Team

Our most valuable asset is not on any balance sheet: creative, motivated and well-trained employees are the key to Deutsche Beteiligungs AG's success, and the investment team has long been one of the largest and most experienced in our market.
 
With around 90 people, we are well positioned to handle the entire investment process with our own resources. The Board of Management, investment team and corporate functions work closely together. Flat hierarchies and short decision-making paths enable us to be close to the market, prepare investment decisions in a well-founded manner and closely support the development of our portfolio companies.

Board of Management

The DBAG Board of Management consists of three members:

Torsten Grede, the Board’s Spokesman, Tom Alzin and Jannick Hunecke. They are members of the investment team and actively involved in the transaction business – in identifying investment opportunities and in supporting and disinvesting portfolio companies.

Investment Team

Performance in the private equity business is closely linked to the people involved in it. With more than 30 professionals directly engaged in ongoing operations, DBAG’s investment team is the largest in Germany. Its members have a broad skill set and more than 250 years of combined private equity experience in Germany’s Mittelstand. They can draw on their multifaceted knowledge – for even very complex private equity transactions.

The team member’s expertise in DBAG’s business is also founded on their longstanding service. Deal Captains have been with DBAG for an average of 15 years. The experienced members of the investment team invest their own money in the portfolio companies alongside the DBAG funds and DBAG. That creates an identity of interest. A project team of two to four individuals is generally responsible for each transaction.
