A Rothschild leaves crypto group; Weybourne’s CFO departs; tech venture expert joins family venture group

Weyborne loses CFO

Ben Wiseman has stepped down as chief financial officer at Sir James Dyson’s Weybourne family office.

Wiseman advised Dyson on its financial structure pending the move of its headquarters to Singapore. 

He was appointed to the position on an interim basis in September 2018 and completed his contract in March. 

Over the ten years to May 2017, Wiseman was London-based managing director at US Bancorp Fund Services where he developed financial reporting and investor services for hedge funds and private equity.

According to Linkedin, Wiseman has decided to seek a new role as a consultant to the asset management sector but he declined to comment.

He already serves as an independent director to Recommend which increases the power of personal recommendations with the help of network science.

Sir James has moved Weybourne to Singapore to make the most of his valuable Asian connections.  In March, he recently replaced Jim Rowan as chief executive with Roland Krueger, who previously led Nissan’s luxury car division in Hong Kong. Dyson originally hired Krueger to lead its abortive electric car initiative. 

Venture deal maker joins founder-backed investment group

Noel Zeh has joined ALSTIN Capital, a venture capital fund based in Munich, connected to German entrepreneur Carsten Maschmeyer. Zeh joins from Reimann Investors, which manages the money of members from one of  Germany’s wealthiest dynasties, the Reimann family.   

Zeh left Reimann soon after Michael Riemenschneider, Reimann’s former head departed at the end of last year. Riemenschneider has yet to announce a new position. 

Maschmeyer is a well-known businessman in Germany, largely because he sits as a panellist on the German version of the reality television series Shark Tank. ALSTIN is part of a series of businesses owned by Maschmeyer that are managed by the Maschmeyer Group, which include Maschmeyer Group Ventures based in San Francisco. 

Rothschild leaves crypto group

Ondine de Rothschild, a member of the French side of the Rothschild banking dynasty, has left crypto startup Vo1t, according to Companies House filings. De Rothschild is the daughter of the now-deceased Élie de Rothschild. 

Vo1t, which provides digital custody services, was set up in London in 2015. It was recently taken over by  Genesis Global Trading, and de Rothschild appears to have left soon afterwards, after joining Vo1t in October 2018.
