Berlin, 21. März 2023 – Impact investment provider ecoligo announces that Dr. Marcus Salewski will take over the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) from ecoligo co-founder Markus Schwaninger. Moving forward, the latter will focus on innovations in the financial product area as Chief Innovation Officer (CIO).

Dr. Marcus Salewski has a wide range of experience in scaling start-ups and the strategic development of established companies. He has supported a number of M&A transactions and IPOs, including the IPO of e-mobility specialist Aumann AG in 2017. Most recently, he was active as CFO at Berlin-based tech start-up Lofelt, where he was responsible for the acquisition by Meta (Facebook).

The previous ecoligo CFO Markus Schwaninger will take on the role of CIO. In doing so, he will focus on the vision of making ecoligo the leading provider of impact investments. Founded in 2016, the company closed its €10 million Series A financing last year and remains on a strong growth trajectory. The addition of Dr. Marcus Salewski to the management team lays the foundation for future growth plans and scaling.

“With Marcus, we welcome a very experienced and high-profile CFO to ecoligo,” says Markus Schwaninger, “his wealth of experience in scaling high-growth start-ups and listed companies, as well as in the area of M&A transactions, is very valuable for our future plans. This will help us set the course for further company growth. My own role change to CIO allows me to hand off operational work, create room for innovation in impact project financing and accelerate ecoligo’s vision.”

Dr. Marcus Salewski adds,

“I am very excited to come on board at ecoligo. The fight against climate change is one of the central tasks of our generation, which is why the company’s mission convinced me from the beginning. The innovative business model that offers investors a unique combination of impact and return, the team and the strong international growth path made my decision to join ecoligo an easy one. I look forward to contributing my expertise in building as well as scaling companies.”
