Über uns

Who we are

BGH-Consulting was founded at the beginning of the millennium as a personnel consultancy for the paper industry. A special feature is still the focused industry expertise, which has been continuously expanded in the course of the last few years to include the adjacent industries, e.g. plastics, mechanical engineering, process chemistry, printing and packaging.
Additional business areas, in particular industry-related management consulting in the sectors of process analysis, strategy consulting, digitalisation, location analysis, M&A, etc. have also been successfully developed.
All the partners in BGH-Consulting have a proven track record of many years of experience in the industry. With the areas of management consulting, personnel consulting and interim management, we offer our customers a perfect portfolio, and stand for successful implementation of what we promise.

BGH-Consulting currently comprises six consultants, who complement each other with their specific backgrounds and together with our motivated team for back office and talent acquisition enjoy supporting our clients. Our customers also receive support from our selected cooperation partners in the areas of potential diagnosis, coaching, SME financing, labour and corporate law, succession planning and market intelligence.

An overview of our services

We have been advising and supporting German and European companies on personnel management and strategic focus since 1999. Our clients trust the experience and industry expertise of our consultants.


Personnel consulting

Choosing the right staff is at the core of every successful organisation!
To create long-term success for companies, we have taken our remit a little further than filling vacant posts with the right specialists or managers. We work out a strategic basis and support you in the development of your workforce and your organisation. This covers all areas of personnel management, precisely tailored to your company, your staff and your objectives.

Corporate consulting

Clearly defined objectives, a sound knowledge of the market and the industry and efficient processes are an integral part of the growth and success of any company. Our experience and industry expertise have grown with our client base over the decades, allowing us to design sustainable, strategic solutions for you. Our approach incorporates
market studies, analyses of the competitors and a close scrutiny of your location, company and processes.


Interim management

When there are major changes in the company  or even a temporary vacancy there is often a lack of personnel capacity, a particular skill or even reliable external support during the transition period. In association with our partner company IES Starnberg, we can put you in touch with a suitable Interim Manager who can provide all the knowledge and skills that you need in your company at this time.


Consultant principles

We abide strictly by the following principles:

Our behaviour is always entrepreneurial

Our behaviour is responsible, stamped in every respect by our entrepreneurial attitude and always in the interests of the client, whom we are pleased to support.

Our focus is long-term

We identify with the aspirations and challenges of our clients, and our aim is to achieve a collaboration that is long-term, personal and thus efficient.

We take responsibility for our work

We know what we're doing – because of our clearly defined processes and the self-assurance of our consultants, we can take the burden off our clients in the projects assigned to us.

Our specialist knowledge

We operate in specialist fields in which we are completely at home. We therefore understand our clients' requirements perfectly and our results meet their needs precisely.

Written agreements

Everything that we do for our clients is agreed in writing beforehand. We stick to these agreements, so that we can guarantee clarity, transparency and absolute reliability, and are in constant contact with our clients.

Our services are measurable

We work on the basis of fixed fees. This means that what we do is results oriented and can be easily measured by our clients.

We work in the interests of our clients

Basically, everything that we do for our clients is governed by the principle of responsibility for safeguarding their interests, both internally and externally.

Discretion goes without saying

All the information that we obtain within the project work is treated as absolutely confidential, of course. We can guarantee this and are happy to document this undertaking in a written confidentiality agreement if required.

We advise our clients in the industries in which we are familiar



All our consultants are specialists in their field and have demonstrated this in management for years, and often for decades. We are convinced that consulting in the industries in which we feel at home can achieve change far more effectively and precisely.

Industries in which we are experts are (in alphabetical order):

  • Apparatus engineering and machinery
  • Electronics and electrical engineering
  • Nonwovens and technical textiles
  • Packaging: Folding boxes, corrugated board, displays, labels, flexible packaging, glass, plastic and metal
