Auden AG names new supervisory board chair
Berlin – 24. March 2017
Following twelve eventful and fast-moving months in which Auden AG has established itself as a successful investment company and constructed a high-growth venture portfolio, Dr. Malte Diesselhorst is stepping down from the company’s supervisory board. As a capital markets legal expert and state chair of the Deutsche Schutzvereinigung für Wertpapierbesitz (DSW), Germany’s shareholder protection association, he has contributed substantially to the company’s transformation, particularly where these have involved its requirements as a publicly listed company.
The company’s shareholders have elected Tobias Wittich as the new Chair of the Supervisory Board and successor to Dr. Diesselhorst. Building on his many years of professional experience in management consulting, notably at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Zurich, Mr. Wittich has in more recent years made a name for himself as an angel investor and mentor in Berlin’s booming venture capital scene.
“We have known Tobias Wittich for a number of years and valued him greatly as a superbly networked leader in the start-up scene and a widely respected investor, especially in the seed and pre-seed phases,” says Christofer Radic, CEO of Auden AG. “Our focus in 2017 will be on our portfolio companies, so his business and venture-building experience will be a great help to Auden.”
