International real estate consultancy firm Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Michael Fleck to lead its Frankfurt Capital Markets team. In this role, he is responsible not only for Frankfurt but also for the Rhine-Main region as well as major cities in southwestern Germany. In his new role, he succeeds Richard Tucker, who has left the company.
A commercial and real estate lawyer, Michael was previously responsible at C&W for real estate acquisition and sales consultancy for the German B-locations. Together with the combined team, which now totals ten employees, the 49-year-old will expand the company’s presence in the Frankfurt market and act as the prime contact for investors wishing to participate in Frankfurt’s real estate market and those of the surrounding cities.
As Head of Capital Markets Frankfurt, Michael will continue to report to Alexander Kropf, Head of Capital Markets Germany. A long-time Frankfurt resident, he has more than 20 years’ professional experience in the real estate sector and has brokered transactions with a volume of more than 7 billion euros.
"With Michael Fleck, we were able to fill the position with a long-standing and experienced employee from our own ranks, who has excellent knowledge of the market. With his now-expanded and comprehensively strong team, he will move us decisively forward in the Frankfurt market," said Kropf. The other German B-cities, which were previously Michael Fleck's responsibility, will now be divided into regions under the responsibility of the respective investment location managers.
