AURELIUS Group to expand its management team

  • Donatus Albrecht to look after the group-wide M&A strategy
  • Matthias Täubl newly appointed to the Executive Board with responsibility for operations

Munich, July 17, 2018 - AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) is announcing changes to its Executive Board today. From August 1, 2018, Donatus Albrecht will look after the group-wide M&A strategy of all business areas of the AURELIUS Group and will step down from the Executive Board of the listed AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA. Matthias Täubl, who has already been with AURELIUS since 2008, will join the Executive Board with responsibility for operations at the same time.

These personnel changes are in response to the significant increase in the size of the AURELIUS Group in recent years, which now has operations as an investment group across Europe. Since it was founded, AURELIUS has progressed from being a local turnaround investor to a pan-European multi-asset manager. AURELIUS Equity Opportunities is the publicly traded investment arm with a focus on the acquisitions of companies in transitional or exceptional situations. The AURELIUS Group also operates in the Growth Capital and Debt Opportunities business fields.
