Our Team

Carter Looney is a serial entrepreneur who believes in the importance of business ownership for our society. After studying International Banking and Finance at Thunderbird School of Global Management, he went on to build a software and services business helping corporate clients worldwide better manage the "business of IT". Since making a successful exit in 2007, he has concentrated on using his know how and extensive international network to help family owned companies increase their value and find an investor / successor. His specific focus is on acquiring projects and managing them to completion. He has lived abroad for much of his life and currently makes his home in Germany. 


With more than 15 years practical experience in business advisory and interim management, Alexander works with family owned and corporate clients to transform their businesses, often taking the role of Program Manager and implementing our recommendations. 


Alexander has an degree in Computer Science and an MBA in General Management from the European Business School (EBS) in cooperation with the University of Durham in UK. After working in a management role, he co-led an MBO of a mid-sized IT consulting firm, turned it around and grew it into a group with 200+ employees, profitably leading it as a member of the executive team. After selling the company to an international group, he remained on as CEO of the German subsidiary and managed the transition into the new group. 


Alexander has a particular focus on creating and leading business transformation programs in midsize to large businesses. He is particularly adept at working with executive management to ensure strategic programs are set up and implemented effectively. His management of change competency and his track record of successful transformation projects make sure that his customers reach their goals on time and in budget.

Udo Raith joined MML & Partners in 2011. Up until that time, he gained more than 15 years of experience in marketing and finance in large companies focused on distribution and e-commerce.


In his role as CFO for subsidiaries in a multi-national e-commerce organization with more than $1.5 Bil. in revenue, he was directly responsible for several reorganization and restructuring projects as well as M&A transactions. Building on his degree in economics, his practical experience in marketing and finance helped focus his understanding of how to pragmatically get and keep a company's finances in good shape. One of his crowning achievements was growing an online subsidiary from a three person team up to a highly profitable company with € 100 million in revenue. 


Udo focuses primarily on helping our customers build financial reporting systems that not only improve their chances of getting financing, but help them manage the company effectively.
