Abstract

In January 2019, Florian vom Bruch was brought in as the first external CEO to lead the privately-held luxury watch winder and safe company, BUBEN&ZORWEG. The founders, Harald Buben and Christian Zörweg, driven by a passion for adventure, a keen ear for market needs and a canny eye for seeing and seizing opportunities, had successfully brought the company so far. However, they wanted BUBEN&ZORWEG to go to the next level of growth and had brought in Florian to help them double turnover by 2025. Florian's first mandate: to create and execute a growth strategy for the company. What was at the heart of the firm's distinctive advantage? In which segments and markets should BUBEN&ZORWEG expand?
