Ingo Hillen Angel
Ingo Hillen is the Chief Executive Officer of Sino AG.Ingo Hillen completed his training as a banker at Deutsche Bank, where he also met sino's founding partner Matthias Hocke. From 1998 onwards they start building up the sino Wertpapierhandelsgesellschaft together, which starts its business in October 1998. Trade and finance have been partof Hillen's portfolio from the start.In 2000 the company, which had been profitable since 1999, was converted into an AG. On September 11, 2001, the sino board members Ingo Hillen and Matthias Hocke are nominated to take part in the “Entrepreneur of the Year” competition. However, the event is canceled on the afternoon of the same day - due to the tragic events in New York City.A year later, Matthias Hocke and Oliver Wagner started the software company tick-TS together with Ingo Hillen. To this day, sino AG holds more than 25% of the company.As founder and board member, Ingo Hillen and Matthias Hocke finally successfully listed sino AG on the stock exchange in September 2004 - in the regulated market of the Düsseldorf stock exchange, followed by a switch to the primary market in 2013.Since it was founded, sino AG | High-end brokerage repeatedly awarded top marks in industry tests, for example in the annual reader survey by Börse-Online or in Euro am Sonntag.As deputy chairman of the supervisory board of tick-TS AG, Hillen successfully promoted the IPO of the software company tick-TS AG, which he co-founded in 2002 and has since become very successful.But business is only half the life, and that's why he treats himself to a short vacation every now and then, for example on Sylt with sun, beach, great Rieslings and great food ... To compensate, he jogs regularly.Today he is also responsible for the development of a promising FinTech company and who knows, maybe this will be 'his' third IPO.
