As the fourth consecutive generation of German and Austrian immigrants that voyaged to the United States, Edward was born in 1972 near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland and traveled to Germany as a member of a summer foreign exchange program in 1988. He graduated in 1995 from Towson University with honors from his undergraduate studies in Psychology and Business Administration.
After working in Marketing Strategy and being promoted into Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) at Lafarge North America (now a part of LafargeHolcim) with a series of business development and corporate integration assignments, Edward concentrated in Finance and Marketing at The George Washington University’s full-time MBA program where he graduated in 2002. His next move was from the colorful Indian Summers of the East Coast to the sunny beaches of Southern California where he managed international corporate finance and planning projects at James Hardie by day and studied German at night.
Accepting an offer in 2004 to work in Germany with the accounting firm KPMG, Edward went on to advise clients in diverse industries on a host of international corporate and private equity M&A transactions. This led to him to accept an offer at Süd-Chemie’s global headquarters in 2008 where he worked as Director of Mergers and Acquisitions overseeing the transaction needs of the group’s portfolio of 118 consolidated companies. This included the vendor due diligence, valuation, and fairness opinion for Süd-Chemie’s auction that resulted in Clariant’s acquiring the business for a total consideration in cash and shares of €2.1 billion.
After the purchase, Edward then worked with the acquiring Swiss chemical company Clariant on continuing M&A projects. To prepare as an entrepreneur and business owner in Germany, Edward intensely studied German full-time for a year and in November 2014, founded Monumental Exchange in Munich to advise clients on M&A deals and international Market Expansion opportunities with special focus on the USA and German-speaking countries.
Edward enjoys working with international clients, attending cultural events, and spending time with his family outdoors. His management style is characterized by others as communicative and driven to make astute decisions.
