TempoCap, a growth equity venture capital firm specialising in technology and direct secondary transactions, is pleased to announce the addition of a new Venture Partner, Pierre Suhrcke, to the team.
Pierre was previously a partner at ABS Ventures, which acquired many of Deutsche Bank’s venture portfolio of 80 companies through a management buyout. Before that, Pierre spent 17 years in various senior management positions at Deutsche Bank in London and Frankfurt, including as Deputy Head of Equities, Global Head of Risk Management and as a Managing Director of Deutsche Bank Venture Partners. In that role, Pierre focused on investments in financial services and enterprise software companies, and has been on the board of over 20 private companies in both the US and Europe. These include Adeptra (leaders in cloud-based customer engagement and risk intervention solutions that was acquired by FICO), RiskMetrics Group (leaders in risk management and portfolio management solutions which listed on Nasdaq) and Trema Group (a treasury and asset management software business that was acquired by Wall Street Systems). Pierre is also an active angel investor, mentor and advisor.
“It is a pleasure to be joining TempoCap,” said Pierre. “I truly enjoy working with management teams to help them build robust and substantial businesses – and look forward to helping TempoCap portfolio companies become globally recognised leaders.”
“We are delighted to welcome Pierre to TempoCap,” said Olav Ostin, TempoCap Managing Partner. “Pierre brings extensive industry experience to the firm and to our portfolio, and his strategic insights and access to a broad network across FinTech and InsurTech will find us exciting investments and support founders in growing their businesses.”
