Alicia_Jording_Succession Consulting

Alicia Jording

Founder & CEO

"I have experienced corporate succession from every possible perspective (acquirer, transferor, generational change, transaction) and I know the insidiousness and difficulties that can be encountered.



I protect other entrepreneurs from falling into the avoidable traps that will cost them a lot of money, nerves and quality of life, but which no other consultant will warn them about. Because they don't know and it's not their area of expertise."

About me

Born and raised in Detmold, I still call East Westphalia my home.


This is also the home of the hidden champions and the family businesses. This is exactly where succession is needed, because many family businesses in this region have a long tradition and are often managed over generations.


Although tradition is very important here, many family businesses in East Westphalia are also heavily involved in innovative technologies and modern business practices. Like me, they have learned to combine their tradition with modern approaches in order to remain competitive.


I completed my training in Germany, France, USA and also my studies in Spain, Malta and Ireland.

Since 2008 I have been a partner in our family business, which is now successfully run by my sister and brother-in-law.
