Finatem hires new MD

Finatem, the German mid-market buyout firm, has appointed Robert Hennigs as managing director and partner, further strengthening the firm’s investment capabilities. He joins from DZ Equity Partner, the private equity arm of DZ Bank, where he was a managing director.

Hennigs has over 10 years experience in the German mid-cap private equity business and was responsible for DZ Equity Partner’s co-investment in two of the transactions in Finatem’s first portfolio. At DZ Equity Partner, he was also responsible for the development of private equity deal flow from DZ Bank’s network of over 1000 co-operative banks.

At Finatem, one of Hennigs’ primary roles will be to continue to develop this pipeline of proprietary deal flow. DZ Bank has agreed to give Finatem the first right of refusal on opportunities arising from the DZ co-operative banking network that meet Finatem’s investment strategy.
