Head of M&A

Our client is a mid-sized TMT company owned by a renowned international Private Equity fund. The company is pursuing an European expansion strategy through M&A and organic growth. The company is headquartered in Oslo and operates several offices across Europe.

Head of M&A

Group Executive Management – International Growth – Strategy

The new Head of M&A will be a member of the Group Executive Management Team with special responsibility for driving all M&A activities and supporting strategy work in the group.

The main tasks will be:

  • Identify, maintain and develop a target list of interesting acquisition candidates
  • Build relationships and motivate current owners of companies to sell their business
  • Develop the business case and manage the decision processes
  • Responsible for all stages of the M&A transactions
  • Plan and prepare the post-merger implementation of acquired companies
  • Prepare business analysis of markets, competitors, technologies etc. as a base for M&A activities and strategic planning
  • Support the CEO in maintaining and developing strategic plans

The ideal candidate has thorough M&A experience from either Investment Banking, M&A- boutique, Transaction Advisory Services, Private Equity or an in-house M&A team. Additionally, the right candidate must be able to lead and drive transactions from A to Z, often without the use of external advisors. Given that many target companies are small and medium-sized, you should have extensive experience in building relationships and motivating company owners to sell their business, as well as solid finance skills including financial modelling and analysis.
