MorningStar Inc, the US-based provider of independent investment research has named Christian Mesenholl as Head of Central Europe. In this newly carved out role, Mr Christian Mensenholl will be leading the company’s operation in Austria, Benelux, Germany, and Switzerland.

Christian Mensenholl joined MoriningStar in 2016 in a senior business development role for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and was based in Zurich. Most recently he was leading the company’s Switzerland and Benelux operations. Prior to joining Morningstar, he was chief of staff to CEO at Bank Julius Baer. And, previously he was global head of mutual funds and ETFs at Credit Suisse’s private banking division. He also led an international assignment in New York for Credit Suisse Asset Management.

Danny Dunn, chief revenue officer at Morningstar commented on Mensenholl’s promotion:

“Christian’s unique blend of product management, client service, and leadership experience makes him an excellent choice to head our growing business in central Europe. We are excited to build on Christian’s nearly 30 years of wealth and asset management industry experience, further sharpening our offerings to help investors meet their financial goals.”

Mesenholl added: “Our goal is to further expand our footprint in the region and build a brighter future for investors.” 

The new role was carved out after a long time MorningStar executive Werner Hedrich resigned from his position. He was leading the company’s Germany and Austria operations. To fill the gap after Werner Hedrich’s exit, the company plans to hire a new head for its Frankfurt operations who will directly report to Mesenholl.
