New chief operating officer for HQ Capital

Heiko-DimmerlingInvestment management firm HQ Capital has appointed Heiko Dimmerling as its new chief operating officer. A statement from the Frankfurt-based company, which specialises in alternative investments, said that Dimmerling’s main aim in his new position will be to align the internal operations of the firm’s private equity, real estate and direct investment businesses. Dimmerling, previously a partner and managing director of the investment firm Triton, replaces HQ Capital’s previous chief operating officer Georg Wunderlin, who became chief executive of HQ Capital last September. Before working for Triton, Dimmerling was a project manager with the auditing and tax consultancy giant Arthur Andersen and had previously studied business economics at the University of Applied Sciences, Fulda. “We want to continue to pursue the path we have chosen by combining our business divisions and to further drive growth in the coming years,” said Wunderlin. “Heiko Dimmerling’s expertise and experience in managing business processes will contribute significantly to achieving this goal.” ©2017 funds europe
