CDI Global

History

CDI Global has cultivated success for over 45 years.

Established in Brussels, Belgium in 1973, CDI Global was created to serve the middle market. CDI began as a strategic advisor to industrial and commercial companies looking to effectively grow their businesses through the right acquisitions. Our roots are industry expertise and company focus, rather than banking. This historic focus continues to guide our client-centric approach. CDI’s primary objective is to find the right strategic fit for every company. Strengthening future operations is as important as achieving singular transactional success.

Over the decades, CDI has expanded our scope to include working for financial investors and sellers as well as buyers, with our experts providing a full range of transactional advisory services for virtually any industry and region. We specialize in international company search for mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and joint ventures, providing our clients with strategic insights and new opportunities. Our goal is to provide not just single successful transactions, but lasting results through ongoing relationships with our clients that keep the long-term growth and profitability of a company at the forefront. Nearly 50 years later, we have stayed true to our core function of delivering successful middle-market transactions on a global scale.

We have now expanded to more than 40 offices in over 30 countries, with several hundred professionals dedicated to delivering transactional success. With CDI Global you find teams with deep industry knowledge, language capabilities, and experience with local business practices and customs so we can provide global reach without limit. We are known for the quality of our international personnel, our trademark interview process, and our in-depth knowledge of business strategy and corporate development.

CDI Global thrives on changing times and finding unexpected opportunities through cross-industry and cross-border expertise. Our firm is continually growing and expanding our international reach to provide our clients with industry-leading middle-market advisory, capital growth, project management, company search, and transactional success. We look forward to developing new relationships and facilitating the growth that drives our economy forward.
