H&Z ist Top Consultant 2023 für den Bereich Strategie & Performance

H&Z has been awarded the TOP CONSULTANT seal 2023. Former German President Christian Wulff presented Steffen Wenzel, Michael Santo and Patrik Soltendieck with the trophy at the award ceremony during the German SME Summit in Augsburg on Friday, 23 June. 


How can a medium-sized company position itself as optimally as possible on the market and become an interesting supplier and development partner for major customers, especially corporations? The consultants at H&Z Management Consulting are often confronted with this question. The consultancy has long been more than a classic procurement consultancy - it supports medium-sized companies, especially from technically oriented sectors, in all questions concerning their business model.


The company's approximately 150 consultants are valued partners of their clients and are regularly recommended by the companies. And those who have once carried out a project with the consultants usually hire them again: the repeat rate is currently 97 %

Why are the consultants so popular with their clients? "The decisive factor is the basis of trust, and this is created when the client realises that you really know and understand him, his industry and his environment," explains Managing Partner Michael Santo.
