March 10, 2022
CBRE Investment Management has promoted Marius Schöner to Head of EMEA Residential Operator Division, responsible for all residential operator capabilities across the EMEA region. Marius will also continue in his role as Head of Germany and Austria.
As Head of EMEA Residential Operator Division, Marius will oversee all asset managers working for the EMEA residential platform and will be responsible for the execution of residential investment strategies. He will also be instrumental in the development of investment strategies for the residential sector. The newly created role is part of CBRE Investment Management’s move towards a more sector-focused approach which introduces a new structure, evolving operations into four sector specialised operator divisions: office, retail, logistics and residential.
Rik Eertink, President, EMEA Real Estate Division at CBRE Investment Management, said: “Marius has been instrumental in CBRE Investment Management’s success and a driver of our expansion across Germany and Austria over the past seven years. He will be an asset to the residential platform, and I am looking forward to expanding our residential capabilities across the region together with him.”
Marius has more than 26 years of experience in the real estate industry. Since 2014, he has been heading CBRE’s Investment Management’s business in Germany and Austria. Over the period, assets under management in these two countries have quadrupled from €900m to €4bn. Previously, Marius held pan-European management positions with Deka Immobilien, Morgan Stanley, MGPA and BlackRock.
CBRE Investment Management is a leading investor-operator in residential with €5.3 billion* residential assets under management and owns over 200 assets. The platform has a broad footprint across all major European residential markets and invests across a number of different investment strategies and programs including three residential specialised funds; two that are country-specific (Netherlands and UK) and one pan European strategy.
