"On behalf of Hubert Burda Media, I would like to thank you for your project management work in connection with the liquidation of one of our foreign subsidiaries (...) The breakthrough achieved by you in the negotiations (which had been deadlocked up until that point) with an investor interested in shares of one subsidiary to be sold, as well as negotiations with our landlord, played a major role in this. On the basis of this very positive experience, you will be our first contact if we have similar projects in the future."
