When Company Owner:Innen build companies, they often invest almost every minute of their available time. It is not uncommon for their private lives to fall victim completely for years. This was also the case for Michael Harren. He is a full-blooded entrepreneur, body and soul, and at the age of 30 he and his wife had already built up an impressive online mail-order company: entirely from their own efforts and total dedication. After 12 years of tireless dedication without any leisure time to speak of, Harren decided that he wanted to pass his still comparatively young life's work into new hands so that he could devote himself to new projects in the future.
Thanks to his good nose for fast-moving and sometimes scarce household goods, Harren had built up a handsome customer base via various online marketplaces. Another factor in his success was his logistics, which he had trimmed to maximum efficiency over the years. Efficiency therefore also played an important role in the decision with which partner he would approach the transaction process. Harren chose CARL because of its innovative, technology-based approach, which allows for a high degree of customisation, speed and transaction security. His first contact with CARL was through the digital business valuation, which very quickly helped him to assess the potential of his business for sale.
His greatest concerns were to know that his company was in safe hands on the one hand and to bring the transaction process to its goal quickly and strategically.
