After more than 25 years of service in various management positions at Universal Investment, Oliver Harth has decided to leave the company at the end of September 2017, when the current financial year ends. Having joined the company in 1992, Harth was on the management board of Universal Investment since 2001, most recently as chief operating officer.
Bernd Vorbeck, CEO of Universal Investment, and Daniel Fischer, director of parent company Montagu Private Equity and a member of the supervisory board of Universal-Investment, both expressed their understanding for his decision.
“Over the last 15 years, Oliver Harth has played a significant role in enabling Universal Investment to develop into the leading independent provider of Master-KVG (master fund) and administration platforms,” Fischer said. Bernd Vorbeck and Daniel Fischer thank Oliver Harth for his contribution to developing the group of companies and wish him great success in his future endeavours.
The company’s remaining managing directors will take charge of Oliver Harth’s areas of responsibility, such as administration services and IT, on an interim basis. Besides Bernd Vorbeck, the management board of Universal Investment includes Frank Eggloff as chief financial officer, Markus Neubauer, Stefan Rockel and Alexander Tannenbaum.
