Among others, she carried out projects for Amazon while at Jones Lang LaSalle and office refurbishments for users such as BMW, Cisco and Apple while with the RBSGroup (part of the Drees & Sommer Group).
Wolfgang Neupert is the new national manager of the technical due diligence team within Project & Development Services. He will broaden the team and expand technical due diligence as a service across all asset classes, especially in the residential sector. The graduate engineer in architecture has around 20 years of management experience in the field of technical due diligence. Most recently, he was responsible for the "Technical Due Diligence Residential" department at CBRE in Berlin.

This gives her overall responsibility for ESG and sustainability issues in the DACH region at Project & Development Services and an additional coordinating function at EMEA level. In this way, C&W is addressing the steadily increasing demand for ESG-related services in all areas and the increased focus on this area within the company.
