More expansion for Connaught Finance’s global team

Grossman Claudius

Connaught Finance has appointed Claudius Grossmann to its global team as the company’s international business grows apace.

Grossmann has spent most of his life and career in Asia, namely Japan, China and Hong Kong working in commercial as well as investment banking, project financing, and also in real estate, alternative financing and many years in industrial leasing.

In his time in Asia he has built up business units in China for companies such as Dresdner Bank AG Shanghai Branch back in 1993 and Deutsche Leasing (China) Co., Ltd. in 2006. Following the economic cycles in Asia, Claudius also gained extensive experience in the professional restructuring of business units.

While Grossmann started out in risk management, his role soon expanded into managing whole back office operations as well as increasingly working also on the sales side.

With this objective in mind, he has joined Connaught Finance to contribute to the expansion and success of the company building up among others good and extensive relationships with German and other European SME and vendors operating in Asia and beyond.

A Connaught Finance spokeswoman said: “Besides his working experience we also welcome his good understanding of different cultures in Asia, sufficient political as well as economical insights into Asian and European affairs, and effectiveness dealing within a dynamic multicultural business environment.”
