Sanne has named Jens Grüneklee as director of business development in the firm’s Luxembourg office.

Grüneklee initially joined Sanne in 2018 as part of the portfolio monitoring team and has since been focused on investment management, corporate development and M&A.

During this period, he has also held a number of senior leadership roles including corporate and business development head at aviation firm Swissport, advisor to chemical solutions firm Altana and CEO to fintech firm cash.life.

According to Sanne, Grüneklee’s appointment is a key driver in developing the firm’s EMEA offering within the alternative asset and corporate business services market in Luxembourg.

In his new role, he will assist the wider EMEA business development team in all new and existing business development at Sanne Group Luxembourg and LIS, which includes private equity, private debt & capital markets, real assets and hedge funds.

In a statement, Sean Murray, managing director, EMEA at Sanne said, “We’re continuing to see strong growth and a healthy pipeline of new business as Luxembourg is a key jurisdiction within EMEA. I’m delighted to welcome Jens to the senior leadership team, his expertise in facilitating cross-border structures will enhance our business development efforts as Luxembourg remains a strong growth area in the alternatives space. Jens is locally renowned for his level of expertise and his established and credible track record in the funds industry in Europe will further enhance the services we provide to our valued and growing client base.”
