This in turn benefits our clients".

Since 2018 he has been a member of the Holding’s management board together with Tilman Kay (chairman of the Management Board) and Dr. Stefan Ziegler.

Group in Germany and abroad.

The Council’s Board of Directors is comprised of representatives of top brokerage firms who provide strategic direction and guidance around industry initiatives and proactive advocacy for the commercial brokerage industry’s regulatory and compliance matters. “We look to our Board for their expertise and leadership as we continue to move the needle in the industry,” says Ken A. Crerar, president/CEO of The Council.
