Thorsten Leischke heads Asset Services at C&W


International real estate consultancy firm Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) is strategically restructuring its Asset Services division in Germany. From 15 April, 50-year-old Thorsten Leischke will be the new Head of Asset Services Germany. He will succeed Bianca Cohen, who is leaving C&W. Leischke will report to Yvo Postleb, Head of Germany at C&W, and to Tina Reuter in her function as Head of Asset Services EMEA at C&W.

With this appointment, C&W is strategically realigning the business of the Asset Services division in Germany. In future, the 45-strong team will focus even more on sustainable concepts for premium properties and an experience-oriented management approach that increases the well-being of buildings’ users. And which thus goes beyond traditional property management.

Thorsten Leischke brings with him more than 24 years of experience in the international real estate industry. A graduate in supply engineering and real estate economics, he most recently worked for VLR Germany GmbH. Previous professional posts took him to M+W Zander, DeTeImmobilien, SEB Investment and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). Leischke was also active for two environmental NGOs in Namibia.

Yvo Postleb, Head of Germany at C&W: "In Thorsten Leischke we have been able to win an experienced manager to lead Asset Services team in Germany. He brings with him a profound knowledge of owners' requirements and in-depth understanding of day-to-day operations from his previous work. He will generate high added value for our clients via strategically tailored solutions."

Tina Reuter, Head of Asset Services EMEA at C&W: "Our regional positioning coupled with local expertise enables us to respond optimally to our clients' requirements. I am delighted to have gained Thorsten Leischke, an innovative, internationally experienced manager with an investor's perspective, for the German market." 

Thorsten Leischke, Head of Asset Services Germany at C&W: "Cushman & Wakefield is one of the few providers in the market that can handle European, cross-border mandates from a single source. In the future, we would like to support our clients' goals even more strongly as a strategic partner with the range of services we offer - with comprehensive recommendations for action far beyond the mere provision of data."
