“The core of our my is to bring together people and companies that are in a constant state of change, while looking for continuity and reliability at the same time. I know what moves the real estate and construction industry of today and tomorrow – and can find the right personalities to lead the way into the future.”

— Frederic Stein

With its stable prices and rents, Germany, formerly a safe haven for construction and real estate, is facing a turning point: climate neutrality requirements, growing funding costs, a shortage of skilled labour, digitalisation as well as rising raw materials and construction costs characterise the current areas of stress in this multifaceted industry. The enormous pressure to take action is setting things in motion and sparking the courage to innovate. The collective mindset has now turned towards more sustainability, social responsibility and ecological thinking, thereby decisively impacting further developments.

The great interdisciplinary challenge executives face today is how to drive progress and respond responsibly to change. What are the current market demands? Through what ideas, technologies and concepts can they be met? We know that when it comes to finding personalities with the right potential, perseverance, a systematic approach, creativity and, above all, market expertise are necessary – both in their familiar industry environments as well as in cross-industry intersections, which sometimes makes for surprising, unconventional appointments.
