Mark Milne, who formerly ran his own third-party marketing firm, Alternative Investment Consulting, has joined Aquila Capital Concepts as the Swiss country manager for the Hamburg, Germany-based alternative investment manager.
“One of my managers was Aquila, with whom I began a relationship last year, and they became serious about expanding their client base outside of Germany, hence my coming on board,“ explained Milne.

Aquila Capital is unrelated to the energy company Aquila, currently engaged in a proxy battle with activist hedge fund Pirate Capital.
