Advisors & Partners Hires Christian Altmayer As Special Advisor
Advisors & Partners today announced that Christian Altmayer has joined the firm as Specialist Advisor – Corporate & Operational Governance.
In his role with Advisors & Partners, Christian will assist in the evaluation of, and provide strategic advice with regard to corporate and operational governance, operating assets of companies, funds or investment solutions underpinning financial transactions or investment cases.
He will help review transactions, corporate structures and long-term business plans from a governance standpoint and benchmark to best of breed ethical standards as well as assist in the development of governance-related data markers and presentations to various stakeholders, including board of directors, investors, investment committees and any official body.
Philippe Teilhard de Chardin, CEO of Advisors & Partners said: “We are delighted to welcome Christian to the fast expanding A&P family of specialist professionals. We anticipate that his highly recognised skills and experience will be a great asset to the A&P organisation, customers, investors and all its stakeholders in analysing, structuring, negotiating, and effecting the firm’s transactions. Governance positioning and evaluation of alternatives to improve such positioning have become key competitive advantages in today’s environment, allowing for various corporate and operational governance structuring or restructuring scenarios and the potential impact of these scenarios on the value of an investment solution.”
Christian Altmayer said: “Advisors & Partners has, since its beginnings, considered that the Governance of any firm is a major contributor towards how an organisation conducts itself and contributes to the overall competitiveness and success of a business. Good Governance is not only limited to hard and soft laws but, through the practices put in place, shows the way how a firm defines its strategy, manages its risks and handles its decision making processes. I am thus delighted and honoured to join Advisors & Partners and to contribute my experience with its professional team”
