Why I am interested in the property business, particularly in rescuing companies:
In order to rescue a firm, you have to cope with a serious crisis under great pressure of time, safeguarding jobs and retaining company values. You cannot just box through your own ideas, you have to lead the way by sensitively mediating between all concerned. The rescuer must be absolutely trustworthy, adept at communication, creative, competent and self-assertive. To accept this challenge in ever new situations is for me the climax of three decades of work in the property field.

Special position:

Why I am interested in the property business:
I have the urge to set things in motion and bring them to a conclusion. I can pursue this passion time and again as an interim manager in ever new and demanding situations. Particularly fascinating in the property business is that at the end of the day I have something concrete, ‘constructed reality’, so to speak, to show for my work.

Our customers place a great deal of trust in us when they charge us with taking over responsibility at a very difficult time for a businessman’s life’s work, for considerable property assets and committed employees. My ambition is to act and take decisions first and foremost as if it were my very own company I was looking after.

Why I am interested in the property business:
It was my very first day of work at the bank as a rosy-cheeked assistant to the chairman, and he said this to me: ‘There is nothing more exciting than the property business. All our economic activity is reflected in this branch. You will be confronted with tasks that could hardly be more complex, deal with amounts of money that do not crop up even in your wildest dreams and meet people that hitherto did not appear in your cosmos. To have a say in this environment, you must not allow yourself to be led up the garden path by technicians, technologists, architects, businessmen and lawyers. Above all: you will never regret having taken this road.’ He was right!
