Jun 1 2017 | 8:52pm ET

Global private equity manager Adams Street Partners has formed a new office in Munich, Germany and brought aboard veteran industry professional and former AllianceBernstein executive Martin vom Hagen to lead it.

In his new role, vom Hagen will focus on the development of institutional client and consultant relationships within Germany, Austria, and Switzerland as the firm expands its efforts in the region, Adams Street said in a statement. He will join the firm as a partner.

Vom Hagen most recently led and managed AllianceBernstein’s relationships with institutional investors, financial intermediaries, funds of funds, banks, and family offices in Germany, Luxembourg, and Austria. Before joining AllianceBernstein, Mr. vom Hagen held positions at AXA Investment Managers and Commerzbank. 

"Adams Street Partners is excited to announce our new Munich office," said Jeff Diehl, managing partner at Adams Street. "Being 'on the ground' in Munich enables us to provide our clients with a geographically relevant perspective on private markets. We have been present in the region for a number of years, and are confident in Martin's ability to lead our efforts and provide the high-quality service our clients have come to expect."

"Martin, with his long history of providing outstanding investment management services to clients across the DACH region, will not only make a great addition to our team, but will also make significant, immediate contributions for Adams Street's investors in both the U.S. and Europe,” added Kevin O'Donnell, partner and global head of business development & investor relations at Adams Street.

Adams Street Partners has been present in the DACH region for many years, having managed private market programs and customized solutions for leading institutional investors in Germany and Switzerland since 1998, the company added.

Adams Street Partners commenced its first investment program in 1972, and is credited with establishing the first private equity fund of funds for institutional investors. The firm currently manages approximately $30 billion of assets across five strategies – primary and secondary private equity fund investments, co-investments, private credit investments, and direct venture/growth investments.
