Happy Birthday – AdEx Partners turns 5 years „old“

AdEx Partners was formally founded with the entry into the commercial register of the city of Hamburg on March, 6th 2012. This Monday AdEx Partners celebrates its 5th company anniversary.

5 years AdEx Partners – we are looking back on 5 years of great partnership with our clients, colleagues and network partners. We are especially proud of a team of excellent colleagues and to “live” our core values every day.

The AdEx story started with the vision to become “Trusted Advisor” for companies and to accompany our clients with experienced and highly skilled colleagues in managing complex, global and trend-setting projects. That idea was in particular shaped through the realization, that companies have an increasing demand for true “partners” to top management level who realize critical success factors at an early stage and proactively provide clear decision and action recommendations.

The name of the company results from Advisory Excellence!

In order to be a partner with in-depth industry and functional expertise we put emphasis on a balanced and future-oriented growth from the very beginning. During the first year after the foundation the two founders Carsten Kracht and Ferdinand Weiss stayed alone. Their focus was to successfully position the company in the market, to set the right strategic direction and to establish a first client basis. The business idea was confirmed with a turnover of nearly one million Euro within the first fiscal year. In spring 2013 the first employees were hired and by the end of the year the AdEx team consisted of seven employees. At the end of 2014 the number of employees had already grown to 20 highly qualified colleagues.

From the very beginning we wanted AdEx Partners to be a true partnership and this stayed like this until today. Teamwork, mutual support and networking became the key factors for our success. We have very high standards of quality and never lost sight of this. Continuously, AdEx Partners is searching for the best talents, always with the goal to promote both their professional and personal development.

Today we have a team of 80 permanent employees and freelancers and provide our clients a top level quality with the goal to further increase it.

Also the number of clients who trust in the expertise and consulting service of AdEx Partners is increasing continuously. In 2016 alone, we supported more than 40 clients to make their projects even more successful. To make this possible we have local offices in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with the intention to expand into more European countries.

Besides the expansion of our sites we also focus on growing in new industries, for example financial services and insurances. This sector will be extended with a team of consisting and new colleagues in 2017. Also new topics like digitalization or SAP HANA have our attention and we proactively increase our manpower in these areas.

AdEx Partners is a relevant and important partner for our clients and provides quality with experience and high proficiency of their employees. Doing this AdEx Partners is always independent and authentic.


“We would like to thank our clients, employees and partners for the cooperation and trust and are looking forward to the next surely very exciting years.”
