Our urgent task was to find an appropriate candidate with the necessary skill set for the Supervisory Board in time to be approved by the General Meeting in April 2018. From the perspective of professional background, the challenge consisted of the narrowly focused competency profile of the new member of the Supervisory Board, which appreciably restricted the number of potential candidates without a conflict of interest. Only two weeks after the task was assigned to us, we were able to present the client with two high-quality candidates. Both of these were former CFOs of listed real estate companies. In less than two months after we began our search, the nominating committee had selected a candidate and submitted him to the General Assembly for nomination at the end of April 2018.
The chosen candidate brings extensive expertise in the fields of real estate financing and controlling, experience with listed companies and a high level of specific knowledge of the real estate sector.
