Welcome!

My name is Mar­kus Huber. I am living in Munich and I have more than 19 years of pro­fes­sio­nal expe­ri­ence as Finan­ce Mana­ger in the estab­lish­ment of Accoun­ting and Con­trol­ling struc­tures for medi­um-sized com­pa­nies and inter­na­tio­nal cor­po­ra­ti­ons all over Euro­pe.

I have spe­cia­li­zed in the are­as natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal Accoun­ting and Con­trol­ling.

As Inte­rim Mana­ger I am an entre­pre­neur, a Mana­ger, a con­sul­tant, a pro­ject mana­ger, and an ope­ra­ti­ve doer in one per­son. I have long-stan­ding and com­pre­hen­si­ve manage­ment and lea­ders­hip expe­ri­ence, as well as ope­ra­ti­ve expe­ri­ence in the area Accoun­ting and Con­trol­ling (from stra­te­gic decisi­ons to Accoun­ting).

You can find more detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on con­cer­ning my com­pe­ten­ces and my care­er in my Vita.

I real­ly would like to con­vin­ce you and your com­pa­ny of my per­for­man­ces.

Many thanks and have a nice day.

Outsourcing Accounting

Small com­pa­nies, medi­um-sized com­pa­nies, and start-up com­pa­nies often only have a limi­ted num­ber of accoun­t­ants for their dai­ly busi­ness. Due to bud­get rea­sons, it is also for inter­na­tio­nal cor­po­ra­ti­ons often not pos­si­ble to employ an expe­ri­en­ced accoun­tant at each location/in each coun­try. The hig­hest time expen­dit­u­re of an accoun­tant is most­ly during/around the monthly/quarterly/annual finan­cial state­ment, as well as during the eco­no­mic audit and com­pa­ny audit. In this com­bi­na­ti­on, it is a good pos­si­bi­li­ty to par­ti­al­ly out­sour­ce the Accoun­ting (fix agree­ments).

  • Through fix agree­ments and con­fi­den­tia­li­ty agree­ments, safe­ty is gua­ran­te­ed for both sides.
  • Estab­lish­ment and rea­lign­ment of the Accoun­ting accord­ing to the needs of the decisi­on maker(s)
  • Expan­si­on of the Accoun­ting as nee­ded — HGB/US GAAP/lFRS/local GAAP — addi­tio­nal cur­ren­ci­es etc.

I will be rea­di­ly avail­ab­le for you with my com­pre­hen­si­ve expe­ri­ence in this area.

Outsourcing Controlling (FP&A)

Small com­pa­nies, medi­um-sized com­pa­nies, and start­up com­pa­nies often have no Controller/no Con­trol­ling depart­ment. Due to bud­get rea­sons, it is also for inter­na­tio­nal cor­po­ra­ti­ons often not pos­si­ble to employ a Con­trol­ler at each location/in each coun­try. The hig­hest time expen­dit­u­re of a Con­trol­ler is most­ly during/around the monthly/quarterly/annual finan­cial state­ment, as well as during the plan crea­ti­on for the fol­lowing year. A good pos­si­bi­li­ty is the out­sour­cing of the Con­trol­ling (fix agree­ments).

  • Through fix agree­ments and con­fi­den­tia­li­ty agree­ments, safe­ty is gua­ran­te­ed for both sides.
  • Estab­lish­ment and rea­lign­ment of the Reporting/Controlling accord­ing to the needs of the decisi­on maker(s)
  • Expan­si­on of the Repor­ting as nee­ded — HGB/US GAAP/IFRS/local GAAP — Manage­ment Repor­ting — addi­tio­nal cur­ren­ci­es, etc.

Corporate Controlling

Markus Huber Interim Management Finance & Controlling

Through growth, take­overs, or inter­na­tio­nal ori­en­ta­ti­on, a new Accounting/ Con­trol­ling struc­tu­re would be necessa­ry which builds on the cur­rent Accoun­ting sys­tems. A com­plex soft­ware solu­ti­on is often very expen­si­ve and needs a lot of lead time.

My pro­ven method for a quick estab­lish­ment of a company’s Con­trol­ling:

  • Estab­lish­ment of a uni­form stan­dard chart of accounts with descrip­ti­on (dif­fe­rent companies/countries/languages/currencies)
  • Defi­ni­ti­on of coun­try codes/company codes/account numbers/departments/cost cen­ters
  • Estab­lish­ment of the Accounting/Controlling/Reporting accord­ing to the needs of the decisi­on maker(s)
  • Expan­si­on of the repor­ting accord­ing to US GAAP/IFRS/local GAAP

I will be rea­di­ly avail­ab­le for you with my com­pre­hen­si­ve expe­ri­ence in this area.

