Lennertz & Co, the owner-managed multi-family office, has announced the addition of two new senior executives to its management team. Angelina Gaede joins as Head of Fund Administration, while Caroline Militzer is appointed Head of Human Resources (HR). The expansion is in response to recent business growth, the firm writes.
“Our company has grown significantly in recent years. The core of our philosophy is providing the highest quality of professionalism in the support and advice we give to our clients. We are delighted to have two experts whose knowledge and experience will help us to continue strengthening our business operations,” says Philipp Lennertz, managing partner of the family office.
As Head of Fund Administration, Gaede will oversee the finance team, leading the administration of funds for Lennertz & Co’s alternative investment platform. The 31-year-old previously worked as a finance manager at BlueYard Capital, a Berlin-based venture capital fund, and at Mola-Administration, a fund administrator for private equity and venture capital funds in Hamburg. Gaede has seven years of professional experience in fund structuring, administration, accounting, regulation of venture capital and private equity funds.
In Caroline Militzer, Lennertz & Co writes that it has gained an experienced Head of HR. The 41-year-old previously worked for the Otto Group from 2006 as an in-house consultant, then from 2012 in change management and organisational development. She led projects implementing new leadership and organisational models and introduced modern HR instruments. To Lennertz & Co, Militzer brings expertise in project management, organisational development and human resources, the firm says.
