On course for growth with a new M&A team

enomyc is expanding its international M&A business: The new team, with many years of expertise in corporate M&A, distressed M&A and real estate, is a response to the growing complexity in M&A advisory.

“We are delighted that going forward we will be able to provide our customers with a top team for their specific requirements,” says Martin Hammer, co-founder and Managing Partner of enomyc. “All three partners have a long-standing, successful track record and a well-developed network, and will strategically drive our M&A business forward enormously in terms of quality and also in an international context.”

The new team comprises Ian Kayanakis (Head of Corporate M&A, Managing Partner enomyc France), Robert Neufeld (Co-Head Corporate M&A, Head of Distressed M&A), Matias Otto (Head of Real Estate) and Janina Elisa Buchholz (M&A Consultant).

enomyc intends to use the internationality and years of transaction expertise of this experienced, multidisciplinary M&A team for its growth offensive: “In this way, we will expand our presence in strategically important European markets,” says Martin Hammer. “Our objective for the coming months is to focus on larger transactions and the further internationalisation of our projects,” explains Ian Kayanakis, Head of Corporate M&A. In addition to transaction experience, enomyc is relying on operational industry expertise and an outstanding international network to achieve this.

Ian Kayanakis, a lawyer with an additional degree in Global Management (INSEAD), heads international M&A transactions from enomyc's Paris office. He also works as a lecturer for Corporate Finance at EDHEC Business School, Lille. In addition to his experience as General Counsel and M&A Director, he has specific competencies in the areas of M&A, post-merger integration and the management of complex national and international transactions. Since mid-2022 he has been Managing Partner of enomyc's Paris office.

Robert Neufeld (MBA) has been working in enomyc's Distressed M&A division since 2019, after holding positions as division manager and managing director in the automotive supply industry, and has significantly developed this division in terms of personnel and content. During this time he has managed investor processes of various sizes, from the creation of the transaction concept through to the successful conclusion of the transaction. In addition to further market penetration in the Distressed M&A sector, his tasks also include expanding transaction business in SMEs.

Matias Otto is an architect and real estate economist (EBS) and has been responsible for Real Estate at enomyc since 2021. Building on his previous employment at an internationally renowned architectural firm, Matias Otto has been a project developer and branch manager for well-known industry giants, among other responsibilities. His current focal points include transactions in real estate and properties, with numerous interfaces to advisory mandates relating to real estate and, in particular, to the Distressed M&A sector.
Janina Elisa Buchholz is also a new member of the M&A team. She has a legal background and brings with her to the Hamburg office many years of experience and specialisation in transaction and project management, particularly in the areas of company foundation, ongoing business activities and restructuring and reorganisation, as well as financing and M&A processes.
