The Asian continent is an important market for Atheneum, which operates a research hub out of Shanghai. Atheneum has further reinforced its presence by welcoming Sebastian Vohradnik, a former member of Monitor Group, to its Management Team. Sebastian will be working in collaboration with David Chen, Chairman China, to expand the company’s reach and execution in China and the greater Asia Pacific.
Ammad Ahmad, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Atheneum, expressed his strong support for the addition: “Sebastian will be a great asset in solidifying our presence in Asia, both in expanding our expert network and client base across the region. We envision China to be one of our main research hubs that will allow us to provide 24/7 service with global reach and local depth. Sebastian brings the precise experience we require for building up our Shanghai operational team and ensure we continue a unified vision and quality worldwide.”
Sebastian is an entrepreneur at heart and further adds to the consulting and financial track record of Atheneum’s Management Team. He founded an e-commerce company based in the Czech Republic and operating across CEE, which is now a leading player in its market segment. Prior to that, Sebastian gained years of investment banking and M&A transaction experience with Ermgassen & Co. in London, a member of the Monitor Group and leading M&A boutique with a focus on cross border transactions between Europe, Japan and greater Asia. During his M&A career, Sebastian achieved a strong track record of projects in the industrial, e-commerce, consulting and renewable energy segments in Europe, South Africa and Asia.
