Amsterdam, 20 September 2019 – Peak is pleased to announce that David Zwagemaker will be joining as Head of Finance & Operations. After successfully launching its new EUR 66M fund last month, Peak was looking to further strengthen its team to invest in European marketplace, platform and SaaS companies.
David brings a range of experience in building and growing companies to the team. He previously worked at Rocket Internet, where he led real estate portal Lamudi in Bangladesh and launched Helpling’s Asian operations in Singapore. Afterwards he started Weissmaler, a platform for painting professionals in the DACH region. Next to his entrepreneurial background, David has experience as an angel investor. He also advised startups (as an independent consultant over the last years) as well as corporates at Booz & Company (at the start of his career).
In his role as Head of Finance & Operations, David will provide Peak’s portfolio companies with hands-on support on topics such as data analytics, finance and reporting. David about joining Peak: “I was looking for a venture capital firm that doesn’t just passively invest in companies, but also actively helps them grow. Peak does just that by providing hands-on support to its portfolio companies. I am looking forward to working alongside the entrepreneurs in our portfolio and help them grow their companies.”
Stefan Bary, managing partner at Peak, commented further: “We are very pleased David joined our team as he brings a very strong combination of an analytical skillset and true pragmatic day-to-day startup experience. With David, we can bring more value to our portfolio companies and further build our platform as an early-stage investor.”
