Cushman & Wakefield considering INDEGO launch in Germany, Heiko Himme appointed as advisor

Following the successful launch of the INDEGO (INvestDEsignGO) white label platform in the UK a year ago, real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) is now exploring the market potential for a bespoke flexible workspace solution for owners in Germany. 

INDEGO provides office owners with the opportunity to create a range of offerings such as flexible workspace, coworking, conferencing and other services in their own buildings and make them accessible to all tenants in the building. The INDEGO team provides strategy, design & build, marketing, leasing and operations from a single source. 

From 1 February, C&W will be bringing Heiko Himme on board as an external consultant for the market research and conception of the service. The experienced industry expert most recently headed the Germany, Northern, Central and Eastern Europe real estate division at WeWork and was responsible for expansion and lettings in the region in this capacity. 

His experience in the flexible office solutions segment now flows into the careful consideration of providing such a range of services in Germany. Working with C&W is not new territory for Heiko Himme. The 45-year-old was with the firm from 2006 to 2018, where he headed Office Agency Germany and the Berlin office, among other things. 

The aim of the renewed cooperation on a consultancy basis is to come to a decision on the market launch of the service by the summer of this year. Heiko Himme will work closely with Yvo Postleb, Head of C&W Germany and the German Executive Committee, as well as Emma Swinnerton, Head of Flexible Workspace EMEA. 

Heiko Himme: "Coworking providers have made a significant contribution to the “flexibilisation” of the working world and thus also to a change in the real estate industry in recent years - and usually as tenants of office properties. INDEGO is now going one step further in this growth segment. Via the white label approach, flexible workspace can now be presented as a pure service for owners without a lease. This opens up completely new dimensions for the holistic and proactive asset management of office properties. 

Yvo Postleb, Managing Director Germany at C&W: "We are constantly looking for ways to expand the range of services we offer. INDEGO has great potential as a concept. Nevertheless, it is important for us to analyse the market carefully before any possible launch. In Heiko Himme, we have succeeded in gaining a long-standing confidant with deep expertise who will support us in sounding out market readiness for this product."
