Digital credit marketplace CrossLend has expanded its presence in Germany with new office in Frankfurt am Main.
The long-term capital market experts Christine Huk and Stefan Weisser, as director of Capital Markets & Origination, will look after existing customers and the company's new business locally. In addition to banks, they will also focus on institutional investors such as insurance companies, pension funds and asset managers. Both work with chief sales officer Christoph Polomsky, who switched from BNP Paribas to CrossLend last October.
Huk has been in banking for around ten years. She comes from the investment boutique Palladio Partners, where she was most recently director of the infrastructure equity team. She started her career at HSBC, for which she worked in Düsseldorf and London. During this time she was responsible for the structuring and distribution of alternative investment funds as well as the selection and due diligence of fund managers as a product specialist in the alternative investment team. At the same time, she ensured that the funds met all regulatory requirements efficiently and looked after institutional investors on issues related to the Insurance Supervision Act.
Weisser has more than 20 years of experience in banking and corporate finance. He worked in various senior positions for WestLB in London, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt for several years before moving to IKB Deutsche Industriebank. As director of Loan Syndication, he was responsible for the structuring and syndication of corporate loans, promissory notes, project finance and leveraged buyouts.
