Local presence, central strength: our recipe for outstanding centre management

Our shopping centre managers are competent contacts for tenants and investors, have an excellent level of training and regularly share knowledge. This ensures high quality and the ability to run the centre autonomously. Our local centre management team is supported by regionally based leasing managers and technical property managers with central control.
At our branches, commercial property management teams also provide support that is optimally tailored to the respective property. This combination of centralized and decentralized structures enables efficient and optimum performance of the properties.

Shopping centre management par excellence: Correctly positioned for tenants and owners

When making decisions, we focus on the centre positioning that has been agreed with the investors, using it as our guideline for centre management.
We also offer our customers an interesting, positive and constantly surprising shopping experience that is tailored to their positioning. Together with our tenants and investors, we thus ensure the long-term success of the properties we manage.
"Professional management of all processes by a well-coordinated team of specialists on site has always been our maxim for the comprehensive management of shopping centers. The challenges we have faced in the past and those that lie ahead have shown that this is still the right approach."

Commerce in a state of constant change

We are meeting the challenges of increasing online retail with a variety of different marketing tools that emphasize the ”shopping centre experience” on the one hand, but also build a bridge between bricks-and-mortar retail and the online world on the other. They include digital customer loyalty tools and virtual tours of the centres and stores.
In addition to the integration of social media, we continue to see the staging of the shopping experience around the POS as the decisive added value for shopping centres. Clear positioning, diversity in all areas and a feel-good atmosphere play a major role here. We try to meet these demands every day, with proactive management, respectful cooperation and goal-oriented solutions.
