Curriculum Vitae

Andreas Thümmler founded Corporate Finance Partners Group “CFP” in 1998 in Frankfurt/ Main, Germany. CFP was a leading European Tech & Internet Corporate Finance advisor and was synonymous for expertise and execution in mid-cap Tech Corporate Finance advisory and M&A transactions.

Since inception in Germany in 1998, more than 250 M&A, Private Equity and Venture Capital transactions in the Internet, Media, Telecommunications and Technology sectors were successfully executed by the CFP Team.

As the acting CEO of CFP Group, Andreas expanded into the Fund management sector in early 2008 and established VCDE Venture Partners, a leading growth equity investment fund with a clear focus on technology companies in the fields of software, Internet, mobile telecommunications and IT business services. Besides CFP’s principals and executives, approx. 150 individual founders and entrepreneurs are part of VCDE Venture Partners investor base.

In 2011 Andreas turned his hobby of collecting rare single malt whiskies into a business and started building St. Kilian Distillers, one of the largest German whisky productions to date. Designed and setup by famous Dublin based master distiller David F. Hynes, St. Kilian is the first distillery enabling Whisky fans to invest into their own casks.

In 2015 CFP merged with Acxit Capital Management to form Acxit Capital Partners.

For many years Andreas has been a key supporter, fund raiser and member of the curatorium of the Hamburg based Steps for Children foundation. Steps for Children established several locations in Namibia to support nearly 1000 children with food and education and to enable adults to start their own enterprise in Africa.

Andreas holds a degree in Computer Science and Business Administration from European Business School – Schloss Reichartshausen and has worked as an M&A specialist with Rothschild in Frankfurt and Warburg in London prior to establishing CFP.
