Growing up in Berlin, Alexander began his career with an apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at F.C. Trapp AG. Afterwards he moved to Marburg to study Business Administration (Dipl-Kfm) and complete a Masters Degree. His career journey started with audit experience in the old economy, through to the world of Private Equity and a Multi Family Office before finally arriving in Venture Capital.
Before HV, Alexander was Finance Manager at Armira, an Industrial Holding in Munich. After relocating to Frankfurt am Main, he was part of the Audit and Assurance team at PwC, then Controller at Halder, a buyout fund.
In each of these roles he gained invaluable skills and knowledge, including developing a firm to the point of independence after a mother company buyout. Accruing lots of experience in a variety of roles, the Venture Capital sector was the missing piece of the puzzle. For Alexander, Venture Capital is the fastest developing, and most exciting sector of all.
Alexander likes hiking in the Bavarian mountains.
I THOROUGHLY ENJOY ADDING MY EXPERTISE TO SUPPORT THE GROWTH OF STARTUPS THAT COULD POSITIVELY CHANGE THE WORLD.
