In 1972 InterGest was founded by Prof. Dr. jur. Heinz Anterist. He is Chairman of the Supervisory Board at InterGest France S.A.S. and a licensed lawyer in Saarbrücken. The name InterGest is derived from the French term ‘gestion internationale’ (international management).
Prof. Dr. jur. Heinz Anterist had been working as a legal advisor for the transport company Anterist & Schneider and had become aware of the fact that clients needed a lot more than just logistics services in order to sell in foreign countries. They also required assistance in establishing subsidiaries, payroll, book keeping, customs clearance, legal and tax matters. Dr. Anterist searched for a provider of such services, but without success. He decided to fill the gap himself by launching a specialist business. The idea of InterGest was born.
In 2006 he received The Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany from the former German Federal President Dr. Horst Köhler for developing this company concept and for setting up the worldwide InterGest Organisation.
In 2001 Prof.Dr.Heinz Anterist handed over the management to his son Peter. Peter Anterist islegal practitioner and visiting professor at the University CUFE in Beijing.
In order to distribute the tasks of the expansion of the group, in 2016 we appointed InterGest Worldwide with the three General Managers Prof. Peter Anterist, Nils Blunck and Dr. Alberto Canova founded as a parent company.
Over the past 40 years InterGest has steadily expanded its worldwide presence. As at early 2019 we have 45 InterGest partners and operate in 51 countries, covering the most important international markets.
We also place significant emphasis on emerging markets, building up a presence in these markets even when general trends are still focused elsewhere. Examples of this are planned InterGest partnerships in Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Panama and Uruguay.
In our offices worldwide we employ around 750 people and administer over 1,700 branches and subsidiaries of international companies.
