Holger is one of the co-founders and Partner at IDA Group, and an expert in international law and economics. As the lead lawyer in the Transrapid consortium he learnt early on how political decisions can directly impact businesses. This experience, with the rise and fall of the renowned maglev train project, gave him a profound understanding of the importance of Public Affairs – especially in the high-tech sector.
Holger also utilized his knowledge as legal counsel for several global corporations like Siemens or Bombardier and successfully led several projects in countries like Brazil, China or Japan. He consulted several small to mid-sizes companies on their market expansion strategies and has accumulated over twelve years of hands-on experience in international negotiations, trade relations and business strategy.
An entrepreneur at heart, Holger started IDA together with Stefan Borst in 2010 and acts as the group’s Managing Partner. Due to his strong international background and his fluency in five languages, Holger is responsible for the international activities of IDA. In addition to this he also leads IDA’s headquarter in Berlin and oversees all operations of IDA in Germany.
