Federal Court ofJustice. We support you in upcoming structural changes during phases of restructuring and when implementing developed concepts - depending on your requirements, either by providing support and guidance or by taking on interim management mandates.

We especially support family-owned companies in the organization of their business succession and advise them regarding holistic succession concepts and, if necessary, by taking on interim management mandates in the critical areas of CEO, CRO, CFO, and COO. We also assist you in raising equity and debt capital within the framework of structured (re-)financing or to secure expansion plans. We establish contacts with potential financiers from the banking and private equity sectors, accompany the financing process and thus support the management and stakeholders in finding solutions.

OUR Philosophy



The main profitability of German medium-sized companies lies primarily in technical innovation and operational process expertise. This requires close integration of all financial and performance-related corporate divisions. 
Increasing digitization and ecological factors are an interdisciplinary challenge that every company must actively promote to maintain its international competitiveness. As open-minded experts, we support you during reorientation and the further development of your structures. We are at your side across all areas and departments and at all levels of the company. In our highly multi-skilled team, we have the right expertise and methodological competence for every business unit.



With a neutral and exterior view, we look at your company from a different angle. Our experience shows that honesty and transparency towards all stakeholders are the most important factors for the success of restructurings. We develop collaborative analyses and thus achieve the necessary transparency so that everyone is on the same (successful) track, and future earnings can be planned.  The support of the employees and the confidence of the business partners is decisive for the lasting, consistent, and successful implementation of restructuring measures.

Mutual trust


As consultants for medium-sized businesses, we are a reliable partner to guide you and your company safely through upcoming phases of change and to support you actively. Our commitment is aimed at (re-)positioning and strengthening your company and the underlying business model in a lasting way and thus earning your trust. The success of your company is our priority. We are, therefore, always in active communication with all stakeholders to establish maximum trust.

In the past 15 years of my professional career, I have been able to advise a large number of companies in Germany - from medium-sized hidden champions to DAX companies. My passion is the strong support of medium-sized companies in the various phases of restructuring to guide them back on the growth path. During my work as an interim manager (CRO, CFO), I was responsible for both the creation of concepts (reorganization reports according to IDW S6, planning plausibility checks, liquidity planning, Independent Business Review IBR, etc.) and the successful implementation of these concepts and the transfer of the companies into the subsequent growth phase.

My career began with my initial vocational training as a bank clerk. This was followed by my graduation in economics at the University of Bonn, which I completed with honors. I followed this with a doctorate at WHU and the Wharton School of Business. Today, I am still actively involved in research projects on restructuring and crisis management.

Managing Director | Founder


Before I changed to restructuring consultancy, I worked for the Toyota Formula 1 Team until 2007, where I was responsible for the coordination of the production of carbon fiber composite vehicle parts. Subsequently, I worked for several years in a well-known German restructuring consultancy (international) as a project manager for the creation and active implementation of restructuring concepts in the automotive, mechanical engineering and plant construction sectors. In addition to the development of business and performance management concepts, I have since then taken on numerous operational interim and management mandates as CRO (also in the executive body) and actively supported managing directors and stakeholders in regaining the profitability of their companies.

I vouch for the consistent and passionate implementation of advanced concepts, fight at your side for your success and support you professionally in the restructuring of financing solutions and the joint management with your stakeholders.

For ten years now, I have been involved in the turnaround of medium-sized companies that have got into economic difficulties despite excellent products. The regulatory, financial, and economic framework conditions in the globalized economy are the main factors making it challenging to produce and sell your products. With me, you have a partner at your side who can transform all these factors back into a sustainable model following your needs. Thus you can concentrate entirely on the future: The Development and production of world-leading products! You will benefit in particular from my many years of experience in the restructuring of German medium-sized companies and my interdisciplinary, economic, and legal training. On this foundation, I will develop a sustainable concept with you, which we will then implement together in all sectors from administration to production.


To better meet your individual needs and goals, we offer you a variety of compensation models that provide you with security and transparency and make it easier for you to decide on support for optimizing your company's situation. In addition to performance-based remuneration models, this also includes individual satisfaction bonuses: you as a customer decide alone on the payment of these bonuses. We firmly believe in the quality and joint success of our work.

Fix price


Tell us your problem, and we will deliver individual solutions at an agreed fixed price. What we promise, we provide, regardless of our actual effort. Additional charges and additional remuneration for unforeseeable other expenses are not available without prior consultation with us! We deliver agreed results with absolutely transparent payment.



Success is measurable. Measure our success by your success. Together we determine goals and success parameters, and you reward us according to the degree to which we achieve our goals.

Participation model


Do you believe in our joint success for your company? On request, we are happy to offer you long-term remuneration models, in which you can convert our usual fees into company shares. If the conditions are right, we are also prepared to support your ideas personally with further investment and to contribute to the long-term success of your company.
