Wellington names new venture partner

German VC Wellington Partners has added Loïc Le Meur, the web entrepreneur behind Ublog, to its venture partner program.

Le Meur has founded and sold four internet companies, making him one of the leading figures of the Web 2.0 world. French-born, he moved to San Francisco in the summer of 2007 to start his new company, Seesmic, and becomes Wellington’s ninth venture partner in the technology team.

The firm’s venture partners perform an advisory role and offer support to portfolio companies in their strategic planning, key executive hires and business development activities, as well as occasionally serving on their board of directors or advisory boards.
