Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA / Key word(s): Change of Personnel
Following its merger with TIG Themis Industries Group and having focused
and strengthened its investment portfolio, Heliad Equity Partners GmbH &
Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) has now restructured its management. Bernd
Sexauer, 48, a highly reputed private equity manager with around 20 years
of experience in the sector has been appointed as the company's CEO.
Among other roles, Bernd Sexauer was previously a member of the management
at Deutsche Beteiligungs AG (DBAG) and Managing Director at DZ Equity
Partner GmbH. In his career to date, he has invested more than EUR 350
million in around 50 private equity transactions and successfully
implemented around 20 exits.
Heliad Equity Partners is convinced that, together with its new CEO,
Heliad's experienced team will be able to exploit the recovery in the
German private equity market, the strength of the German economy, and
especially the German SME segment, as well as the company's strong
financial resources to further expand its market position as one of
Germany's leading SME investors.
The dedication shown by the previous management, namely Ralf Flore and
Thomas Kunder, enabled Heliad Equity Partners to be successfully guided
through the financial crisis. The Supervisory Board and the general partner
extend their thanks to the retiring management team for their superb work
in these challenging years.
The finance department at Heliad Equity Partners will in future be headed
by Melanie Büsing as Financial Director. A qualified tax advisor and
auditor, she worked in recent years as Senior Manager in the Auditing /
Transaction Services department at MAZARS Hemmelrath.
