Vontobel is expanding its team of Wealth Management advisors in Germany with new employees. Four experienced experts from Sal. Oppenheim in Munich and one advisor from Oddo-BHF Bank in Hamburg have been appointed, so that the German team has grown to a total of more than 20 asset managers.

Victor Lindner and Thomas Riecken, who previously worked for Sal. Oppenheim at the same location, are joining the Munich based Vontobel team of asset managers in July. Doris Lemke and Olaf Bauermeister, who are also switching from Sal. Oppenheim in Munich to Vontobel, will join in October 2018. Asset management expert Stella C. Streckwall joined the Hamburg team from Oddo-BHF Bank in April.

As a qualified bank clerk with additional loan training, she gained extensive experience with wealthy clients at Dresdner Bank, where her most recent position involved the care of wealthy clients at the Frankfurt a.M. branch office, before she switched to Sal. Oppenheim in 2008. Lemke will continue to enjoy divisional responsibility for the Munich location at Vontobel and will report to Thomas Fischer as a member of the Munich Executive Board.

Bauermeister has been at Sal. Oppenheim since 2006, where he was most recently a client advisor for Private Asset Management in the Munich branch office. He has over 20 years of experience in banking activities.

Lindner, who joined Sal. Oppenheim in Munich in 2007, was most recently employed as vice president in Private Asset Management at the Deutsche Bank subsidiary. Before that, the qualified bank clerk and business manager advised wealthy private clients at Hauck & Aufhäuser Privatbankiers in Munich.

Riecken began his career with Deutsche Bank at the end of the 1980s. The qualified bank clerk can now look back on over 20 years of experience advising wealthy private clients and as a securities specialist, including positions at M.M. Warbug, Delbrück & Co., and Merck Finck & Co. At Sal. Oppenheim in Munich, he has spent the last six years working as senior portfolio manager for Individual Mandates.
