“As one of the most active private equity markets in Europe, France has been an important market for Humatica over many years.

Commenting on his appointment to Managing Partner for France, Löning said: “I am pleased to build on Humatica’s nearly 20-year track record of serving French clients by leading the development of our team and service offer in France. I have known Humatica very early on and am impressed by the development of its capabilities, and its strong and clear focus on the private equity environment.”
