Professionalization

We have been working together with different Verium representatives for many years. I very much appreciate the professional, trustworthy and respectful collaboration. With Verium’s help, we have been able to significantly improve our organization, tools and processes at Toradex and have transformed our founder-led, innovative company into a KPI-driven management organization.

Buy-and-build

Together with Verium we further developed basefit.ch to the leading Swiss premium discount fitness chain and within three years were able to increase the number of locations from 6 to 33. Verium supported us with their expertise at all times during this exciting period, but also gave us the necessary entrepreneurial freedom to successfully implement the clear buy-and-build strategy.
