Heiko Dimmerling appointed new Chief Operating Officer of HQ Capital
Frankfurt/New York, April 19, 2017. HQ Capital, a leading independent investment manager for alternative investments, announced today that it has appointed Heiko Dimmerling as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO), effective April 18, 2017. Dimmerling, previously partner and managing director of the investment firm Triton, will control the internal operations of HQ Capital. He takes over this responsibility from former COO Dr. Georg Wunderlin, who was appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of HQ Capital in September 2016, and has since been undertaking the duties of both CEO and COO.
“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,” says Dr. Georg Wunderlin, CEO of HQ Capital. “Heiko Dimmerling’s expertise and experience in managing business processes will contribute significantly to achieving this goal.”
Heiko Dimmerling’s responsibilities will include aligning and further optimizing HQ Capital’s internal workflows, thus enabling the investment teams from the private equity, real estate and direct investment divisions to deploy their existing resources more efficiently and to serve clients’ needs consistently using the company’s range of investment strategies. At the same time, the teams will continue to make their investment decisions independently, allowing HQ Capital to fully exploit the Group’s growth potential.

In this position, he was co-responsible for reorienting the company’s strategy as well as shaping its structure.
