Marius Schöner, Country Head of Germany at CBRE Investment Management, says: “As an investment and value-add expert, Sebastian is a perfect fit to complement our German management board. He has built a broad industry network and as Head of Transactions materially contributed to our business growth in Germany over the past years. We are looking forward to continuing our trajectory in Europe’s largest economy together with Sebastian as part of the management team.”
Since 2019, CBRE Investment Management’s German portfolio grew by more than €2.5 billion, including €800 million of value-add investments and €1 billion in off-market deals. The most recent acquisition is a €560 million residential portfolio from Vonovia.
