Such personalities often occur in connection with experienced investment bankers who hand over administrative tasks and again do more of the actual business at the heart of investment banking: customers and deals. Mohr is an old driving man in Frankfurt's investment banking, had worked for Dresdner Kleinwort on a number of prominent transactions and rose to head of M&A after the merger with Commerzbank in 2009. He later moved to William Blair. For the advisor, who specializes in medium-sized transactions, Mohr managed, among other things, the purchase of Stedim Biotech for Sartorius, the sale of CCC to Telus and the sale of Backwerk to Valora. Mohr is involved in urban society as a board member of the Anne Frank educational institution. According to FAZ information, William Blair is currently mandated alongside Barclays,in order to sell the packaging manufacturer WP (formerly Weener Plastic) for the financial investor 3i - a transaction likely to be worth billions. Blair doesn't comment on that.
