Robeco has hired Alexander Preininger as head of EMEA Institutional, based in Robeco's Frankfurt am Main and Rotterdam office.
In this newly created position, Preininger works together with local offices in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to meet the increasing need among clients to engage in broader partnerships and work across regions.
The arrival of Preininger also enables teams to increase cross-border sharing of knowledge and best practices, for a more efficient and consistent approach towards clients. He reports to Christoph von Reiche, head of Global Distribution & Marketing and member of the Executive Committee.
Preininger joins from DWS Group (formerly Deutsche Asset Management) where he was head of institutional Coverage EMEA and member of the board of Managing Directors at DWS International GmbH in Frankfurt.
Prior to that held several senior positions at DWS, including head of Asset and Wealth Management in Japan, and Global Co-head of Client Solutions at DWS in Frankfurt.
