CFE Group

Your partner for the sustainable SME sector.

Our mission

The combination of more than 20 years of track record, our values and our understanding of our clients, partners and our employees, makes our success credible. We live the SME sector through adaptability and pragmatism. Our work is characterised by our knowledge, our social responsibility and our empathy for sustainable business. We therefore keep our chosen mission of proactively strengthening SMEs at the back of our minds when advising every client. 

With our hybrid approach of efficient service structures, digital software components and face-to-face consulting, we create a symbiosis between corporate mentality and customised client relationship management.


Our service offerings are constantly adapted by our teams and aligned with market, economic, public and political developments. With our corporate group, we offer you the opportunity to put together your own individual consulting package from synergetic service fields. We would be happy to advise you personally or via our digital consultant.

Our team

Even though we as a corporate group have a digital approach and want to be as smart as possible for our customers, human capital is a key asset in our success story. Corporate social responsibility for a more sustainable world starts right here.


Our employees can use their passion, creativity and performance expertise to directly drive our strategy across all departments and thus directly contribute to the development of our corporate strategy.

Unsere Philosophie

Our values and responsibility

"How do we understand the way we interact with each other and what do we hope to achieve for our employees?" 

Within the CFE Group, our entire corporate identity is closely intertwined with our core values. We define our goals not only on the basis of monetary focus but also measure success by the added value we can create for our employees and clients. Our HR, management and all the other team members create an inspiring work culture in which cohesion, respect and self-development take centre stage.


Every employee at our firm is a valuable individual whose unique skills and ideas are actively encouraged. We take responsibility for the well-being and professional development of our employees, because we believe that together we go further and individually we set standards.


Welcome to the CFE Consulting Group, where values are not just words, but the essence of how we work together.