Project Controlling

Most pro­jects have a fix time and cost plan which is often only dif­fi­cult to adhe­re to with the help of the inter­nal employees. You need sup­port for a cer­tain pro­ject in the Accounting/ Controlling/Financial area?

Take­over of pro­jects in the Controlling/Financial area (fix agree­ments):

  • Through fix agree­ments and con­fi­den­tia­li­ty agree­ments, safe­ty is gua­ran­te­ed for both sides.
  • Establishment/coordination/control of the pro­ject accord­ing to spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on or inde­pendent­ly

I will be rea­di­ly avail­ab­le for you with my com­pre­hen­si­ve expe­ri­ence in this area.

Advantages Interim Management

Even if each indi­vi­du­al sta­tus quo of a cli­ent is dif­fe­rent, the main advan­ta­ges for employ­ing an Inte­rim Mana­ger remain the same:

  • Short-term avai­la­bi­li­ty
  • Fle­xi­bi­li­ty
  • Expe­ri­ence in dealing with dif­fi­cult situa­tions
  • Long-stan­ding manage­ment know­how
  • Tem­pora­ry work
  • Neu­tra­li­ty
  • Prag­ma­tic solu­ti­on approa­ches
  • Take­over of respon­si­bi­li­ty for its actions

Thus, the approach of the Inte­rim Mana­ger signi­fi­cant­ly exceeds the approach of the com­pa­ny con­sul­tant.

One fur­ther important ele­ment for the accep­t­ance in the team of the cli­ent is that none of its employees has to fear that “the new one” wants to have her/his job, becau­se the Inte­rim Mana­ger only wants to per­form its tem­pora­ry work.

Accord­ing to task and indus­try, the may­be mis­sing spe­ci­fic com­pa­ny know­how may be a dis­ad­van­ta­ge. On the other hand, this sup­po­sed weak­ness may turn out to be a pro­noun­ced advan­ta­ge.

What is Interim Management?

Inte­rim Manage­ment is sim­ply for­mu­la­ted “Tem­pora­ry Manage­ment”. The work of the Inte­rim Mana­ger is a tem­pora­ry work (as a rule 6 — 12 mon­ths) to streng­t­hen, i.e. sup­port your Management/your ope­ra­ti­ve are­as. Rea­sons may be the tem­pora­ry fil­ling of a vacant posi­ti­on or a spe­cial situa­ti­on in which your com­pa­ny may cur­r­ent­ly be in and for the solu­ti­on of which spe­cial know­how is nee­ded. The need may in each pha­se of life of a com­pa­ny ari­se from the most dif­fe­rent rea­sons.

The Inte­rim Mana­ger is an entre­pre­neur, a Mana­ger, a con­sul­tant, and a pro­ject mana­ger in one per­son.

Reasons for Interim Management

The rea­sons for my work as your Inte­rim Mana­ger may be of the most dif­fe­rent kind. Examp­les:

You have to tem­pora­ri­ly fill a vacant Manage­ment posi­ti­on, e.g. becau­se fil­ling this posi­ti­on on a short term is cur­r­ent­ly not pos­si­ble.

You have to tem­pora­ri­ly streng­t­hen your inter­nal staff resour­ces, e.g. for the per­for­mance of pro­jects or the intro­duc­tion of new pro­ducts (bes­i­des, mixed teams — internally/externally — are often espe­cial­ly suc­cess­ful and also quicker with regard to the imple­men­ta­ti­on).

Your com­pa­ny needs spe­cial know­how which is not or only limi­ted avail­ab­le, and which is eit­her only nee­ded for a short time, or which shall be trans­fer­red by the Inte­rim Mana­ger intern­al­ly.

You are plan­ning a com­pa­ny take­over or a com­pa­ny sale, a relo­ca­ti­on of ope­ra­ti­ons, an out­sour­cing, an inte­gra­ti­on, or a joint ven­ture for which you are loo­king for sup­port.

You are a young or quick­ly gro­wing com­pa­ny and need start-up sup­port or sup­port with regard to the estab­lish­ment or pro­cess orga­niz­a­ti­on, or sim­ply tem­pora­ry sup­port with regard to the tack­ling of dai­ly manage­ment chal­len­ges.

Is the­re a total­ly other spe­cial situa­ti­on in your com­pa­ny which was not men­tio­ned here and which needs a solu­ti­on? Plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct me.

Expe­ri­ence shows that an indi­vi­du­al solu­ti­on approach is nee­ded for each sta­tus quo. I will be hap­py to offer you a non-bin­ding first con­sul­ta­ti­on.
